Don't go to Farallon - it's terrible. If you do go to Farallon, don't stay in a hostel, stay in one of the resorts. If you insist on going to Farallon and staying at a hostel, then Acuarela is a good choice. Acuarela is clean and pleasant, and the owner/staffer was extremely friendly and helpful. Our private room was large,... More

the hostel owner was so inviting, friendly, kind and hospitable. The hostel was clean, colorful and had lots of space to hang out right across the street from the beach. But, there are a few things to be aware of. This hostel despite being beautiful is in the middle of imminent danger. A walk down to the beach ended with... More

We stayed here for a night on our roadtrip of Panama. It's great, we payed $50 for the private room, which is a great deal on this beach. It's right across the street from the beach, so you're only 20 meters from water. The owners are friendly, the room is clean, and the wifi works well. There are three places... More

Miguel and Maria are the perfect hosts. They are spot on and caring of the property they manage and their guests. I would certainly visit them again. Breakfast is simple (at $4 dollars) but good and fresh. Your are treated like family and friend. Lunch is also fresh. Fish caught daily can't get any better.

I stayed for four days in the worst Hostal i have ever been to. Dirty,unfriendly and full of insects. The beach is full of dodgy looking characters and the couple running the place were just money grabbers..

Maria and Miguel made us feel like at home. They take super care of their kitchen (used by them as well) and the whole hotel! Everything is very clean and you feel very invited to hang out in the garden area or the sofa inside. Kristin

The couple who own and run this Hostel are "FANTASTIC". They genuinly care about your needs and comfort. All areas are kept really clean. I was happier staying there than a Hotel in Panama that cost 4 X's more. If all you want is a nice, clean, comfortable and inexpensive place to stay very close to the beach;;;Acurela is the... More

The hostel is probably the only one around Farallon, at least the only one we found. It has three rooms with one of then being a dorm. They are all aircon and wifi. The hostel is located 10m from the beach. The possible breakfast is simple but good. The shared bathroom and the hostel in general is very clean and... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights and the couple running the hostel, Maria and Miguel could not have made me feel more welcome. It is a small and cosy hostel, incredibly clean and with modern bathrooms (hot water) and a good kitchen. It's only a 10 second walk to the beach (if that) and I thought it was... More

We are two friends and spent two nights at Acuarela Hostel. We were absolutely happy with having chosen this hostel for the weekend. It's located 1,5 hours away from Panama City and you can get there very easily by bus. There's a nice beach right around the corner and the beautiful Santa Clara beach is just a 10 minute ride...
