Stayed here for our first night in Panama on our way to Bocas del Toro. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, had a lot of great suggestions for places to go to eat and things to see in the area. The location is perfect, in the heart of Casco Veijo, plenty in the immediate area to see and do,... More

We stayed at Magnolia for 4 nights and loved our time here. Staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and our sheets were changed twice while we were there. The cleaning staff is very friendly as well and are constantly deep cleaning the bathroom, living areas and kitchens. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need... More

We stayed here with my family and rented a six person dorm for five people so we could have it private. The common areas were spacious and clean. The bathrooms were also very good compared to most hostel bathrooms. The dorm room itself was very hot and smelly. We couldn't get the room any colder and it was too noisy... More

We had our room at hospedaje another hostel given away and we had to find other accomodation. We tried magnolia inn first but the only room they had left was $77 a night and we were on a tight budget. They said to leave our bags In their storage room and then marked on a map all the other hostels... More

I stayed at this hostel upon reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor as well as other hostel booking websites and could not agree more with the great reviews. My booking was completed two days prior to my arrival; immediately after confirming the booking, I was contacted personally by email to confirm my arrival information and assistance in booking airport transportation.

I recently vacationed in Panama with some friends and we opted to stay at the Magnolia Inn as it looked like it had good reviews and a good location. I'M happy to say that we were not disappointed. We stayed in one of the en-suite rooms which was lovely, clean, and comfortable. The front staff was very welcoming and helpful... More

We rented a car when we landed and attempted to drive to the hostel. Lots of one way roads, Fri night activity, challenging to find! We made it - police were super helpful and front desk helped us park. We also stayed our last night in Panama but took a taxi there - much easier!!! Hostel location is terrific -... More

The room was clean and well cared for, the price just seemed a bit high. Probably you're paying for the location, which is amazing! And there aren't many options in mid-range in Casco, so we'd still recommend it.

I really enjoyed my stay here in the dorm. It's super clean, and when they say the kitchen is fully equipped, they're not lying. Finally a hostel kitchen I was more than comfortable using. There's an area where you can lounge around. The location is great, and the owners super friendly and honest. My bed was comfortable, clean, and they... More
