Luna's Castle Hostel, Panama City, Panama

7th Jun 2014

Excellent sociable party hostel, great facilities, staff helpful when present (seem to have some morning punctuality problems), large comfy beds in a variety of spacious dorms with excellent bag storage, the dorms with external windows are bright, cool and excellent value, however dorm 1 (without external windows) is a dark, loud sweatbox. However there is a high guest turnover so moving beds isn't too much of a problem. Kitchen excellent.

24th May 2014

A truly excellent place to stay for a few days, so relaxing, food is excellent and well priced and there are enough activities to keep you occupied if you feel the urge to leave your hammock! Staff excellent, and the nightly camp fire/fire pit is a fantastic touch (bring marshmallows from Santa Marta!)

Hostel The Roof, Cartagena, Colombia

22nd May 2014

Reasonable hostel, staff friendly, a/c in the dorms is a life saver if not used to the heat, roof terrace is nice, but for some unfathomable reason has been painted black, coupled with the lack of shade makes it unbearable in the day and still a bit hot at night (despite the sea breeze). Kitchen is a non event (a hot plate with a broken pan), breakfast is nice.

It was cheap and staff were quite friendly, got a downstairs room which felt like we were in an underground bunker, upstairs rooms looked a bit nicer, nice hammock area, hummingbirds a real plus, breakfasts varied in quality and quantity. No kitchen facilities, wouldn't rush back, significantly better places available for slightly more money.

Excellent stay, hostel and family are amazing and have a massive knowledge of hiking/activities in the area. Only booked for 3 nights but stayed for over a week. Great roof top view of the Codillera Blanca, location is a nice quiet neighbourhood and easy 4 soles taxi/80c colectivo to town. Would strongly recommend.

Loved this little hostel, the hosts esp Jessica could not have been more friendly or helpful - we booked all our day tours through her - the prices def match or even beat those direct from the places in town and the company she uses are very professional with bilingual guides every time. We also booked a salt flat tour from san pedro to uyuni through her (company as world white travel) and they too were fantastic value for money. Double room beautiful.

A great little hostel, quick and easy transfers to the city centre and good amenities for picking up breakfast etc en route! Meiko is a brilliant hostess, very friendly and at great pains to make sure you enjoy your stay. We had a great trip, many thanks.
