Hostal Gaia is synonymous for “cute & cosy” in the hostel dictionary, and will definitely charm anyone wanting to stay in a small place at very reasonable prices. Hostal Gaia is situated in the heart of Boquete, at only 5 minutes walking distance from all the restaurants, bars, shops, post office, and our Explora Ya office.
Gaia is brand new, and probably one of the smallest lodging options in Boquete with only 4 rooms. Its cozy family like feel makes it the ideal place to meet fellow travelers and socialize in a relaxed setting, and gives you the impression of living in a shared apartment or house. It simply reunites the perfect conditions if you are traveling on a budget, while wanting to live in new and comfortable facilities. The advantage of its size, is that it has the same amenities larger hostels offer, only that you do not have to share them with as many people! Imagine not having to wait for the shower, and no overcrowded kitchen! It is a lot more intimate, and allows for new friendships to grow. The pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff make it even more enjoyable to stay there, and they will answer any question you may have about Boquete and its surroundings.
Gaia has 2 dorm rooms that can accommodate 4 and 6 persons, and 2 private rooms for 2 and 3 people respectively, and all the bathrooms have hot water. The beds are new with semi-orthopedic mattresses, bed linen, pillow and blankets. Gaia also offers free parking in front of the hostel, as well as laundry facilities and a camping area if you would like to make your Boquete experience a bit more adventurous.
When you are not up and about visiting the amazing activities Boquete has to offer, you can simply hang out in the social area and sip on some of the free coffee they offer, surf the net thanks to the free wifi connection, play board games with fellow travelers, or cook a nice meal in the fully equipped kitchen and enjoy it in the spacious dining room. Moreover, Gaia is located in a small side street, therefore, enough peace and quiet in order to guarantee your good quality sleep, as you will not have to hear traffic or party noise coming from the main avenue.
To get to Hostal Gaia from Explora Ya, turn left on the main street, and you will pass Global Bank as well as Todo a Dollar. Take the second street to your left, and Gaia is situated right behind the restaurant Sugar and Spice. Their reception desk is open from 8am to 11pm
