Bambuda Castle is a hostel located 5 short minutes out of Boquete town. Nestled in Panamas coffee country the Castle overlooks a coffee plantation and offers beautiful views of Volcan Baru. With a restaurant, bar, a swimming pool and hot tub it truly is a dream spot.
The castle was formerly owned by a man who had promised his young wife that one day they would live in a castle. And so they did. It was bought in 2016 by two Canadian childhood friends who thought it only made sense to make it into a hostel.
Bambuda castle is warm and cozy on the inside. The friendly staff team is determined to make your stay comfortable and will help with everything from booking tours to doing your laundry.
We have an open kitchen free for everyone to use.
When you live in a castle every hour is happy hour so thankfully Bambuda Castle has an excellent restaurant/bar with stunning views of Volcanoe Baru.
Bambuda Lodge in Bocas del Toro is our other hostel. It is highly reviewed and is Lonely Planet’s Top Choice. The Castle is a proud addition to the Bambuda family and will be bringing the Bambuda vibes to the volcanic mountains of Boquete
The two Bambudas are the perfect place to meet other travellers, socialize and enjoy beautiful Panama.
Starting October 1 we will be offering a free shuttle to and from the Castle. The shuttle will leave from the Coffee shop ‘Perfect Pair’ at 9:45 am and 5:00 pm. The shuttle will leave from Castle, heading to Perfect Pair at 10am and 5:15 pm. Perfect Pair is only a few blocks from the main town square.
