We stayed here in July several nights as a family of 4 in the 2Q rooms on the second floor. Location can't be beat, good price, super friendly staff! The owners are great, if they are not there Joeri is, or you will find another European traveller behind the reception desk. Also the night guard is super friendly. Casco Viejo... More

The Hotel is also a hostel, which was very convenient. Being a Chaperone of 20 students it was very economical for immersion and classes. We felt at home when it was time to relax even though it was such a large group. During meal time, there was also enough space to eat comfortably and stretch an arm. A challenge was... More

Great place to stay, located in heart of the beautiful old part of Panama called Casco Viejo. We had a nice family room ensuite with TV and air con and fridge. All we could ask for! Communal kitchen and sitting area are nice. Whole building has an old and well used feel, but doesn't detract from experience.

Staying at Magnolia Inn was like staying at a hotel. White marble tiles, tiled showers and washrooms, and nice finishings everywhere. They have A/C dorm rooms available or the penthouse dorms with private fans and lots of windows. Hot and Cold water showers available which was nice at night and in the morning. A little expensive considering there is no... More

Nice, clean rooms, with confortable beds. Good atmosphere. The location is nice (Casco Viejo), but it has a problem: to get out of Casco Viejo you need to take a cab, as there are no buses, and the are is quite dangerous. Staff is not as friendly and flexible as you would expect in a HoStel.

We stayed at their penthouse for two nights. The inn location is right at the center of the old town. The staff members are friendly and helpful. The suite has a good view. The only problem is that it's next to a night club. The loud music and noise lasted way past midnight. If you don't like noise at night,... More

Stayed here after unsuccessfully trying to stay at Luna Castle and them recommended Magnolia Inn. Fortunately managed to stay in the 12 bed dorms with a private fan, for the pricey $15!! Rather pricey considering it was not an ensuite, it had no aircon and no breakfast! However staff were very friendly and helpful and the hostel was in a... More

Hi Mike, Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We are both a hostel and a hotel. We have both A/C and non A/C dorm rooms for both $15, which is, believe it or not, slightly cheaper then a lot of other hostels in the city. Our private rooms are all hotel hotel... More

I stayed at the Magnolia Inn from 7/2/15 through 7/5/15, stayed in Room 2A with my brother and mom. I definitely made the right decision in choosing the Magnolia Inn! Check-in/out process: They already had my information when I arrived and it was a very seamless process. Check-out was just as easy. Even before I arrived, everyone from the owners... More

Magnolia Inn was a gem of place to stay in the old town of Casco Viejo. It is close to everything and being so near the Presidential palace/residence, it is secure, lively, and overall safe to walk around in at any time of day or night. A lot of great places to see and visit within a short walking distance--many... More
