Not sure what the review below is about saying that the Spanish women was unfriendly. She answered a hundred and one question for me! She helped me book a boat to Colombia. As I had to wait a few days for the boat she gave me some suggestions of places to visit and hostels to stay in. I stayed in... More

We arrived here at about 8am fresh off the night bus so we were pretty pleased to find a clean bed, decent bathroom and friendly staff upon our arrival and were amazed they let us check in so early!! Our booking from the night before hadn't even come through to their system either but they said no problem and sorted... More

I found the staff very friendly. I arrived at 2 am and they were helpful. There is WiFi, a computer, a very basic breakfast included- bananas, tea, bread, peanut butter. The beds were clean with nice sheets. I was in a dorm. It is basic, for sure, the casa Luna probably has better atmosphere, but I enjoyed my time. Great... More

The hostel is the cheapest hostel in casco viejo and you can defintely see this... The beds are not very solid and if the person over or under you moves the bed is shaking. The toilets look like they are in use for 10 years or longer. When i arrived there a spanish lady was sitting behind the reception and... More

We stayed in a dorm. Decent enough beds, nice old building. Great location, close to most things you would want or need. Receptionist was helpful, but more options available that she won't mention. Breakfast was inculded which was nice, but it's only toast and bananas. Better than nothing.

I tried to get a room here but the dragon with a wide tooth gap that worked the front desk shot flames at me sending me running to another spot to stay at. Stay at Panamericana instead. Its only a couple blocks away across from the Herrera Plaza.

Not sure why this has such bad reviews..i think it is a shame. This is a great hostel which does what it says. Its good value - 22 dollars for a private room with shared bathroom and breakfast included is one of the best prices round here and our room was great. We had a balcony and towels were provided....

Booked one night at this place, as I was en route from Europe to Colombia via Panama. Good location, the terrace on the top of the building is great to chill out and star gaze. I wasn't very interested in sleeping, as it was the first day of my holidays, so I went out with a couple of other guests... More

Everything is dirty, and the paint is peeling off the walls. Interesting building, but it would need a huge renovation to make it acceptable for most travelers. Super noisy neighborhood and bad fans, make it very hard to sleep. Staff doesn't project any caring...just hand over the money, and don't bother me.Use this only as a last resort for this... More
