We only stayed one night after flying into Panama City, but this is an excellent Hostel. Very clean and air-conditioned rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful and having a swimming pool at a Hostel is awesome. If we head back to Panama City we shall definetly be staying again.

In general, very laid back. No problem bringing in your own alcohol. Staff was always willing to help. There was always music playing (which I think is a good thing, but I can understand if others disagree). The chill atmosphere, hot weather and cheap hostel beer prices inspired everyone to have a beer in their hand at all times. This place really just forces you to sit back and chill. The dorms/rooms upstairs are oddly organized to minimize privacy, but it's not a big deal. Fairly clean.

Situated around the corner from the beautiful cinto costero waterfront walkway. Felt completely safe both day and night! Although not many cheap places to eat out. It was a more relaxed, mature vibe in the hostel, lacking in atmosphere. Lady at reception was fantastic. The guy on the other hand...a complete kill-joy. Only issues were with the wifi which kept dropping in and out and rooms were a little cramped + squeaky bunks. Kitchen was well equipped. Not enough lockers for the number of bunks.

These guesthouse is a really good price for the quality, the swimming pool is a life saver. The staff is young, cool, helpful. I book for 1 day and finally I pass 3 days here to visit panama.

The staff were wonderful. They were so accommodating and friendly. They organized a taxi for us to/from the airport. They had wonderful recommendations for restaurants, bars and touristy spots.

Loved the central location of the hostel. Everything was very clean, the bathrooms, kitchen, pool, common area. Hostel owner was awesome and extremely friendly. Invited everyone out to eat with him on most days and introduced us to some delicious Venezuelan food! Always willing to give advice about where to go, what to do, and what to see.

Great hostel! The owner Leo is an awesome guy and the rest of the staff made the experience there what it was. They were always looking to help plan or give directions, and were the friendliest of the friendliest. The backyard pool was a huge bonus especially in the humidity of Panama City. Would definitely stay here again and have been recommending it to all other travellers we meet.

Nice place to spend a couple of days in Panama City. Plenty of opportunities to party, but also easy to just relax and avoid the parties. Plenty of bathrooms/showers which were always clean. The A/C was a nice bonus.

this hostel was amazing. The pool was a real bonus in the heat, but the staff are what made our stay here great. Very friendly, super helpful and really went above and beyond. We also stayed at their other hostel in Playa Murillo which was amazing. Very isolated, but right on the beach and we absolutely loved our stay here. Would rcommend it to everybody coming to Panama.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Good value for money. The pool is only around 1.2-1.6m deep, another guest had money stolen from his bag while it was in the room. Shower curtain was broken and lay on the floor for two days before anyone fixed it.

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
