I ended up staying in Boquete far longer than planned and a big part of that was due to the level of comfort at Mamallena!
Hostel is very clean. Rooms are well laid out and comfy. Kitchen is clean and big, though a bit crowded while I was there because there was an abundance of people who liked to cook.
Location is great, right on the town square!
And the staff... I got to be friends with Miguel, the owner. He's an extremely interesting guy to talk to and seems to cultivate a very likable volunteer staff. I hung out at the hostel pretty much every nice with the staff in the garden making a bad habit of rum + ice cream (seriously, mix a little rum into ice cream and stir it up. Good stuff!)
I can't wait for my next trip to Boquete when I can reconnect with all the people I met there, including those at Mamallena!
