Good luck finding another spot that offers you a swimming pool and 1 dollar-beers. The staff is very helpful with everything from transportation to day trips. Decent beds, some rooms tend to get a bit hot during the night. Sturdy lockers, clean showers.. I highly recommend this place if you're staying a couple of days in Panama City.

The hostel is situated in a safe area, close to ATM's, Burger Kind etc. and by bus it is easy to reach the nice... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night (we had originally booked 2 nights). The hostel was clean and safe with a nice relaxing feel. Some of the facilities (bathrooms and kitchen in particular) require upgrading as they were a little past their 'sell-by' date ! The hostel was a little difficult to find but is located in a... More

This is a lovely hostel, all the staff are lovely and very knowledgeable. One night the hostel was full but a friend was unsure if she'll make her bus, so they said they'd put up an air mattress for her for cheap if she needed it. Lots of hang out space, comfy couches, lounge chairs outside. Big enough kitchen that's... More

We had a great experience at Vento Surf! Daniel (the owner) was very friendly and helpful. He made us feel right at home in a brand new country and gave us awesome advice for future travels. The rooms were clean and roomy. The common room area is a great place to chill out and cool off in the pool!
