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

I was just in Panama City for the first time for 2 weeks and before going I did a quick search of some hostels in the area with the idea that Id only be staying for a few days before moving on. Well, I wound up spending the majority of my trip at Villa Vento. They make you feel at... More

Really good hostel! Showed up without a reservation and they had room for me and a friend to stay for 4 nights. They had AC from 9pm to 9am in the dorms which was great. We had originally thought the price was 13$ a night but because we were in high season it was actually 16$. They have a pool... More

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our Central American trip. Stayed in the dorms which were nice. 16 dollars a night with free pancake breakfast that you make yourself. Dorms had AC from 9pm to 9am which was amazing cause it was very humid in Panama City when we were there. Hostel is right downtown close to... More
