We loved the Magnolia Inn. The decor lovely and smart while being comfortable. The mix of full service rooms with a luxury hostel makes for a wonderful mix of people. And the location is at such a cultural cross-roads. One must experience firsthand the extreme make over going on in Casco Viejo and that our hosts were jumping in to be a voice amongst the many constituencies who have a hand in the future of Panama City's most historic section.

My friend and I stayed here on a recent trip to Panama. It was ideally located in Casco Viejo and also reasonably priced. We rented one of the private rooms and it was worth the money. Clean, comfortable beds, nice bathroom, and the owners were very friendly.

My friend and I stayed here during our trip to Panama in April . We loved the owners; they were so helpful, friendly, and welcoming. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the bathrooms had separate showers and toilette stalls which were all clean and well kept. The hostel is located in Casco Viejo in a relatively busy part of town, but is located on a quieter street just steps away from restaurants, bars, the fish market, etc. The other guests at Magnolia were very friendly and happy to share stories and tips from their travels. I would highly recommend this hostel to any traveler who finds themselves in Panama City.

After a month of traveling in Panama we returned to Panama City for the last few days of our trip. We were planning to stay in another hostel in Casco Viejo but since it was full they recommended Magnolia. It turned out to be a real gem; the best hostel that we stayed in during our travels. The rooms were comfortable, bathrooms clean, and the shared cooking/eating facilities were first rate. One bit of advice to travelers: don't let the location throw you off. Some of the streets around Magnolia are a bit grungy but the inside of the hostel is fantastic and with all the improvements being made to the area, it won't be long before Magnolia is surrounded by beautiful restored buildings.
