Lockers in lobby and pretty small and limited; front door closed and locked at night (in a seemingly safe area). Location was a bit far from the things there were to do but close-ish to a metro stop. Staff were nice and welcoming. Atmosphere allowed meeting new people, but not spectacular (rated: Good). There were two showers and they didn't feel clean; never warm water. Pretty average value for the money and the facilities in general were pretty average. AC run at night.

The guy who owns it who is always on reception is so helpful and will always go out his way to make your stay that even better! Nice chilled atmosphere and it's real close to the shopping centre and lot's of restaurants. I highly recommend.

The location is great. It has everything near the hostel, bus stop, restaurants, bars, banks, shopping malls. The kitchen needs more utensils, stove and a new refrigerator greater. The water in the showers are cold, however there is no need for hot water because the city is very hot. The only problem that upset me was the internet that was bad for almost a week I was there. The rest was very good! I made several friends and the vibe is very good!

The perfect place to stay! The only thing i didnt like was that you are not able to use the kitchen, so you have to pay for every meal.. but that is understandable as electricity is not unlimited there.

We had a great stay here. The staff were really friendly and so helpful and the location of the hostel is great! Only a five minute walk to the waterfront and a short walk to the old town. The four bed dorm was comfortable and the swimming pool is gorgeous. Definitely recommend it!

Great Hostel and staff. Thanks Daniel and Carmelo. Stayed 2 nights here with my kids 7 and 10 yrs old and had a blast. Enjoyed it so much that during my next visitation days with my kids Oct. 16-19 will stay at the beach Hostel in Playa Morrillo. Got a great deal on the private room for both stays and will give everyone the update on the beach Hostel. Gracias por todo y que Hostel mas agradable y divirtido. Mis ninos les gusten la pisicina en al dia y noche!!!!! Aloha y Paz Blake Gilner

Como já Tinha estado em Casco Viejo anteriormente, selecionei este Hostel por ser muito bem localizado no centro do Panama, próximo ao shopping, cassinos e da Av. Balboa, o que facilita a saída para o aeroporto de ônibus. Piscina boa e equipe do albergue fina. Para quem gosta, panquecas incluídas no café da manhã. Único ponto negativo: banho frio.

The owner of this place was awesome. The rest of the staff could use a lesson in customer service. The rooms are basic and sufficient since you don't spend much time in them anyways. Pool was great. No lockers in the rooms but there were lockers in the lobby.

This hostel is in the best neighborhood in panama (marbella). Ive been to panama a few times, and this hostel had the best location, atmosphere, a pool, good bars and restaurants and shopping all close by. there are pancakes and coffee in the morning for breakfast... recently they opened a little cafe in front of the hostel and literally have the best brownies i ever ate... the owner is a very nice helpful guy and all of his staff are good people and very helpful... thanks for everything guys!!

Warning: I was offered a "free night" at a "sister" hostel on the beach (because I'd been a guest in Panama City). I thought I was going to a fishing village. "You can ride in the van with Steve tomorrow night" I was told. Well, the van cost $30 each way, the hostel (very nice rooms) was a totally secluded surf camp; there was no free night; 2 nights for the price of 1, i.e., 2 nights at half price. My 'free night' cost almost $100. But I KNOW I offered a fine dinner to the sand fleas.

Atmosphere was chilled and the pool was awesome for sunny days! Staff was relaxed and helpful. Internet connection a bit slow and crashing down time to time but over all great place to stay!
