This hostel is pretty standard as far as hostels go. Everything you expect and more is there: free wi-fi, free breakfast, tons of movies on the television, standard beds, even a pool. The vibe is pretty standard too I think, its super chill and laid back. The people here, both the staff and other travelers were really great. I was travelling alone and there was never a night that I was by myself, I always had someone offering to include me in their dinner plans or go to a bar. This is a great base from which to see Panama City.
The only drawback is the location. The neighborhood is not dangerous at all but it is also not clean or nice. Its just a very trashy, kind of run down piece of the city. It is also at least a 20 minute walk from anything of interest. Though everything you need to get by, such as restaurants, convenience stores, banks, bus stops, etc is within a 3 minute walk from the hostel door.
