Property Information:

New state of the art outdoor kitchen with ten burner stove etc..
Now! All dorms with orthopedic mattresses! And also featuring new dorm with ac and in-suite bathroom..the only 10 dollar dorm bed with a swimming pool in all of Panama, and we recently added a ping-pong table!

When you are done following all the other tourists to Boquete and Bocas; come spend some time in David. This is real Panama. You will be interacting with Panamanians rather than always being around other tourists. This is a chance to stay at a super cool hostel and explore a real Panamanian city. Dance all night long to Salsa, Merengue, Rock and Reggaeton.. Great restaurants and shopping; and David is cheap!!!! 1/2 the price of Costa Rica. How about a .60 beer in a bar? David is a safe and friendly city too. Get your Latino on in David! New Jungle House in Garden at Bambu Hostel see foto below, built on stilts from native wood and bambu walls with tn roof, sleeps 10 backpackers and overlooks the sparkling pool, only dorm of its kind in Panama! Lonely Planet Recommended International Backpackers Hostel with a Pool and Deluxe tropical gardens in David Panama.

We welcome Backpackers and International Travelers from all corners of the world. David is fun! It has everything that a weary traveler could need to recharge the batteries, fine dining, casinos, movie theaters, inexpensive shopping, nightclubs and discos, festivals, and, within 45 minutes, awesome mountains, Caldera Hot Springs, Playa Barqueta and Costa Rica. Come stay with us at Bambu, relax in the garden, swing on a hammock with a cold beer at the Bambu pool bar, dip in the pool and watch the tropical birds flying in the backyard. We have very few rules here, just come with a good attitude and have fun.

Here is what Lonely Planet wrote about us (Panama Edition Oct. 2010 release date)

'This chill house is an ideal spot for backpackers up for a little rock n roll......the best feature is the sprawling, manicured garden that commands relaxation, with a sparkling swimming pool and the requisite hammocks.'

Early check in (until 7 am) just available for shared dorms, not private rooms

    A relaxing hostel in Panama. I was coming from Costa Rica so David is a great location to make a stop. Dorm room is nice and comfy.They have a swimming pool, a kitchen for cooking, a ping pong table and one dollar beer! The owner Greg and the staff are really nice and welcoming. I stayed my first night at the tree house. It was a nice but you could be awoken by some chickens next to the hostel. Then I switched to their dorm room for two more nights. I would recommend staying in Bambu hostel!
