Hostal Nomba Boquete

Let us tell you first of all that we are excited you are making travel plans to come to Boquete, Panama. From the moment you arrive, after of course seeing the natural wonders of the fertile valley we live, you will see healthy and very happy people who feel blessed to be living here.

It will also be difficult to miss the Baru Volcano towering high above the rich fields of coffee and old growth forests. What may surprise you is just how friendly the people from Boquete or “Boqueteños” can be, and how willing they are to offer a helping hand. The eco-adventure capital of Panama, is not to be miss, and in Boquete, we call that place our backyard.

Hostal Nomba

“The staff at the hostel is great! Ryan really knows the area all it has to offer. The hostel is in a great location, close to town center and has a great adventure company!”

-martie ahmann, USA (hostelworld review)

For those with a budget or for those who want privacy, you will find comfort in our rooms, two kitchens, clean environment, and helpful staff. For groups we have a seperate cabin that is very popular during holidays and weekends. In no other place in Boquete can you find budget accommodations, with a “center of it all” location, and more welcoming atmosphere than at Hostal Nomba.

We’re just a block or two away from the bus stop, supermarket, restaurants, bars, taxis, and trails leading into the jungle with views of town.

Compare us to other hotels, bed and breakfasts, backpackers, lodges, and camping areas. We guarantee that you will be more than satisfied with our quality of service and facilities all for a price you can backpack on. Take it from us…. we are backpackers.

Located within the hostal, we have useful information of the area and what to do cheaply or free. We take pride in offering expert guided tours, gear & bike rentals for those who want to explore on there own, or maps and suggestions on what to do in the area.

Whether you want to go river rafting, or just take a stroll through the botanical gardens, Mirador Adventures tour office is available till late. Staff is always on hand to reserve your next activity or a bed for you at your next stop. We also are happy to get you set up with trot on horseback through the around and over the hill of Boquete or have you shouting about how much information you were presented on any of our coffee tours.

People often ask, ‘how can so much be offered, with a place with such an intimate and friendly feel as Hostal Nomba’? Come and check out what many backpackers are already talking about.
