I loved this hostel! It might not have a party vibe to it, but it's a chill place for travelers who are looking to meet people within a relaxed atmosphere. The value is also worth more than the what you pay because the beds are comfy, there's AC in the rooms, and the bathrooms are super clean! Highly recommended.

This is my second stay at Magnolia Inn and it won't be the last. The location is excellent and the staff is very helpful. Highly recommend the penthouse rooms, although the private rooms are equally as nice, albeit smaller.

I stayed here for one night. All went smoothly. I liked the place. Only one negative point, I got up in the morning with my body invaded by mites. This didn't happen to me even when I slept in the jungle :-) Beside that, all is good. I will definitely go back there if I return to Panama, but with... More

Excellent location in casco viejo. We stayed one night at the hotel in one of the penthouse rooms. The room was lovely, very clean and the team is very friendly. There was some music that could be heard from the nearby roof terrace bar Tantalo. Otherwise quiet.

We stayed between Christmas and New Years in a private room.. Magnolia inn is well located in Casco Viejo. It felt secure, staff is friendly and helpful, room was clean, beds OK. Excellent value. A full kitchen and dining area is available. The only downside was very loud music from a nearby rooftop bar until 2 am every night- hardly... More

We opted to stay in one of the private rooms here which is on the top floor of the old house. It cost a small fortune ($150 per night) but it was our anniversary so we decided to splurge. The room was amazing - very spacious, wonderful shower and a huge king sized bed. The owner and staff were very... More

As you are always on the move around Panama City Magnolia Inn offered me the perfect safe harbour. Thanks to the friendly staff and impressive location. The kitchen is well equiped and all info about tours is available. I came in sick and left a better man!

I visited the Magnolia Inn over Christmas with my three adult children in two penthouse rooms. Fantastic view, well appointed rooms and an excellent location. The shared kitchen was clean and well stocked. Staff was helpful and although I was initially overcharged this was rectified immediately. Airport pickup was efficient. A great experience!

Loved this place! Location is great, building is beautiful, staff is beyond amazing. We stayed five nights in the hotel (not the hostel). Rooms were large and comfortable with amazing views of the city skyline. Casco Vieja is a fascinating neighborhood. I recommend highly Panama and Casco Vieja as a destination and Magnolia Inn as an accommodation.
