A brilliant hostel. We stayed for a week and it had a great location in Panama City, close to shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife, and was the perfect base for trips further afield - the staff offered excellent advice on and were extremely helpful in arranging trips to a local indigenous village and to the San Blas islands. The advice also extended to what else we should see in Panama and Central America after we left the hostel, and helped set us up for the rest of our trip. The hostel is also a lot of fun, with a great balcony for chilling on, drinking and meeting other travellers. The owners are good fun too - make sure you play a round of drinking Golf with Ryan! It might be worth paying an extra dollar or two to upgrade to a private air-conditioned room as the dorm did get quite hot, but other than that this hostel is excellent and comes highly recommended. I will definitely stay here next time I visit Panama City!
