What an epic hostel!!! Friendly and helpful staff that really care about their guests well being. Pancakes and good coffee in the morning! The location is very central so you can check out various parts of the city with easy access to public transportation. I'll be staying there again next time I'm in Panama City and will be staying at their other hostel in Playa Morrillo, because I enjoyed my time there so much! Thank you guys for a great introduction to Panama!!!

Good location and facilities, maybe the best pancake breakfast I've come by in hostels (arrived really early from a night bus and was allowed to have breakfast before even checking in really made the morning) and really helpful staff helping you with everything you need during your stay, thanks again!

Loved this hostel! Right in the middle of the city and within walking distance to the financial district and Casto viejo, if you want a bit of exercise. The owners are wonderful and really know how to run a welcoming, mellow, and all around good feeling hostel. Great people, great vibes, and great atmosphere.

the staff was very helpful by storing our backpacks for free during our stay at San Blas islands. The hostel is in a safe area and the atmosphere was great,too.

We (2 girls) first booked just 1 night for our arrival in Panama City. As we really liked the atmosphere of this place, we decided to check in again for 3 more nights when we were back in Panama City during our roundtrip. I highly recommend this hostel as it is clean, the area is safe and the staff is really helpful and supportive. We enjoyed our time at Villa Vento Surf very much.

We had a very nice stay at this hostel! The staff was the best, hellping us with taxis, where to eat etc. We also loved the pancakes for breakfast and the pool! The atmosphere at the hostel was excellent, and very chill! The only negative notions we have is that for three of us something was stolen from our backpack and that it got too cold in the room during the night (because of the AC).

The staff at the hostel was extremely helpful and everyone was really nice. The pool was a great bonus. A laundry service would be good but otherwise, they were very accommodating and we enjoyed our stay!

Delightful staff. They try their best to be sure everyone is accommodated for fun in a safe atmosphere. It's family owned, meaning that they show care and for the facilities as well as their guests.

Hostel was definitely just fine. Breakfast is pancakes. Common area doesn't really lend to people mixing a lot so I found the vibe a bit off here. Pool is handy in the heat. Aircon at night only. Bathrooms were ok, could do with a bit of modernising. Dorm was quite cramped. Wifi seemed ok. Staff were helpful and friendly. Locations is fine, there are restaurants and shops within easy walking distance.

Villa Vento surf is one of the best hostels I visited in Central America. The staff is very accommodating and helpful, and there are weekly BBQs where you get a chance to meet with the other travelers at the hostel. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is coming to Panama City!

Our first day we felt at home. This was relieving after a long layover and flight from LA. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Beds were very comfortable, AC works great, and the hostel was very clean. The common area offered many lounging areas, chairs and couches. Pool is clean and refreshing on those hot days. The area central and near Casco Viejo, Panama Canal, parks, trails, views, and great restaurants and bars. This was our first time staying at Villa Vento Surf but we liked it

Spent some quality time relaxing by the pool and really enjoyed my stay here getting to know the friendly and funny staff and travellers at Villa Vento Surf. Convenient location near the Cinta Costera harbourfront and a variety of restaurants and bars walking distance, also easy and safe returning home by bus from daily excursions. Mellow beach vibe right behind a surf shop/cafe at this cool city retreat
