I spent a week here with my family, and we liked the location. The breakfast was mediocre (DIY pancakes) and the staff were friendly. There were a few inconveniences while we were there: the toilets didn't work one day, the internet almost never worked, the one desktop stopped working and wasn't repaired or replaced. In addition, the staff were nice,... More

I first went to the Villa Vento Playa Morillo location then stayed at the Villa Vento in the city afterwards. If I'd known about the location in Santa Catalina when I was there I would have stayed there as well. Both places were well priced and clean and Daniel (owner) was a great host both in and out of the... More

Definitely the best hostel in panama city, very clean, great atmosphere and very nice staff. One of those places that you could easily stay for months at. The hostel is conveniently located in marbella which is a very safe and nice part of the city. Would come back anytime, breakfast is good and the beer is only $1.

Villa Vento is a laid-back hostel in the neigh borough of Marbella, close to the banks area, the balboa avenue and the night spots in Uruguay Street. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, the AC is working. Wifi might default some times and the breakfast is poor. However it’s a nice place to meet people and... More

Panama City is a great place to start or end your South America trip. I highly recommend staying here. Great staff. Positive vibes. And a lot of cool travellers. I would suggest staying in the four person room. I found that I had a comfortable and quiet sleep. Thanks Daniel for the hospitality!

Really nice hostel! Friendly staff, great location, good vibe, clean and nice pool! The little coffee shop/bar next to it is also super nice! Breakfast is included and most of the city's interest points are accessible by walk. Definitely would recommend this hostel for a comfortable, affordable, fun stay in Panama City!

We first stayed in a very popular hostel in the city but decided to switch after a few days to see a different part of the city. The staff here is amazing at making you feel welcome and relaxed and we instantly fell in love with the socialable and chilled out atmosphere (and pool!). The staff was always ready to... More
