Taken there by our tour guide. Tucan Tours booked it. We had thought we had paid for hotels but cheap and cheerful Tucan had booked us into this dirty cheap hostel. Prices are $20 per night and even that is a rip off. Rooms where dirty. Bedding was ancient and suspicious. Kitchen was so awful i took pictures to seek...

I understand the importance of a first impression and I utilize comments and complaints to improve on things at the hostel, but only when the complaints are genuine. The fact you believed you were coming to a hotel is also a strike against your expectations. I understand about the construction in front and lack of water for a short time...

Pro's: The name says it all. It's an Hostel and doesn't pretend to be anything else. Good location close to centre of town and a fast flowing mountain stream at the back of the Hostel. Very friendly, helpful staff inspite of limited English speaking ability. Con's: Not many. It's an unpretentious Hostel. Construction work at the back made the place...

As a hostal get the work done, it does have a nice location. Rooms are overall good, small tv, cable, Wi-Fi, small fan(which you probably wont use), hot water and a nice balcony. Recommended for people with a budget who only need a place to stay.

I have never done a review before, but I find them very helpful, so here goes... I stayed in room 7 for six nights in April. I would definitely stay here again.

The location for this Hostal is great but that is about all that is good about it. I was with a group and we had five rooms. All were dirty it looked like all they had done in the last month was change the sheets. The reception closed at nine every night but we were not told this. The rooms...

Although the staff doesnt speak much english, which was surprising, everybody were really helpful! We had everything we needed. The place is very quiet and in a very good place. Close to everything. We just happened to come in a time that for one night somebody had a huge party across the river, so that night we didnt get much...

our first room was on the street side - very noisy as it faced onto the supermarket truck parking; we moved to the river side which was nicer - nice balcony. rooms lacked any kind of storage - shelves, coat rack, drawers, whatever. kitchen looked grubby, and didn't even have a sink for the first days we were there. it...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hostal Boquete for two nights. We had one of the standard rooms, so the view out of the window has not really been very special. However, the room was clean and perfectly ok for the price (we booked via agoda which has been cheaper than directly on the website of the hostel). The room...

This hostal has a nice room with a little balconi in front of the river and the bridge, it was a very nice room, very comfortable, clean and great size. The only problem is the sower, it was completely crazy. It was either insanely hot ou freezing cold, as we've read in other reviews.
