This is a pleasant place to stay. The owners are the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. An example of this is we wanted a room with two beds.The room with two beds was right in between the common areas and the kitchen. They let us move one of te beds upstairs to one of the quiet rooms. Speaking of quiet, several people live there, and it feels more like a home than a hostel. No party, quiet as a mouse after about 9:30-10. Three blocks from a main bus line. no WiFi upstairs. Free air con.


Maria was very good for us, she helped us very well with organizing our trips and she was also very flexible by letting us in the hostel at 6AM. The place is a little far from downtown although we walked to the center a couple if times. Taxi's in Panama City are cheap as well. The neighborhood is safe and quiet at night which was pleasant. The hostel is clean and affordable. We would recommend it to others. Jan.

A great guest house. Rooms are clean and confortable. There is a big kitchen where you can cook and talk with others guest. The owner is an Italien guy who give thousands advices about Panama City and around. He never stop talking so be ready to spend hours to having great conversations :) I had a great welcome by Maria who is always smiling and laughing, Venezuela isn't it ? ;) There is definitely a great atmospher in there and all the things to make you stay longer.


Los Angeles Hostal Residence is one of the cleanest hostels we ever stayed in. They also have a (very clean!) spacious kitchen where you can easily cook a great meal.There is a big supermarket nearby.They even let us cook when we already had checked out..before going on the nightbus to Bocas. We had a room without window which is the cheapest option, there is nicer ones.Furthermore they have an outside seating area to relax, check mails or enjoy your meal.We would recommend it!


Great hostel! Quiet, clean and very very friendly. Mary is the most welcoming host, so helpful and patient with my Spanish! Lots of interesting guests staying there too. I was ill for the 4 days we were there and everyone looked after me. The kitchen was so clean, as were the bathrooms. The location is only about $3 from Casco Viejo by taxi and the bus to the canal was very cheap. Not a party hostel, more like a home. You should definitely stay here.
