Wonderful staff, great kitchen, and probably the cleanest hostel I've stayed in. Beautiful setting with flowers, trees and the creek behind the property creates a lovely background sound. Only 2 improvements - better wifi (although this was a constant problem throughout Panama and not just at this hostel) and some kind of sign marking the street. Definitely download the directions before you set out to find this place - no signs, and most people in town think it's still on the main street.
I loved this little gem of a guesthouse only 5 minutes walking from the subway and Sagrada Familiar. It was cozy, super clean and I had the place to myself for most of the time I stayed. I enjoyed the location - convenient but not in the throngs of tourists near Las Ramblas - instead I used the subway system to get around if I wanted to go there. My single room was small but extremely clean and comfortable, excellent kitchen with food provided! Would definitely recommend.
Mostly pros - great staff, they help arrange tours and transfers, free cocktail party, fantastic old building that still retains much of its character while serving as a hostel too. Location in the old town is amazing. AC is good and having a light duty kitchen next ti my room was a unexpected bonus. Cons -- need more bathrooms but wasn't a deal breaker for a stay of 2 nights. Not sure how they would ever fix this given the age and structure of the building anyway.
Great vibe - easy to meet other travelers to do stuff with. Very good staff - professional chef does a barbecue some evenings and crepes for breakfast - both are wonderful. Yoga in the morning, free pickup from bus station, fantastic location with views of the old city and water below. Cons - bathrooms are not cleaned often enough through the day, my dorm room was pretty tight for 6 beds, although there was a place (unsecured) to put your stuff just outside to create more space in the room.
Great location - 5 minute walk from bus station and 3 minutes to everything on the waterfront and main sttractions of town. Staff was great -- efficient, knowledgable and very nice. Facilities are good -- they could use another toilet for the girls, but easnt a del breaker. Walls are thin so bring earplugs. Overall would definitely stay there again!
