The owner was so nice with us, explaining the way from Panama city by car. We unfortunately had To cancel the 2 nights and she didn't charge us. Thank you again. We have been in touch very often by email.

The owner Martha is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet! We stayed only one night during Carnaval. I stayed in room #1 which was very nice. The breakfast was excellent with eggs, fruit and tamales wrapped in plantain leaves. Martha also gave us easy to follow directions to her home. And several suggestions on other places to...

We stayed here on our way to Pedasi, it was a very convenient place to explore the area. Martha was very welcoming with iced water to drink and putting on the airconditioning. Our room was small and rather old fashioned and dowdy, but very comfortable. We had a fridge and a door out onto the cool garden/patio. The breakfast was...

Hostel Kimmell is situated approx.10 mins outside Las Tablas, in Santo Domingo, so you have the serenity of a small community away from the main town bustle. Martha makes her guesthouse so relaxed and inviting that this was my third annual stay there. My room was spacious and absolutely spotless. I really have no need now to visit Azuero region...

Martha Kimmell runs a lovely, comfortable and welcoming hostel Kimmell. We stayed 4 nights. Breakfast is tasty, varied and satisfying, with some regional tastes included in the classic breaKfast fare. The rooms are spotless, the patio inviting, the resident Yorkshire terrier very friendly and cute.

When I am in this area of Panama, I always stay at Hostel Kimmell. The rooms are very well appointed with a charming, private garden area for relaxing. The breakfasts are delicious and the owner, Martha is very friendly and knowledgeable about fun things to do in this culturally rich area of the country. A big plus...she speaks perfect English.

Having traveled all of Panama, I can say this place sets a new standard for others to follow. The room was spacious and extremely clean, the facility was well kept and the added bonus of secured parking was great. Marta, hats off to you for bringing up the standard in Panama. See you next Carnival, I will be back.

“If you're a very light sleeper you may want to ask for a room away from the kitchen and as far as possible from the side of the house that faces the neighbor's shop (very, very faint sound of buzzing saws etc from carpentry...he made a lot of the Kimmell's wood doors etc.) In general rural Panama is loud...you'll hear roosters or dogs, sometimes music, pretty much anywhere you go.”
