This place is a good deal for the price for Boquete. We found a nicer place for the same price in the centre of town but it was too close to the fair grounds where loud music was playing due to the town festivities in February. Pension Topas is located a few blocks from the city centre and it was...

For $16/night, perhaps I shouldn't complain. First the good: It was a great deal and a great location to downtown boquete, there was free wifi, and the bed was firm and bedding clean. Now the bad: The room I stayed in smelled so terribly of wet dog that I had to buy room spray to mask the odor. I brought...

I liked my stay in Room 7, which is the upper room in a two unit building at the back corner of the property. The view from the chair on the walkway is nice and there are plenty of birds to see and hear. That also means hearing roosters from the adjacent property early in the morning, as well as...

FACT: I got bitten by the pit bull from Pension Topas in Boquete. FACT: Axel (owner from the hostel) let his 27 year old daughter (owner of the pit bull) in charge of this situation and she just loved to play a power game, enjoying the fact I could do nothing as a tourist (leaving a statement at the Municipio...

If your are a backpacker, or traveling through on a budget, this place is for you. The property is gated. This is one of the cheaper places to stay in Boquete. Rooms with private baths are $48, rooms with shared baths are cheaper. You can even camp on the grounds and use the shared bathroom even cheaper. Axel the owner...

Previous reviews of this place seem, I think, a bit kind. Yes, it is quirky, friendly, reasonably priced and well located. However, I would not go so far as to say it is clean. Basics get done but the walls were dirty and beginning to mold. The tiny bathroom is showing its years too. When we were there we could...

The location was great in that it was close to the central park, bus to and from David, and other amenities. It is also about a block from the main road, and is therefore quiet except for a neighbour´s rooster that likes to wake you up well before the sun rises (if you are a light sleeper). There is a...

Boquete, Panama is a small place and this is a quirky but nice little "pension" with bedrooms scattered around in resort fashion with a central reception/breakfast area. It is a basic but nice place to stay. Some of the outside walls are covered in quirky murals including scenes from the Tintin books!. Breakfast was adequate. There is Wi-fi which is...

For the price, this is the best. I was there for 2 weeks in January/February 2015. It's a bit folksy, a touch timeworn but very friendly, clean, accommodating and centrally located. I hope when I go back to Boquete, they'll have room for me.

I stayed here 2 months starting november 10 th 2014. Nice small room for a little more than the price of a bed in a hostel. German and Panamanian people in a very pretty environnement. Close to everything in Boquete. Rooms are kept very clean, beds changed regularly, actually more often than i did at home. You will me treated...
