My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this property. We had very low expectations, but it was quite nice and comfortable. We brought our own bed cloth and towels. I will recomend this property for LOCALS rather than other country tourists. We had good meals cooked in the shared kitchen and all other guest were extremly nice and respectful of the Covid-19 precautions.

Pros: cheap private rooms, friendly staff and good location in the town. Also a supermarket nearby. Cons: wifi is not that good in the room, the kitchen wasn't clean at all. It didn't seem that anyone was cleaning it. The supermarket was next to our room and it was loud in the night, which was ok when the window was closed. The staff speaks little english. Everything is old and used also the blankets. No real community If you want a cheap private room go there.

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 a refund. Over half the tour group revolted and refused to stay there and made Tucan put us in a proper hotel. Front of the hostel faces the rear of a large supermarket. Waterworks outside in the street so they had no water for the toilets and showers. Our room was dingy with only a small window. No view. No tea and coffee making facilities. No fridge. And no air conditioning. Only a tiny fan. Avoid. We refused to stay there.

Response from MIKEPS21, Owner at Hostal Boquete

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 at the time of your arrival and apologize, but that is out of our control and your tour guide was informed 3 days prior to your arrival. Construction I will also add that is occurring in the whole town, not just in front of the hostel. I am very skeptical about your comments concerning the other things when before stepping in the lobby hearing a person in your group say "I don't want to stay here". An example of the reason I am skeptical is your complaint of the kitchen. If you had stepped foot in the kitchen you would have seen that it is a fully equipped kitchen with Stove, microwave, coffee machine, hot water dispenser and large REFRIGRATOR. I don't understand how you could have missed it. The rest of your group that stayed found it quite enjoyable and had made a great dinner on their last night.

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 look dirty and filthy.

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.
