Stayed here for two nights. Would have liked to stay longer. Good location in a nice neighborhood. Nice and clean. Good equipped kitchen. Nice staff. The owner, Daniel, even went with me to the police station when my camera got stolen. Will definetly stay here again when I come back to Panama. :) - Silje

It's a great oasis in the middle of Panama city. The place is great with a nice pool and a lot of options to chill. Daniel the owner is a great host and extremely helpful. The location is great with a mall near by where you can get anything and therefore makes a great hub to visit the rest of... More

The pool is by far the best feature of this hostel. When it's deathly hot in Panama City you can escape to the poolside. Have one dollar balboa and enjoy the company. However the first night I was there most people were too preoccupied with their phones to chat. However the second two got more and more social. It's far... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and overall the hostel is very good. The location is in a safe area close to restaurants, supermarkets and banks. We stayed in the dorm closest to the garden which had 7 beds. I think this is the best dorm for the big dorms as the other ones you have a connecting room meaning... More

Hostel was great. A little pricey at $16/night but the staff were phenomenonal - so helpful! The rooms were clean, as was the communal area. I wasn't in the pool but it looked lovely as did the pool area out the back.

The hostel is in a great central location (although if you can I would stay in the old town) and is a nice small hostel with a great friendly, social vibe. They have an included breakfast of pancakes, which I didn't actually try because I'm getting a bit sick of hostel pancakes. The beds were comfy, although the pillows could... More

This hostel was very cool! Great vibes from start to finish! I only booked this hostel as a layover as I was returning home after a couple of weeks of travel and I loved this place. The hostel was near a bar (not that it needed one, as there was a honestly policy for 1$ beers) and fast food outlets... More
