Very clean and doesn't feel like a hostel at all due to the lovely architecture of the house...
gardens and close river is relaxing and especially the many computers were very practical!

The Great big dining table invites a lot of people to chat and the guys who work there were very helpful!!!

Of all the hostels I've ever stayed at this is by far the best ! There rooms and grounds aren't what you would expect from a hostel they are stunning an clean . There is much more of a hotel feel about the space .
The staff are wonderful as well as the owner who hosted 2 BBQs while we were there in the outdoor tarris area. The food and company were wonderful . Be sure to did out if it's BBQ night an grab something to contribute at the shop . You don't want to miss out on the festivities .
I would reccommend this hostel to anyone of any age . They will make you feel welcome and help you plan your stay in Bouquete .

Absoultely beautiful place. CLEAN private rooms with balconies. Dorms were clean and comfortable. The view was breath taking. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Very short walk to the centre of town, but tucked away so you feel like you're in your own little paradise!
We altered our trip and came back for an extra night!
I would recommend this hostel to any and all.

Great atmosphere, clean rooms at a great rate, lovely gardens, go to sleep to the sound of the river. We loved Boquete and Refugio del rio. Stayed longer than we planned in both a private room in the main building then the treehouse. Both were great, especially the treehouse. Would book that again but you need to not mind it being slightly open to the air. You dont need to look anywhere else!

Nice rooms, big kitchen, nice location!
Only few rooms in the Hostal that makes it a quite place. Good place for couples.
Staff was friendly and helpful. A 5mn walk from the center of Boquete.
I'll go back there for sure!
