The Purple House International Backpackers' Hostel
The Purple House is very cozy and friendly, clean and comfortable, a lot like coming home to your own house. We are owned by travelers who know what travelers look for! Our theme is purple, and most guests are surprised to see just how many things we have managed to find in the color PURPLE!
David City is a convenient stopping point on your way to Costa Rica, or Bocas del Toro. You can easily make day trips to Boquete and Cerro Punta. It also tends to be less rainy in David City, than in other parts of the country, so with more dependability you can plan your city jaunts, shopping and sun intake in our backyard!!
