Me and my friend stayed two nights at this hostel! It's the best place you can stay in the old town of Panama City (casco viejo). The hostel is so nice, very clean and as it is also a hotel the common area is very cozy. The dorms have very comfortable beds and every bed has its own plug-ins and... More

This hotel was beautiful. The lush gardens were so peaceful and stunning. The staff was extremely accommodating, helpful and kind. One of the most amazing parts of the hotel was breakfast. Not only was the food delicious but watching the tiny colorful birds eating breakfast beside us was a true Panama experience. I would recommend this place to anyone who... More

Stayed here for a couple nights before heading to San Blas. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The rooms clean and comfortable. Even it things weren't working, the front house staff did everything they could do try and help. Would recommend staying here.

Great hostel/ hotel. Managed to fit us in at short notice after leaving the hell hole of the White Lion hostel. Had a great room overlooking the street- very quiet at night, we were asleep by 9m (as we had a 4am collection). We met the owner who told us about his experience renovating the place from the ground up-... More

The Magnolia Inn is a very good bet for a nice hostel (not a party hostel) in Casco Viejo! Dorms are very good, the TV area and the kitchen are great! and prices very affrdable. Though, if you wish a private room I would recommend to go eleswhere as they are very expensive and almost underground ... could be good... More

This hotel is excellent. The hosts were fantastic! The location is in the old town of Panama and within 3 blocks of the Presidential Palace, the bay and an outdoor market. There were at least 100 restaurants within a few blocks so you did not need a taxi or bus. The area is safely guarded by police and is VERY... More

Spent a week plus in one of the Penthouse rooms. Three floor walk up but spacious with wrap around views of the Casco, the water and the new City skyline. Excellent bed and sitting space, a/c and fan, small kitchen and shower facilities plus all the amenities of the hostel downstairs, A great location for walking through the Casco (... More

Access to a full kitchen and seating area AND a private a/c room was the best combo ever. We did not stay in the penthouse due to possible loud music from the nearby rooftop bar. The transfer from Tocumen airport was wonderful. When we left HolaTravel took us door-to-door from the Magnolia Inn to Boquete. for the same cost as... More
