Dim's is a longstanding hostal in the (usually) tranquil town of Pedasi. It is well located, clean and a good value. For me, the people really made the difference. Kepa & Maristella were absolutely wonderful hosts. We ended up staying 3 nights instead of 1 as originally planned. Kepa cooks up great eggs and the breakfast fruits and juices are... More

We had a very relaxing time at Dims. We stayed in a second floor room, it was clean and comfortable and had a view of the awesome backyard. The couple that runs the place are very friendly and kind. The husband made breakfast every morning and we lounged in one of the six or so hammocks hanging under the expansive... More

This is the fourth time I stay at Dim's Hostel and the reason: you can't get better value for your money in Pedasi. This is a Panamanian-owned place, very authentic and very Panamanian. The management, a couple from Venezuela, is extremely kind, friendly helpful and polite. And the owner, a Panamanian lady, whenever she is around, makes you feel at... More

I just left Dim's yesterday after six nights and they were all delightful. My room was impeccably clean, floor wet-mopped on the third day, sheets changed on day four, trash basket emptied. The staff are more than willing to be helpful (but they don't speak any English except for Mirna, the owner, whom you probably will see only occasionally.) She... More

If your looking to stay in Pedasi on a budget, this place is a good option. Rooms were clean, good location in town ( town is very quiet, go to Smileys for live music and dinner ambiance) The courtyard with a big palapa and hammocks was just what we needed after a long drive from Panama City.

Planned to stay two nights but stayed four. Great place to hang out and relax. Friendly staff and beautiful hostel. Breakfast includes not only toasts and jam but also scrambled eggs and fresh juice. Great value!

We stayed at Dim's for 1 night. Very good service. Cute room, washroom with hot water. Great breakfast. The outdoor space is great. A little expensive for my taste (52USD), but it's the price in Pedasi.

We stayed at Dims for 2 nights. The breakfast was good and the rooms and outdoor balconies were lovely. There are some good restaurants in the area and a super market right across the street. The beach is a short drive away and you are able to catch a boat to the nearby iguana island.
