Too far from the center and rather a private home of the owners who rent out their spare rooms. Poor internet. No aircondition or tourist agency although statet. The worst was that the mother was sleeping on the couch in the livingroom one night and the whole room smelled like her beerbreath.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Of course we are not at the center of the town,you knew that when you made the booking since there is a map of our location.Every hostel is a private owned house that is transformed into a hostel.We have a 3Mbit conection,all the other clients had no problems,check your laptob/tablet.In the room description is stated wich room has A/C and wich not,you choosed one without.In no place whatsoever have we stated that we are a tourist agency,that is a fallacy of yours.

A bit off the beaten path, but good for an early AM flight from airport. Staff was there to greet us and rooms were immaculate and comfortable.

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.

Great host, Patrick was very helpful and kind. Good atmosphere too, we met some cool people. It's a quiet hostel and very basic accommodation: simple room and very small, but clean. But the biggest downside is location. It's too much far away from the dowtown. It's close to Panama Viejo which is NOT the same as Casco Viejo/Antiguo. Any other place you want to visit apart from panama viejo is far away, and you have to take taxis/cabs. It's far from airport, downtown, Casco Antiguo, etc.

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.

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.

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.
