City version of this hostel is as great as are the two others too. Hostel is very conveniently located and has the same good vibe as the others have. Breakfast was a big plus! Everything is tidy and hostel is very chill.

Villa vento surf is one of the best hostels I visited in Central America. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. The outdoor area with the pool is perfect for the hot city and the neighborhood is one of the best in Panama City in my opinion because you have good restaurants and supermarkets and connection to buses...

I stayed here years ago and was extremely satisfied with the staff and facilities. And I was not disappointed upon my return. New furniture, more art same great vibe. The cafe out front is a awesome addition and the pool area has some nice upgrades. This place is kept very clean and the staff are excellent. Great value.

Everything was perfect — and that is a rare occurrence! No fuss, great, friendly staff, and a very welcome pool. Close to Balboa Av, several bus lines and the metro. I ended up going to San Blas thanks to a suggestion of a member of the staff, and could not be more thankful for that.

This is a really good hostel. The staff are great, its always nice when they remember your name. They were also great at suggesting ways that I could see the city as cheap as possible and happily answered the hundreds of questions I had. Its a bit of a walk from the hostel to the old town (or you can... More
