“Cheap, clean, basic, friendly!”
Reviewed May 8, 2010

My husband and I stayed at Hostal Amador Familiar for 4 nights in early March, and were very happy with our accomodations. It was a great base for touring and birding in Gamboa, the canal, the Amador causeway--we had rented a car, which was great for getting around, once we got accustomed to being lost 50% of the time!

Good basic accomodation: We had an air conditioned room with private bath. Our small but clean and perfectly adequate room was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast is included, and a nice covered outdoor kitchen is available for guests. Free computer access and wireless internet. Free parking. All for just $39.50 a day.

It was helpful to have some Spanish, but staff was accomodating and friendly.

Reviewed September 26, 2009

My husband and I were`pleased with our accommodations, breakfast is included, the property clean. Located in a residential area close to the Causeway, we found taxis inexpensive from the area to just about any part of town. Seems like guests are repeat guests. Watch out for rooms on the Calle Amador side of the building, very noisy. There´s also a rooster and a numbber of neighborhood dogs which,, if not controlled, may wake you in the night. Saturday night is very niosy, the Causeway brings fun lovers through the area. Be aware however, if you´re looking for a friendly staff this is not the place for you, warm and fuzzy they´re not. We didn´t care however after a weeks stay we departed then returned 2 nights later and the male staffer acted as if he´d never seen us before. We speak little to no Spanish and we didn´t expect the staff to be bi lingual, but some semblance of helpfulness would have been nice. The great room, which I expect is for guests, is taken over by the staff and none made an effort to give up their cartoons for guests. We are able to overlook all of the service issues due to the value for the money paid for the product in general. Vanessa is bi lingual and when on property and via email she was helpful. The breakfast attendant is also friendly simply by way of her smile....and that´s all I would ask of any of the rest of the staff yet even that wasn´t there.
