My favorite Hostel in Central America. I stayed here for a few weeks and have returned whenever I have a stopover in Panama City. It is like a home away from home. Big TV area with lots of Movies, Outdoor area for relaxing in a hammock or exercising. There is a bus stop located right outside the hostel. It has... More

Stayed here for a few days by myself. There is nothing wrong with the hostel, it's clean and stuff, just it's not very social and the staff were not the nicest. The area also wasn't the friendliest for a solo female traveler, lots of cat calling. Beds were good, and lots of supermarkets around.

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

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...

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
