About Us


Welcome to Joe’s Layover Hostel,

Where every smile tells a story and every guest becomes a part of our extended travel family.

Our mission is to offer more than just accommodation; we strive to be the crossroads where cultures converge and friendships blossom.

Nestled in the heart of Boquete, we provide a warm space where adventure and tranquility coexist, allowing you to experience Panama like never before.

Our vision is to be acknowledged as more than a hostel; we aspire to be that unforgettable place that calls you back, where each stay is unique and every farewell is a “see you soon”.

Essential Info

And so, with a clear vision and a lot of passion for sharing what we love, two brothers decided to create a special place for all those who, like us, seek unique experiences in their travels. 

A year ago, we started in the bustling City of Panama, and with pride, we have expanded our dream. We opened a second hostel in David, and now we find ourselves on the way to Boquete. In our hostel in the vibrant city of David, Chiriqui, we have created a space where good vibes permeate every corner, and the natural attractions of the region come together to offer you an unforgettable stay. Come and be part of our story, meet travelers from all over the world, discover the local culture, and let yourself be carried away by the magic of Panama. We welcome you with open arms!
