Martha’s house is fantastic! The breakfast is wonderful every morning and it’s always different! Fresh fruits, vegetables, yogurt, bread with jams, fresh fruit juice, homemade Panamanian foods, everything you can imagine and more! I definitely recommend staying at Martha’s if you’re in the area-short drive to Pedasi and Venao beaches, 7’ bus ride to Las Tablas, and a cute small town feeling. Martha can give you advice on anything you want to know about Panama in Spanish or English!!

Whether you have never visited Panama or the country side of Panama, and you wish to plan an "authentic" trip of the Azuero area of Panama, with lots of touristy choices that are unique to this country (folkloric artisans, nearby island or beach trips, carnival celebrations, etc.), a stop at Santo Domingo (right next to the bigger town Las Tablas) and a stay in this charming hostel might just be the thing to do. Martha Kimmell, the owner, is a seasoned traveller herself, so she knows how to make travellers feel at ease in her hostel. Rooms decorated and finished with a touch of boutique-style quality, you will find everything you need to enjoy a pleasant stay. But the best part is breakfast, Martha herself prepares it and it is better than what other much more expensive hotels offer. Highly recommended!!

I want to thank Martha for her hospitality and for making my stay in Los Santos a great one. Great breakfast, soft bed, warm shower and fast wifi. Oh and I really enjoyed relaxing on the hammock in the outdoor area. I hope to visit again soon :)

A very comfortable experience with a great breakfast and Owner has a lot of knowledge of the area and activities to do with local tourism. There are a few beaching within 5 miles of the hostel and places to eat in Las Tablas only a few miles away.

Santo Domingo lies quietly on the outskirts of Las Tablas. It was the perfect place for us to savour Panamenian way of life and scout the area for next winter's extended stay in the country. The beautifully appointed house, the warm and friendly greeting, the delicious Panamenian food, everything was perfect. Best of all, chickens pecking next to the verandah, cats lying in the shade, trucks peddling fresh shrimp and vegetables driving by. The owner, Marta, kept us informed on all that we needed to know, not only about the area but all of Panama; even on the best way to pay our speeding ticket! She is a lawyer and graduate in tourism management.
