A friend and I stayed here for three nights at the beginning and one night at the beginning of our week trip to Panama. The staff at the hostel are great and very accommodating! However, our flight got in late and even though we provided flight information for Karloz, he did not wait for us and due to construction and it being a Saturday night with people everywhere, our taxi driver got lost. It took at least a half hour of walking around the city with our taxi driver, who was amazing, to finally find the hostel. Thus, I would recommend being sure to use Karloz to get there or that your taxi driver knows for sure where he is going. The location is great for getting around to various places. A major downfall is that there is so much construction going on in Casco Viejo right now and it was very noisy throughout the day, but the hostel is definitely not at fault for that. We stayed in a private hostel room, each with our own bunks. The room was great, but ours was located right by the stairs, which meant we frequently had people standing outside our room at all hours (including pretty late at night) talking. I would avoid room 3 if possible. The bathrooms were very clean, which was awesome! At the end of our trip, Karloz took us to the airport and even though his car unexpectedly got a flat tire, he was very calm and nice, and had it changed within ten minutes and apologized profusely, even though we knew it wasn't his fault. Overall, I would recommend staying here, as it was great for the price and area.
