The large room with good bed, a small table, TV, hot shower, the spacious covered terrace, the large garden, swimming pool and attentive owners were very positive for me. So I stayed here five nights. Many restaurants, supermarkets and the center are only minutes away. I paid $ 25 for a double room with bathroom, in the lowseason. Axel, the...

The garden is pretty. The host gaves very good advices for hiking. The room was ok. Private room with private bathroom. Even if there is a sign saying that there is hot water, on a 10 minutes shower we barely have 1 minute shower. We didn't sleep well because there were an annoying roaster screaming all night. It wasn't expensive...

Garden area was nice. The owner of the place was nice and gave excellent tips on place to go hiking. The room was not that nice though and shower was not really warm at all. Wifi only "worked" in the common area. At least it was cheap.

Pension Topas is a nicely laid out hostel some 6 blocks from the central park of Boquete, on the same street where buses arrive and depart the city. One can catch departing buses to David in front of the hostel, with a bus every 30 minutes. The hostel has a choice of several room sizes to fit the travel budget....

We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at Pension Topas for two nights in March 2014. We $38 a night for a large room with a comfortable queen bed and cable television. There was no fan or air-conditioning, but neither were necessary in the cool climate. The bathroom was okay and had hot water. There was an okay common area but...

Pension Topas is a lovely place to relax after your daily adventures in Boquete. The garden is filled with flowers and there is a swimming pool, which wasn't filled when I was there by the way. The rooms are big, clean and painted in colors. The location is very private and quiet. A very good choice, bit more expensive than...

Pension Topas is situated beside the river with beautiful grounds and plenty of flowers in bloom. We camped on the grounds ($8 per night) and used the shared bathroom. The shower had great water pressure and plenty of hot water (in the afternoon; mornings were a little chilly). The bathroom itself could have been a little cleaner (not helped due...

Pension Topas is located on a quiet street with a lovely little garden and patio for eating and socializing. The mattresses are firm, hot water reliable and rooms clean. There are entertaining murals painted on the building walls, a dog who sleeps on an easy chair and a swimming pool without water.

Pension Topaz has really nice grounds and a quiet, friendly atmosphere. The room was nothing special, but it was the cheapest we paid for a decent double room with private bathroom in Panama - so I can't complain. The owner was nice, although the organization in the place was not the best - when we got there at around 4pm...

With it's large green garden Topas fits in perfectly within the Boquete environment. Nice areas to sit outside, a swimming pool and even space to camp. We had a basic, but nice room with a private balcony and hot shower. The place has a nice backpacker atmosphere. Axel, the owner, is very helpful and friendly and offers a decent breakfast...
