The thing that makes this hostel stand out is the staff, they are so friendly and genuine that you feel at home the moment you walk in.

Love this place. Can't wait to return. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Great location with a pool and a super chill common area. Probably the best bed I've slept on all trip. This place rocks!!!! Also check out Hostel Villa Vento Surf Morrillo. Same perks as the city hostel, but you get the rustic feel of old Panama

Right in the heart of downtown, short walks to restaurants, shops, and the main street to catch a taxi. Hostel itself had a good vibe, friendly stuff, nice people, clean rooms, definitely a place to come back to.
