We stayed here for 2 nights. The hostel was good, clean and cheap. Doing laundry was $5. Wifi was good and the pancakes in the morning do a good job filling your stumache. Althought Boquete is a little colder than the ☀️ at the beaches it is good for a change. We did the koffie tour and the Panoramic view,... More

This review is not about the hostal but about the travel service by the same owners. My daughter and I wanted to climb Volcan Baru and hired a guide through Guameru agency. It appeared to be 2 guides, Jonathan and Alex. Both were very young but experienced for the hike. Really nice guys and we had a lot of fun.... More

Arte Hostal is a gorgeous little hostel located right in the middle of Boquete. The hostel offers WiFi, breakfast, and much more. David, the hostel caretaker, ensures that all guests are comfortable. Two friends and I stayed for three nights, and enjoyed our stay immensely. The highlight of our stay was a midnight hike, with David as our tour guide,... More

Arte Hostal in Boquete is a good, clean hostel with friendly, accommodating staff. Breakfast is included (coffee and make-your-own pancakes with fruit); a nice way to start your day. The central location was also great.

Wood carving was fun...The tree house, scenery and most importantly, the people, David and his dad made it a unique experience. Language is no problem, my broken Spanish got through most part and actually made the class more memorable as I need to really 'listen' and 'feel' it. Recommend wood carving to people who would like a different cultrual experience!

The Arte Hostel is very comfy with a familiar atmosphere and nice breakfast. They have small, clean rooms and you can really feel at home there. We can really recommend!
