We came to this place and got a room which was decent but not like in the pictures on the website. The room was however ok and the hotel itself was quite cozy and backpacker-ish. The bad part was that we had a reservation later on in Panama for five days on this hotel but then they said the hotel... More

The hostel has good location, is always clean, the bathrooms are good and the price is economic. Does not have any games or anything that encourages interaction between guests. It is safe, the service is good and the kitchen is also well equipped.

This was a last minute decision to arrive in Panama City that day, we found this place in our guidebook and stayed one night before moving to friends. The hostel is huge! And with this comes the noise that sneaks into the room through the open part above the room doors. But this really was the only downside - other... More

Reading all the reviews for Panamericana marked as terrible and poor - I was very angry at myself that I didnt check it before. Looks like that when you reserve the room and get the confirmation - its ok for Panamericana to tell you that there are no rooms which you requested. Instead of room with private bathroom I ended...

I really enjoyed my stay at Panamericana. Great location and great rooms, except that it can be a bit noisy in the night, because the rooms are 'open' to the hallway. The breakfast only includes white bread, jelly, peanutbutter, bananas and the/coffee.

Enjoyed my stay at the Panamericana Hostel. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful, the WIFI works (except that you need a new password like every other day), there is hot water in the shower. Most importantly the location is ideal as it is near to food and entertainment. My biggest challenge was the stairs.

There is much better hostels around the same area. Terrible WIFI, the staff were not helpful to any of us and the rooms are very hot. There is only 2 bathrooms per floor and you end up lining up to shower or use the toilet. This was bad even for central america. There is free breakfast though! hahaha

Nice and cool place to stay in the heart of the City, Amazing location, rooms are very basic, but safe and clean. Shared bath was okay as well. Some stuff are helpful, some are not - like always and everywhere. Breakfast basic, but for this price is more than okay. Wifi slow. Very loud as well, you can hear ANYTHING... More

Panama City is slightly limited in hostels for back packers. After driving around for a long time, I finally came across ''Panamericana Hostel'', a very cool place to stay. Most rooms are spacious, some with bathroom attached and some without. Two roof tops with a view of the old town and the Pacific Oean. The hostel is well taken care... More
