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 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.

“7 bed dorm room is the best choice since it's a lot more private than the 8 bed dorm (connected to yet another dorm. So: loud)”

“It's still a hostel. Pay extra for the private if you want that. Pick a bunk nearest the A/C in the dorm.”
