We've been hostel jumping for a month in Panama. The hospitality and the family setting at Hostel Mamallena has been one of my favorite parts about this trip! The owner is beyond helpful about the area and offered many activities for us to do! The people there were all really nice, the movie selection was huge and the kitchen area... More

Hostel Mamallena is the best hostel in the city out of the ones we visited. A group of 7 of us visited Lunas Castle, Hostel Siriri and Mamallena was clearly the best. The manager is named Richard. He is very knowledgeable with local restaurants, best transportation to get to tourist sights like the Canal, and gave us tips on other... More

I used Mamallena as a meeting location for my boyfriend in myself to meet up on a trip in Panama City. The location is ideal, and variety stops are near by. The place is secured and offers dorms as well as privates. Free internet access and loads of information and links for trips and adventures in the general area. They... More

Reeaally nice hostel. If you want to party then go to Luna's Castle, if you want a friendly atmosphere then this is the place to be. It has everything you need, security, kitchen, good wifi, cable TV and a huge movie collection, lots of communal space, good transport connections and within walking distance of the old and new areas of...

There's a garden area out the back which is so lovely at night after the sun goes down & it gets a little cooler! The private rooms are... More

The people in the hostel are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, the common rooms really nice. A lot of place to chill and use the really good internet. In the kitchen you can make your own pancakes the hole day. There are enough showers and toilets, you don't have to wait normally. It is not in the... More

Good hostel, the room was fine and the bed was comfy. Great spot to stay for a couple days in the City. Strong wifi, large communal areas (two outdoor and two indoor), good kitchen with a "free shelf" of food for sharing and to reduce waste, coin laundry worked well.

I stayed at Mamallena a couple of nights a week on my nights off, for the 6 months that I was living in Panama. It's a great place, the staff is constantly cleaning, bathrooms are clean and well kept & always available. The kitchen has plenty of room to accommodate large volume, there is a TV room with hundreds of... More

Mamallena was a pretty standard hostel. I was looking forward to the A/C after the website said all rooms have A/C. Unfortunately they were not clear on when A/C would be on. They later said 9am-9pm, which was loosely enforced. I was awaked at 8am when the A/C stopped. That evening they also turned it on late. Again A/C is... More
