    Amazing place, I extended because it was so awesome. It’s peaceful but in the city. Clean, old building but well maintained. Very nice staff. Overall, super great spot!

    It was quiet and relaxing. I really enjoyed the staff, the room, and the overall atmosphere. Even though the location is out of the way, shopping is still close by, and there's plenty of selections. I highly recommend Bodhi Panama.

    The hostel is located right in the middle of nature with animals frequently seen amongst the trees and around the grounds. Easy to get down to the city via Uber. The highlight for us was the free walking tour of Ancon Hill with Hernan. He is the guy that you can speak to for any other sightseeing you want to do around Panama City. He is awesome! The hostel breakfast is also fantastic, we had deliciously fluffy cinnamon pancakes with fresh fruit and coffee.

    The location is fabulous. The hostel is surrounded by trees and nature. I saw toucons in the trees whilst eating breakfast from the outside terrace. The staff are fabulously friendly and helpful and having breakfast included was great too.

    Very Good

    This place was nice enough, but I wouldn't go back. Location was PRETTY, but there is NOTHING within walking distance - not even a minisuper! There was never someone at the desk - it took us over a day to check in, luckily the cleaning lady gave us our key when we arrived at 2 pm. There WAS free parking, but not much, not secure, and someone parked us in because we parked in their spot (no check in/sign to direct us), and we almost missed an appointment. Nobody wore masks.

    I wanted to like Bodhi, but left after 1 night. The staff was very helpful and hardworking, and it's a good location for hiking up Cerro Ancon, but there's too much broken or run down in the building. I had a private room w/shared bathroom, but the door lock was impossible to use -- I was afraid I'd never get back in. The window had 2 missing panes and torn screens, so the AC unit was competing with 85° jungle heat & humidity. The next door shower leaked loudly all night.
