Stayed here with 5 friends felt like home. Met really nice people had lots of fun. The pool is great to cool down in the heat and the people are really caring and make sure you have a good time! They also have a nice chill out area with a pool table!

Me and my girlfriend had 5 nights in Panama City, and chose this hostel because of its good reviews on Hostelworld. All in all, it was okay, and we didn't bother to move, but there were a few areas where we were disappointed. 1. Our first disappointment was the location: it is situated in a neighbourhood, not very close to... More

I came here for about a week. I Loved it. I met people from all over the world. Panama City is beautiful and there's tons to do there. Also, the Hostel is located in an affliuent neighborhood. It's very safe. It is more of a 'house' feeling than a hotel, which is Nice. Plus, it's social too. Don't come here... More

The hostel is quite nice. It has a kitchen and 4 bathrooms. There was also a parking spot right in front of the house. It is quite festive so if you are looking for a quiet hostel, you might want to look elsewhere. There are lockers in the corridor and there were windows in the dorm so it wasn't too... More

We really enjoyed our time at Casa Areka. Pierre was extremely helpful and kind, helping us with lots of useful information and advice for the city. The hostel is extremely clean, welcoming and friendly. A/c worked really well and kitchen was fully equipped. I would definitely stay here again!

Oswald and his staff made us feel really welcome in their hostel. We spent 2 nights here and left late on the 3rd night (to catch a midnight bus) and they were more than happy to let us stay and use the facilities until we left. The hostel was very clean, the bathrooms never felt dirty. The common areas are... More

After a long journey from Caracas to Panama City, this was a really nice place to stay. The owner, Oswald, is friendly and helpful. The dorm bed we had was good and everything was clean. The 24-hours supermarket in front of the hostel is perfect!
