the hostel is located direclty at the central park in boquete which means the bus to david leaves almost right in front of the hostel!
the rooms are clean, some private rooms even have private bathrooms (they are slightly more expensive than those without private bathroom), which is pretty helpful because there are not so many showers and toilets in the hostel.
the kitchen is great! really big and quite clean and you get free pancakes for breakfast. during our stay, the staff made a surprise barbecue for the hostel guests, which was really nice and a lot of fun - thank you!
they have a little patio and garden which is really cute and nice to relax, there's free internet and wifi and they do have lockers. they also arrange tours - we chose the coffee tour for $20 and it was great!!
the staff was alright, but sometimes i had the feeling that they got annoyed by people asking questions. also, when we arrived, we waited like 5 minutes until the guy behind the desk started talking to us and the first thing he said was that if we didn't have a reservation we had to leave, without even looking at us or saying hi. and sometimes when you were standing there trying to ask them something they just ignored you for minutes until you could talk to them. but obviously not all of them were like that!
apart from that, we enjoyed our stay there and i would recommend the hostel because of its great location and the nice clean private rooms.
