Most amazing hostel experience! So unique! the castle is amazing and the Hobbit houses are a trip! Awesome food, Great staff. 10 out of 10 ! While staying at the castle my family and I went on daily adventures and hikes around the gorgeous Boquete and felt like royalty coming back to spend the rest of the day and relax at the castle jacuzzi followed by tasty food and a glass of wine. We will definitely come back next year and stay a bit longer! Kep up the good work !

Bambuda castle has something for everyone. It’s a hostel but also with private rooms with en-suite bath. It’s very laid back but the staff is also attentive. The food is delicious but very inexpensive. There is an indoor pool and jacuzzi and a self catering kitchen. It is a bit of a walk into town, however taxis and a shuttle are available if you didn’t bring a car. The view is simply stunning.

Nice staff and food, also amazing views. I give them a 4 star because they have parking situation, they don’t have much space available. And they do not enforce the country covid safety regulations (customers wearing a mask), I saw so many guest (all tourists) without mask walking around the facilities. As long as we don’t have in the country a bigger % of vaccinated, they should enforce the country safety regulations because they also have Panamanian guests

Most hostels do not offer food/meals, but because of the distance to town (30+ minute walk) they serve three meals a day. Do not pass this up! My last dinner was sea bass rolled in black sesame seeds and roasted vegetables. Not only was the taste incredible, but the presentation was amazing. Absolutely gourmet quality. AND they are open to the public not staying there.
