Nice located, near bars and places to eat fast food, not more than 5 blocks away, people from the staff only one of them is nice and try to explain all as much as he can the others not at all, breakfast is good.


Good place to chill for a few nights. Some Rooms are connected though so lots of people coming and going at all hours. Staff were friendly and the cafe out front is nice.. Has much better wifi than in the hostel.


Vera mice place and staff!


Good hostel would reccomended!


A laid back environment setup well for meeting other travelers. The AC is turned on at night, which is awesome for sleeping in the hot panama city. Pancakes provided in the morning. Great and understanding staff - I was unable to make one of my nights due to travel issues and they were completely understanding!


Stayed for 3 nights and atmosphere is hit or miss. One night everyone on phones and computer next night everyone socializing. Chill hostel though. Pretty far walk to casco viejo but awesome pool and chill hostel workers.


Really cool hostel with a nice atmosphere. Pool area is perfect to relax and the kitchen is huge and quite well equipped. Staff and the owner are the nicest people ever. Would definitely stay there again!


Great hostel, very clean, nice pool and the staff were incredibly helpful! Thanks guys :)


The Beds are great , soft ! !!! But unfortunately the place is so hot. There needs to be more fans or Aicon in the main area. I was wet from sweating most of the time. The Internet works if you ask them to unplug it and plug in again. I think they need to upgrade for the number of people !!!! Location was quiet and safe . near some nice restaurants and close to the sea. It was possible to walk to the old town but took 40 minutes. Couple of young guys behind the reception were very helpful !

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.
