Stayed here a few days ago. Location is good for Casca Viejo, the causeway and MIraflores. Rooms are okay, but our light didn't work and tv very old and almost inaudible. Self serve Breakfast which is included is so bad, it pretty much consists of very cheap bread and boring cereal with some old looking jam in the fridge. For... More

We (couple 41 & 50) stayed at Hostal Amador Familiar in March 2014 for total of four nights. We paid $38 a night for a room with bathroom, 24 hour air-conditioning, ceiling fan and cable TV. The first room was very small and basic with one double bed. The bathroom was small, too. The seco d room was bigger with... More

We were recommended to stay here by another hostel that turned us down because we have two young children. We were originally in another hostel (Mamallena) that was just not right for us at all, way too crowded! The pros: AC in every room; TV with cable in every room; wifi speed is decent and reaches from the rooms to... More

Fun to stay in an old canal house. Safe location. Not the best directions. Driver had no idea where it was from the bus terminal. Good thing I had a guide book. Best part was a shop around the corner past the pizza place with an awesome selection of Panama textiles at good prices. Stocked up before my trip back... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night and found it friendly, safe and convenient. We had booked a private room and were pleased with the furnishings and the bathroom. Best shower we've had in PA so far! The only complaint was that our AC knocked out and we had to open windows during the night, which was quite... More

My wife and I stayed at the Amador Familiar on two different occasions while visiting Panama City. Both times at the Amador Familiar we booked a private room with air conditioning, private bath and comfortable bed. This hostel is in a safe residential neighborhood and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Initially, we thought the location was a little... More

We stayed at this hostal on and off over the course of 2 weeks while we explored Panama with my parents. Both my husband and I and my parents stayed here and were very happy with the location, the staff, the rooms and the cooking facility. A note on the location-it is really great if you prefer to be outside... More

overall: mediocre - only consider if you have a car and just need a place to crash. horrible service (needs new mgmt). cheap $35 for a double with a/c, parking, and breakfast. cons -if you don't have a car, there is no point staying here. you are just about as far as you can be from the city and taxis...
