The hosts were outstanding. The breakfast in the morning was the best that I have had since I´ve been in Panama. Great place to stay that is close to the airport. I would recommend this hostal for the weary traveler, and seasoned traveler as well. Thanks.

Patrick is great. Very helpful with any travel plans, directions, etc. that you need. Place could use a bit of work. Our room had closet with someone's clothes hanging in it. Could use a fresh coat of paint.
Best breakfast Inhad in four month of travelling. Carola is really spoiling you! The place seems to be a bit far out of town but there are busses running 24/7. It is a place where definately feel at home! Will go back when I am flying out of panama city.
The staff made a big effort to keep everyone happy here, was a little quite the first few nights but no problems here we enjoyed the stay.
Great place to stay - very welcoming with lovely breakfast.
Excellent small hostel with very comfortable accommodations and possibly the best free breakfast anywhere on the planet. Patrick and Carola are wonderful hosts who are really there to serve their guests. They quickly agreed to do anything we requested, even to providing special helps for us. It was like visiting the home of beloved family, including their lovely pet dog, Freya. Patrick knows the city and gives very good tips for travelers. In a quiet, very safe neighborhood.
Patrick was excellent and informative. The hostel was in a good, safe area so no danger walking about at night. The supermarket was good and the local takeaway pizza place is highly recommended.
Excellent hostel and very comfy. Patrick is cool and breakfast was best I have ever had in a hostel. Thanks memorable stay.

Great kitchen, fully stocked. I was there only one night and leaving early so didnt get to try the famous breakfast, but we did get coffee at five am, thanks! The location is close to the city but far from casco viejo and our taxi driver had a very hard time finding the place. I'd suggest making sure the taxi driver has credit to call the hostel - our driver was unable to do so and we had no phones! Strong wifi, aircon in the rooms, all good
Patrick picked me up from the airport at 1am and spent much of the following day calling up to try to help me locate my luggage that the airline lost. The breakfast was amazing - veggie burrito! The 4 bed dorm had AC and one of the bathrooms had got water. The kitchen was well equipped. The location was a bit far out of the city but there are buses that you can catch nearby and a couple of big supermarkets close by too, which were very convenient.
This is my favorite type of hostel. It's not a corporate nickel and dime joint. It's like you are staying with friends at their house. Right near bus stop and friendly staff. I'll be back if I'm in panama.
Patrick were very helpfull and the hostel is very clean. The location is particularly good for people on long connection at tocumen airport.
This hostel was the first of many on our journey and it really set the shining example of what all our stays would be compared to. I can say, nothing has yet compared! Patrick & his mom were amazing hosts, very attentive to anything we needed. They gave us great directions, the home was immaculate, the room comfortable & the best of all was the awesome breakfasts every morning! If in Panama City, this place is a must!
Nice place to stay. Clean, safe, well equipped kitchen , very helpful staff. The common area a litte small for several people. Excellent breakfast. Location far from downtown but we didn´t miss the noise. This is a very quiet neighborhood. Traffic is ugly in Panama so to move to tourist locations you have to take the bus or taxi and be patient ! Hostel is in between airport and downtown, so handy and fast if you arrive or leave by plane.
