The hostel is close to food eateries and the financial district, ATM and staff were friendly, pancake breakfast was good , rooms and hostel were clean, only one bathroom per room which could be a challenge if full
The common areas were clean. The price is reasonable for what you get. A good location to access different parts of Panama City. Plenty of restaurants and stores closeby. I think the number of bathrooms is not enough for the number of beds they have, but I traveled during COVID, when they had low number of guests; therefore, I did not have any problems using the bathroom. Recommendation: hand wash/soap should be available in all toilet rooms. The staff was always friendly and available; they were always smiling and willing to answer any questions I had. Beds are comfortable. The rooms are air-conditioned. I would stay here again.
The best hostel I've have ever been at in central america. Everything is clean, the beds comfortable and good breakfast.Alex helped me a lot planning my trip to Guatemala which was very nice, he knows alot by the way. Thank you so much Machico! I will be back one day.

SO #1The pool is always clean The staff is very cleanly and clean and friendly and is all ways willing to help #2Made beds every day Kitchen is very clean. #3Plenty of bathrooms that are in very good condition pool showers work with hot water as well as bath room showers. #4 fun and exciting bike Tour rides of Panama City. And the tour guide is Such an amazing beautiful person as well! such a fun time! #5 They also offer an island tour that you can book with them While you are at the hostel!! And will bring you back to Panama or take you to Cartagena Columbia. #6However 🙌🏼🚩🚨 DO NOT BOOK WITH BLUE SAILING! OR GIT ON A BOAT CALLED THE SOVEREIGN GRACE THAT IS A VERY VERY BAD BOAT TO BE ON!🚩🚨But how ever this is a Amazing hostel to be at. It’s in great condition and It has air conditioning all so in a great location in the city it has Marble tile floors and Great restaurants right nearby which is only 40 seconds away ! so if you’re passing by or looking on line it’s got a awesome chill vibe or if you are simply looking for a good Place to call home sweet home for a little while this is definitely the place!!!…
My stay at El Machico was a very Enjoyable one! A very good included Breakfast, Pool and a very helpful reception desk for booking day trips/tours to San Blas etc. Could not recommend them more highly!
