Very clean. Young mix of travelers with more of a chill atmosphere, than a party. Perfect balance for me. Not a huge place, so if you're solo and looking to team up with others on a day trip or something, you might want to inquire at nearby hostel Luna's Castle trip desk.

Great hostel, very clean and not too noisy (unless you sleep on the second floor). The dorms on the first floor have AC all day, which is greatly appreciated. However, the absence of blind on the windows makes it difficult to sleep in the morning. Warm showers! The staff is in general friendly, with some exceptions. The kitchen is OK, but with only 3 spots on the electric stove, you may wait quite a while before being able to cook. As for the location, it is amazing! Very clean and nice place.

To me this is a "5 star". It is a great location and it is quiet. Since I am an older person, I appreciate peace and quiet.

Stayed thee nights in 12 bed dorm, very nice people actually, did not vorher me. Man at front desk not very nice. Location amazing! Enough showers and toilets. Would try new hostel next time but definitely recommend as cheap place to stay.

Run by an American couple who doesn't hesitate to help out with clever tips on where to (and not to) go in Panama City. Very strong air conditioning in the dorm, woke up freezing a couple of times, but it's a nice change from the hot and humid Panama City air, and I'd rather put on an extra sweater than tumble around around sweating at night!

This place is so great. Like a hotel not a hostel. Staff are so helpful and inviting. Still able to have a good time here aswell as relax and enjoy some much needed AC! Would reccomend to everyone.

Good hostel with a suberb location. Among the friendliest staff I've met, very helpful. A little quiet and it's my first central/south american hostel, so I am only comparing to my past experience in Asia now. People I met in the hostel were very positive to Magnolia. I've been to better, but I wouldn't feel bad to recommend this place to anyone. Thumbs up!

Not a lot of an atmosphere, would totally recommend this to anyone but a single traveler wanting to meat people.

This hostel is amazing. New facilities, it's amazingly clean. We stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm with aircon and fan for $15 pp per night. Great value. The kitchen was great, clean and well equipped. They definitely put a lot of effort knot this hostel. The showers and toilets are super clean. I would definitely recommend this hostel. We had a very comfortable stay.

Brilliant location, nice staff and loved the light and power sockets allocated to each bed. I would definitely stay there again if I go back to Panama City.

great location and friendly staff. the top bunks are HIGH!!! If you were to fall off in the middle of the night, you'd fracture something easily.
