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.

Hi Ivy Yu, we are truly sorry for you experience, unfortunately I can not be at the Lodge every day and sometimes is really hard to find good service people in Panama, we already made some changes in our staff members during weekend time, sorry again for the inconveniences. Best regards Erwin Goerke
