The hostel itself is beautiful and the facilities are excellent. It was let down because the staff didn't even have time to show us where the room or anything else was and the bars drinks seemed so diluted I'm not sure there was alcohol in them.... Stunning building though and the pool and More

This place seems to be popular among the 18-24 year old crowd. I'm not in this age range and would stay somewhere else if I were to return to Panama City. Cons: too few bathrooms; breakfast is cereal or toast; draws a young/party crowd that stays up and sleeps late (maybe this is a More

Cool place with charm in the enchanting old town area of Panama City. We were there during Carnival and the water was out. That wasn't great. I hope that isn't normal. if they had water it would have been much better. Staff was friendly and spoke Spanish and English very well. More

Upgraded to private double for about $90. Totally worth it. Very clean and good A/C. Neighbourhood seems a bit sketchy at first but was alright within borders recommended by reception. Make sure you get a beer at the brewery about two blocks away and go to the bar on top of the roof (on More

By far my favorite hostel in the area! After staying in the other neighboring hostels, this one definitely has the best, most chill atmosphere. The staff is always helpful with recommendations on places to eat, excursions, bars, whatever you're looking for. Looking forward to staying at More

This is an average hostel. The location is quite good if you want to go to the dirty looking bars and clubs on Calle Uruguay. The dorms and bathrooms are pretty rank. More

Staff in the day were not as friendly and helpful as staff in the evening. I felt like I couldn't even ask anything about the canal/airport transfers. My friends were staying at another hostel called Machicho in Marbella where staff were friendly so I booked everything through them! More

Air conditioning only from 8pm 8am which is annoying since it's very hot it. Common areas are nice, big dinning area but small kitchen for the amount of people. Overall an ok hostel but there are better in the area. More

1. Having to wait for morning coffee til 8 when the kitchen opens is not acceptible or understandible. 2. Asking 25 $ deposit, opening reception at nineam and then not have enough money to repay even in coins? Those are the two main points: Host and Guests not moneybringer and taker. More

Luna Castle is a much better place in terms of atmosphere and facilities. If you want something extremely quiet and pretty primitive bathrooms, this is your place. More
