My boyfriend and I arrived in Panama City and needed to spend one night before traveling to the San Blas islands the next day. We told the owner we would be arriving at 11pm, and because of minor flight delays we ended up arriving at 11:30pm (and we didn't carry a cell phone). The owner left. He also took with him the keys to the private room we had reserved. Luckily I speak Spanish and could negotiate with some other residents for us to stay in the 8 bunk bed room for the same price.
The room was TERRIBLE. I have traveled and stayed in many hostels, but all of them were way better that this place. There was no running water in this building, and the toilets didn't work. You could go outside to the hose for water. Also, the top bunk that we were given was directly below an A/C unit that blew freezing cold air on our feet the entire night. I was shivering. Especially since there was only an itchy thin sheet to cover us.
Summary: HORRIBLE. DON'T GO HERE.
