About Hostel Mamallena

We're bringing years of experience of Panama City to Boquete, turning this historic building into what will be one of the best hostels in Boquete. Hours of painting have turned the inside of this once drab building into a rainbow of colour. From the moment you walk into the reception you'll feel right at home, then when you continue into your room, the lounge and the kitchen and you'll realise that you are home.

Whether you choose one of our large private rooms with bathrooms or one of our 4 bed dorms, you´ll be more than happy. Everything is designed with the backpacker in mind, comfy rooms, the lounge/dining area with cable TV and 100s of DVD movies, the fully stocked kitchen, FREE pancake breakfast, the free WiFi internet and computers, the quiet reading area, the balcony, the 2 gardens with tables, chairs and hammocks, and the helpful friendly staff(not as common as you might think....).

- Private rooms with ensuite(some have 2 double beds, or 1 double and 2 singles).
- 4 bed dorms
- FREE pancake breakfast
- Free tea and coffee
- Large fully stocked kitchen
- Lounge and dining room with cable TV and 100s of movies

No matter what you´re here to do we can help you do it. Just ask for information on hiking Volcan Baru, the Quetzal trail or one of the other trails around Boquete. If you´re after a tour we can arrange our own coffee tour, horseriding, scooter rentals, white water rafting or send you high above the jungle canopy on a zipline.

One thing you can be sure of is that we´re totally objective, and won´t push you to pay for something that you can do for free.

Remember to checkout Hostel Mamallena, Panama City as well.
