We had such a good time in Panama City while staying at Mamallenas. Richard, the manager, was professional (and awesome fun) the entire time - even took us to a couple of venues in the city such as the fish markets and Hard Rock Cafe. The kitchen was well-equipped, they booked our sailing trip, and the place was kept really... More

Awesome hostel! Has everything you need, great atmosphere, tons of space to chill out and meet people. Best of all, Richard and the staff are super nice and welcoming. The beds are really comfortable and they organize great tours to San Blas. We stayed here twice and had a great time! Highly recommended.

Mamallena is a nice, cosy and colorful hostel, where you'll find a really nice atmosphere. The staff are really friendly and always ready to help you. My plan was to stay here 3 to 4 days and I liked it that much that I stayed much longer! There is a beautiful garden with hammocks where you can relax, while enjoying... More

One of the best hostels I've stayed at here in Latino America. Great wifi. Cold aircon at night. Kitchen is awesome. The lady's who work here are super sweet and make sure you are taking care of. Hostel owner, Richard, is super great and personable. Stayed here for 8 days and loved it!

I stayed 3 nights at Mamallena before my San Blas sailing trip. Richard and the staff are super friendly, welcoming and helpful. It's a chilled out hostal with a great vibe. Lots of common areas, great tunes, comfy beds, air con at night and a kitchen. I highly recommend Mamallena!

Mamallena is a relatively nice hostel with plenty of amenities (full kitchen, laundry services, hammocks, books, etc.) and many colourful common spaces. We stayed here for one night. When we checked in, we were greeted by many friendly travelers lazing on the couches, using the Wifi. Our room, located downstairs, was small and had no windows, but was private and... More

Good, clean facilities. In Panama City, the aircon at night really was the icing on the cake. It was so refreshing to return to each night. The location is a short walk to the waterfront and it is quite easy to also get to Casco Viejo, fishmarket, Allbrook, and downtown. Pancake breakfast every day and a good kitchen for whatever...

We stayed four nights in Mamallena and I really recommended it. Friendly staff (Richard was a great help when we wanted to book a trip to the San Blas), good breakfast and a nice living room were you can watch movies. They have a huge collection of movies. It is a comfortable place to stay on a good location.
