This youth-hostel type B&B in the middle of Panamá city is suitable for backpackers and families alike. While the room we had was rather small it was totally sufficient for our purpose: very clean and cozy. Towels formed into swan shape. The breakfast buffet a delight below Mango trees with delicous Mangos. Very, very nice personel! Affordable to everyone.

Got my own room at a hostel for $35 usd per night. It was my first time traveling alone so I really didnt want to put up with noisy 21 year olds. I wasn't able to enjoy it, but breakfast is served every morning which is included. My room had an AC which was great when I came in from... More

Nice quiet place to stay in a crazy town. It not located close to the attractions but they are a short and cheap cab ride away. We stayed in the triple room. There was really great AC, wonderful breakfast and a cute little backyard. The staff were really nice and helpful.

Panama House is a very nice hostel in Panama City - central, with a lovely garden qhere you can relax! Breakfast was good and the internet-connection the best we had in 2 weeks of Panama (very good when you have to look things up). The hosts were so nice and helpful - that was the best part, just how it... More

We stayed two times at Panama House. In the beginning and the end of our stay. The staff is very very friendly and heartwarming. Even with language difficulties every question was answered (via google translate) ;) the kitchen is very well equipped. We had private rooms one with shared bathroom and one ensuite. The rooms were simple but enough. The... More

A great budget option in Panama City. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful and the dormitories and communal areas are spotlessly clean. I met lots of friendly travellers during my stay at Panama House, though this is not a party hostel and it is fairly quiet by around 10pm which suited me well. Please be aware that there... More

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of our Panama adventure, and one night at the very end. Every single person we dealt with was extremely helpful, with a special shoutout to one of the night clerks, Eisenhower, who helped us utterly graciously with a couple of minor issues. When we left with our big suitcases, one of the... More

The people here were so friendly and because the owners live here with their little girl and baby on the way, it felt very homey. The place is clean and the breakfast is pretty good. The rooms are pretty standard, but definitely sufficient. The clientele was also diverse- you saw a range of different nationalities of all ages.

It wasn't an ideal trip in Panama but Panama House B&B were amazing. We had travelled across on a sail boat from Cartagena for five nights and just wanted to relax and see some of Panama City. However my wife was exceptionally ill and we needed help. They called the paramedics for us and gave information on everything. I am... More
