Located right on Boquete's parque central and just steps from the bus stop, Mamallena is probably the liveliest backpacker option in this otherwise tranquil mountain town. The big common rooms and kitchen contribute to an energetic communal atmosphere, and large groups generally cook together and hang out well into the night. The staff is helpful and friendly, and offer group excursions to nearby waterfalls, hot springs, a mini-canyon, and Volcán Barú, among others. At $11/night for a comfy dorm bed, this is a pretty great deal. Nearby Refugio del Río is a more peaceful option for budget travelers.Recommended for:Backpackers
