Cannot rate this hostel & staff highly enough. I arrived early in the morning and was really unwell. They made up a bed for me immediately and kept checking if I was ok during the day. Really felt like hope away from home. The building is lovely with really high ceilings and its spotlessly More

Clean dorms, good security, amazing staff, beautiful kitchen, nice lounging area, hot showers, all in all a really beautiful place. It is totally worth spending a few dollars more than the other party hostels and staying here. Nice to relax from the hustle and bustle of Panama City. 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

Not enough washrooms to support guests. The vibe is empty and a little hokey. 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

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

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
