My wife and I stayed at Hostel Boquete only one night in June 2012, but we got a pretty good fix on it. We wanted to stay one day longer at our first hostel in Boquete, but couldn't because of incoming guests, so we dropped in on Hostel Boquete at night and spoke with the clerk, who said she had a room available, and she showed us room 8. It was clean and big enough for two beds and our luggage, with a slanted ceiling and low door to the bathroom, but for $27.50 (June is the low season) was fine for us. We didn't commit until the next morning, and when I went to check in, the clerk gave me the key and said no need to pay her anything until we were ready to leave. The hostel is right on the river, whose sound was pleasant for us but might be irritating to some. The woman who recommended the place didn't like the noise at all, while two German travelers whose room was facing the river loved it. There is a deck overlooking the river on the second floor, and another, bigger one, with a barbecue grill and tables, on the ground floor. There's also a communal kitchen there, pretty well stocked with dishes, utensils, and cookware. We shopped for food at the local store, Romero's, and prepared a barbecue for ourselves and three new friends, and it was very pleasant to sit and eat in the evening with the river and the wind. The staff were very nice to hook up the gas for the grill at no charge, and we met five other guests, all very friendly. We invited them to join us, but they declined. We had a good sleep, although the mattress was old and saggy. We checked out in the late morning, when we paid our bill and thanked our hosts. No complaints for the price. Oh, and a tip: Get your morning capuccino at Romero's only a block away. A small is $.40, a large $1.50, and quite good.
