Nice waterfall ...river and pools by the river!

I stayed for 3 nights and I had a wonderful experience. The waterfall is a hidden gem....so naturally beautiful. I swam everyday and listened at night for the sounds of the water. The owner is so nice and he will do anything to please its customers. I had a private room and it had air condition and private bathroom. There is a kitchen to cook....and the pools are huge to swim....water comes directly from the waterfall. To get there its very easy...just take a bus from David via Boquete and ask the driver to leave you in the waterfall hostel. It's about 20 minutes from David.

Stayed 3 nights in Jun 2017

Waterfall Hostel, great place to stay in chiriqui!

My girlfriend and I had a great stay at the Waterfall Hostel. The staff was courteous and always willing to make our stay the best experience. The rooms are comfortable for the price tag. You get what you pay for. There's two pools and access to a waterfall. Overall, a great experience, will definetly book there again.
