Really loved my stay here, so much that I ended up postponing leaving for 3 or 4 days - probably one of the longest times I've ever spent in a hostel. Great place to meet fun travelers, and the location within Casco Viejo was wonderful. I would highly recommend taking advantage of the free bike rentals they offer. The bar below offers happy hour beers for 50 cents - what more do you need? Ocean front view is sweet, but not all ocean front rooms are equal. Ask to see your room first if possible


I have stayed at many hostels and this is by far the best! The staff is very nice, it's in a great location, and the accommodations were perfect. I recommend Luna's Castle highly!

great place for travellers going through panama city. Be cautious of information from staff as i received multiple pieces of wrong information regarding the busses from albrook. otherwise it was a great experience and nice place!


Great staff who were very helpful. A good place to stay if you are traveling solo because it is easy to make friends. Pay the extra dollar for the room with windows (ocean view), the cheap rooms have no windows and can be pretty miserable.


EPIC. As far as hostels go, this is the ultimate Casco establishment. Had the best time!

A great backpacking hostel. Location gives a great view of Panama City skyline, lively bar downstairs, loads of communal areas, free pancake breakfast. Only negative point to make is it is VERY loud at night up to around 3am whichever room you are staying in the hostel. Overall a great hostel.
