Baru Lodge is a good property with nice rooms. However, there was one young male staff member who worked the front desk. He was BY FAR the most useless person I've ever dealt with in any hostel, and did absolutely NOTHING to help us with our stay and/or activities. when we needed help with anything, all he did was just sit there and facebook. I've had bad experiences, but I will never recommend this place to any friends or anyone traveling to Panama purely based on the "hospitality" of Baru.

Excellent Lodge, great and helpful stuff. Beautiful garden for breakfast. Very clean rooms and nothing to miss. Went there twice while in Panama. Liked it that it is central but not right in the buzzing streets.
