Stayed 3 nights at $54 a night.
The frustrations first...taxi from airport in town ($15) could not find the property based on the Tripadvisor address. They do however know Lung Fung Chinese Restaurant which is a few blocks down the hill (and has great food). The taxi drive also rang the above number without success. There is also a service station next to the restaurant which sells water and snacks etc. Arrived at 10am (noting that check in is not till 3pm). No one answered the bell for 30 minutes and as it is a residential area and not having my bearings it was a hassle to find somewhere to kill a few hours (Mcdonalds with WIFI turn right at the service station). Eventually got a response at 2pm.
It depends what you want to do in PC but realistically given the location you will need to take taxis.
Taxi to the canal off the street was $5 in the AM but when I got out there the first boat was not coming thru till 1.30pm so not sure if you can check before you go. Taxi back to old city was $12 so paid $29 and took a very worthwhile 2 hour round trip on the red Hop on Hop Off bus. Hassle getting taxi back to hotel in the PM..tightly controlled and they wanted $20...eventually got one who just pulled up for $10. Taxi from hostel to old down was $6 (crazy choked traffic) and from hostel to international airport was $30 in the rain and took 90 minutes again due to traffic.
I don't speak Spanish and whilst the non English speaking staff were extremely helpful that was a challenge..the lady who speaks English popped in on 2 of the nights..I think when they had check ins. Having said that can't fault the service.
The room was brilliant...air con, fan, tv, hot water, spacious...you could long term stay in comfort. Downstairs area with couch and computer to use. Wifi throughout and worked well. Breakfast area out the back was also a nice place to relax. If you want to be in the city then think twice about this location...but safe, close enough and very quiet. Definitely deserves it's quality rating but I think next time I would try staying in the old city...against the traffic which can be an issue during the week.

B&B Los Angeles was our first encounter with PANAMA & we could'nt ask for a softer landing...
from the moment we were picked up from the airport by Jose ,and also upon meeting Zulay at the guesthouse, we felt welcome and very comfortable.

The staff made all the efforts to make our stay as pleasing as possible, giving tips & advices and making us feel at home.

The room was clean, spacious and had a great shower with hot water (which is not something you are not sure to find in all the hostels in PC).

The area is safe and quiet, with some resturants, pharmacies and stores only 5-10 minutes by foot (if you like pizza, try "Pizzeria Italia" 2 blocks up from the B&B). local transportation, busses & "diablos rojos", can be found on the main street, 3 minutes by foot.

We left on a rainy day and my girlfriend slipped near the gate of the guesthouse (no harm done). Zulay was'nt around at that time, but on the following day she sent us an email, asking how my girlfriend is doing and telling us not to hesitate should we need any help with our trip in the rest of Panama - something we felt was really nice and kind.

Zulay, Jose...again, thank you ver much.
We Enjoyed staying with you,

For us that enjoy/expect/desire/want/a place that listens to us and aims to satisfy us (( of course we are Americans.....and spoilied..... this is the place.))

NO.....this is not the Rizt ((Americans will undersand this.....but ..".It doesn't get any better tha this"
