Chilled as vibe, and it has a pool. I stayed at other hostels in Panama City but this was the most welcoming.

In the hotel services was written hot showers ( hot water in the showers but I have not found).Payment by credit card (when you pay with the card I was told that no cards not accepted ) then in the description of the services do not coincide with reality. some rooms have been built without lockers and beds in each part including a landing. according to my point of view very ugly and not very comfortable for the guests . The double beds are very unstable and noisy . compliments to the girl

I really enjoyed my time at Villa Vento. Definitely the best place to stay in Panama city. Came for one day and ended up staying a week. Relaxed People, the pool is such a plus and the staff is always nice and helpfull. I highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for nice atmosphere and wanna have a great time in the city.

The hostel is alright but it's all the small things combined that start to irritate you; no lockers in the bedroom, horrific wifi, never any change of bigger notes to purchase drinks, fridge out of water to buy (for days), cleaner changing sheets and cleaning rooms from 8am (including a Sunday morning!), no laundry on site, and some staff aren't that friendly (others are great though). Has a fair way to go before it's a proper functioning hostel. Was nice, but wouldn't stay there again.

Lovely hostel, huge kitchen to cook and pancakes for breakfast which you make yourself. Lots of help with getting around from the friendly staff. The area around seems really smart and safe, lots of options for food. A good base for the city.

Its not a Big hostel, but that is what that makes it so Nice..people are open a Nice, so a good spot if you travel alone, its not a party hostel, but people tends to gather during the Night and have some beers (1 USD each) on the porch. All the travellers i met the were open and friendly

7 dorm: Comfy beds, no night lamps, few plug ins, the one single bed is too much since no room for bags, heavenly ac for the night, could hear all the noise from backyard until ~2am, 2 clean bathrooms, lockers only downstairs. Pool is in the shade and not attractive. Well equipped kitchen, bf 2pancakes. Hostel area not so nice, would prefer Casco Viejo closer to the docks and Albrook. Minimarket and 2restaurants on the same street. Friendly staff, not always easy to approach. We had a nice stay!

Hostel staff was helpful with simple questions and very practical in suggestions for local activities, sightseeing. The hostel definitely has a youthful feel to it. Although quiet hours technically started at 11PM, the two nights I was there activities were occuring well after midnight. The staff hosted a bbq on the night of a holiday since many of the local eateries and street vendors were closed... very cool of them!

We really enjoyed our time at Villa Vento. People were very nice, the pool was cool and we always felt safe. Whenever you asked for help, the staff did not hesitate to help you. It was the best hostel we stayed at in Panama. We liked it so much that we went back to this hostel twice. I can only recommend it to everyone who is looking for a nice atmosphere and who wants to have a great time.

We have stayed at the hostel 3 times and use it as out base in Panama City. The staff are excellent - extremely helpful and friendly, the hostel is pristine and has all the facilities you need (an excellent kitchen, lockers, 24-hour reception, comfy sofas, clean bathrooms and an excellent swimming pool/sunbathing area). It's in a great (and safe) area of town, within walking distance of the shopping mall, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, laundry, banks and bars etc. Highly recommended!
