The Hostel is located in a convenient distance from most areas to visit even if it's a bit of a walk. The breakfast consist only of pancakes, which you make your self, and coffee/tea. No hot showers! The hostel have a lot of people/groups going to or arriving from the san blast islands which effects the atmosphere (negatively). Hostel offer laundry service for $5 and tells you there is no self service location in the city even though there is one 3min up the street. Terrible wifi!

Very good hostel with nice and spacious common areas (ping-pong table), a well equipped kitchen (free pancakes for breakfast), nice staff and atmosphere. Only reason not to choose this hostel is if you dislike dogs running around...

Stayed there for 2 or 3 nights. It's located in the middle of everything. Staff is amazing - very helpful and had great recommendations for local food spots. Highly recommend this place. Only con is that there's a decent amount of mosquitos in the chill area because of the plants. You can't avoid mosquitos in Colombia though - just have bug spray ready.

Not bad for a night or 2. Kitchen was good, rooms with A/C were a must and atmosphere was solid. Little bit out of the old town but still worth a stay.

Overall a great stay. Never the less the hostel is located a bit remote in a kinda dark area:) but the hostel is secured welk. Overall the location was fine and you can walk to the old town in 15-20mins. Hostel seems to need a lil' brush up but its nice and for a 2night stay ok.

Nice hostel in Panama City. Staff was friendly and the kitchen is the main meeting point. The privates are small and cosy. Luckily there is airco!

Rooms were way too cold over night. Mentioned this to the night shift guy who decided the solution was to hug me. He was super creepy. Other than that the beds had lockers and charging points and hostel was sociable.
