The dorm rooms were fine, facilities are good (including a nice pool) and prices are reasonable. The staff was friendly and the other guests were nice. The place is situated in a good neighbourhood, close to the financial center of the city, but the casco viejo and other sights are a bit out of the way.

The hostel is located in the center of the city and a safe area to walk. Arriving to the hostel was a sensation that walking at home and staff make us feel comfortable, the social area with the swimming pool is great to relax with friends and have few drinks. The guy in the reception of the hostel will provide... More

I stayed at all 3 Hostel Villa Vento Surf's in Panama and would recommend them to anyone visiting Panama. The staff are friendly, accomodating and there is always a friendly atmosphere. Everyone wants to get to know each other and the facilities are excellent. Rooms are clean, bathrooms are great and the kitchen facilities are good.

Stayed at all three of these hostels and had a great time at them all. Clean, social, and always good crew around. Morillo has a semi-professional guitar player nearby so even better value. Would recommend them all
