Decent hostel for a large city, I stayed there for 1 night, I'm not sure if I would stay there for longer; although it's well situated in the old city and next to an awesome cafe, casa sucre More

Feels like staying in a beautiful colonial house rather than a typical hostel. The ballroom on top floor didnt have any bunk beds, just single beds, so there was a lot of space for all guests. Good Wifi in all areas and well kept. More

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 More

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! More

The guy who owns it who is always on reception is so helpful and will always go out his way to make your stay that even better! Nice chilled atmosphere and it's real close to the shopping centre and lot's of restaurants. I highly recommend. More

Nice location in a safe area. Close to shops and bank. I didn't book any tours or anything, but staff were really cool and helpful with info about the city. Dorm was a bit too hot as air con didn't reach my side of the room. The common areas are pretty good. I didn't really use the More

The hostel was alright - can't complain much about the price. There is two tiny bathrooms for the entire hostel to shower in which was kinda rough. The hostel was also full of Israelis, they sort of took over the whole hostel. I didn't really like the vibe of the hostel. Normally hostels More

We had a disagreement over whether or not we booked a private room but they were good about lowering our rate to compensate for not having a private, as none were available anymore. Really clean, nice facility in a good location. BUT if you book with hostelworld the staff don't count your More

The staff weren't super talkative or welcoming. The vibe was pretty average, with everyone doing their own thing. Does have a bar, pool and a pool table but there was no one playing while I was there. The rooms were pretty clean, comfy beds and the aircon was good. More

This place was awful, I was booked for 4 nights and just left after one. No hot water, they don't change the sheets, dirty and run down. I felt ill at ease in my dorm. I would never stay here again not recommend it. There are much better places in Casco Veijo - stay there instead!! 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

Panama by Luis was a good starting point for my Panama journey, being relatively close to the airport. It was a basic hostel and fairly small. The toilet did not have a proper handle to flush it, but it mainly was running the whole time anyway. Breakfast of pancakes and tea or coffee More
