Pension Topas is considered a low budget hostel, but could easily be considered a mid-range hotel as it only has private rooms in a beautiful, tranquil setting. This family owned hostel is conveniently located in a residential area, allowing you to enjoy a quiet and relaxed environment but still within a 5 minute walk to the center of Boquete and to our Explora Ya office. We recommend Pension Topas to those who like a nice, basic and quiet setting, close to the center of town, at a low cost, and with a cozy atmosphere. It is simply the best compromise for travelers on a budget who wish to avoid the backpacker party environment.
As soon as you walk through the main entrance of the property, you start feeling the peace and serenity that comes from this well kept garden in Boquete. The hosts at Pension Topas are the Schoeb family from Germany, and the owner Axel will go the extra mile to make your stay an enjoyable one.
This hostel has a total of 7 private bedrooms which are basic but clean, adequate enough, and nicely decorated with a retro European feel. 5 of the rooms have their own private bathrooms with hot water and can accommodate up to 4 guests each. The other 2 bedrooms share a bathroom.
In the outdoor area, you will find a small swimming pool for you to enjoy on the sunny days of Boquete, and while you have no other activities planned, as well as a nice terrace to have a cup of coffee, eat breakfast (at an extra cost), or simply check your emails thanks to their wifi internet connection. Each morning by the riverside garden you can enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee to help start off your day.
To reach Pension Topas when you exit our Explora Ya office on the main street, turn right and walk across the Central Park in direction of “El Municipio”, then turn right and keep walking straight past the police station and the “Machu Pichu” restaurant, until you see the colorful sign of Pension Topas. The entrance will be on the left side of the street.
