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- 2 gardens with tables, chairs and hammocks- Balcony- Quiet reading area- Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staffNo matter what you´re here to do we can help you do it.

“Quite a good hostel”

Rating: 4 Reviewed on June 14, 2019

We had quite a good stay in Mamellena Boquete. The staff were friendly and happy to help and our room was clean and tidy. The pancakes for breakfast were good but I found the fridge to be quite messy...


In order to reach the destination, you must follow these instructions.You have to go to David City and take a bus to Boquete from the main bus station. The bus will drop you right on Parque Central (the main square) where the main bus terminal of Boquete is situated. Opposite the park, you’ll see us on the road on the right hand side. We are literally only 30 meters from the main bus stop.


24 hours cancellation.
