“Favorite hostel in all Central America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

This place has been so good we were only going to stay two nights now we are staying 2 weeks... It's sooo clean and modern it doesn't feel like all of the other dirty backpacker hostels in Central America... It is in an awesome location right In between two massive malls and a short walk from the ocean... Plenty of restraunts banks and super markets literally 200 meters away...
Great crowd of people too, very social place, but not a loud party hostel... In my eyes the perfect medium!

Los Mostros you guys are awesome!! Couldn't praise high enough!

Surely the best hostel in Panama, relaxing ambiance, good breakfast included, good area, perfect internet, comfy beds.

The staff is really helpful and the situation is very handy, it's right nearby the main mall, and from the nightlife area as well.

The hostel has a real client service which is not the case of many hostels in Latam.

If I go back to Panama I will go there.

Swimming pool could have been cleaner.

They have done a great job turning a villa into a hostel. Nice common spaces, pool in the garden and very clean. I ended staying up till 4am sipping beers with my room mates and one of the owners. They only have dorms but they were fine with a/c and lockers.

Great staff, great location, great house, great facilities, great breakfast! Only downsides are weak internet and in my 4 days there I didn't find it particularly sociable, but this was probably due to the time of year (argentinian school holidays) so the place was overrun with large groups of them who tend to stick together. The place is like a 1960's playboy mansion with great facilities, however one or two of the bathrooms could do with a bit of updating as it doesn't look like they've been touched since the house was built! All things said I would definitely stay here again...

Room Tip: The 6bed dorms are quieter but all have a/c so you should sleep fine. Nice big closets for storage...

We stayed at Los Mostros for 4 nights over new years eve, it was a fantastic time and made better by the helpful and attentive staff. They put on a brilliant feast for new years eve and made everyone feel welcome, even with a slight language barrier.

The rooms were clean and came with spacious bathrooms for each of the 6 dorm rooms, with clean linen and and air conditioning.

Very cheap laundry service, which was prompt and convenient, also the kitchen has everything you need and is kept clean and tidy.

Big thanks to everyone for making this a great start to 2013.
