Property Description

General description:
Casa Bambù – yoga & sushi bar - is the first ecologic structure in Panama. Fully built of guada, a particular species of green bambù from Colombia. Casa Bambù was founded in 2013 and has continued to grow year after year. Since its founding, Casa Bambù has diversified to include a sushi bar and yoga school.
Our outdoor space is nestled in the Panamanian jungle. The main bungalow is a common space for our guests and a restaurant (sushi bar and Italian cuisine). The other 4 bungalows are common dormitory or private apartment. Yoga deck, outdoor shower, and hammocks are freely assessable by our guests. Palm trees and local flora decorate the spacious gardens of the 3,000 square meters of Casa Bambù.

Guadua: resistant, versatile, eco-sustainable, eco-sostenibile
Guadua is a species of neotropical bambu. It is characterized by green and gnarled stems. The height can reach up to 25 meters. It is an ideal building material thank to its large diameter (it can reach up to 25 centimetres in diameter) making it the preferred bambu for building. Guadua is an earthquake-proof material. Due to these attributes, it is sometimes referred to as “vegetable steel”. Unlike modern building material, bambu does not have an adverse effect on the ecosystem. An appropriately designed bambu structure does not require petrochemical or cementing materials, all of which translates into an environmental impact of 0.

Casa Bambù solutions:
Casa bambù offers its guest’s four different options depending on the customers needs:
•The Dormitory: Two dorms with single beds and bunk beds. Both have 6 beds each.
•Deluxe bungalow: Private bungalow provided with three beds (possibility of adding the fourth). Private bathroom and kitchen.
•Superior bungalow: Same as the Deluxe.
•Family bungalow: the casa bambù suite. Two floors of private space, three bedrooms and panoramic terrace.

For further information about our services, please consult the single voice in reservations menu, look at the photo gallery or call us if you have any doubts. Our Instagram profile is regularly updated with weekly offers and with the services proposed every day, from kitchen school to yoga lesson.

    That was really a great experience!! It’s a beautiful place in the middle of the nature with amazing good vibes!! It’s FANTASTIC!!! The beach is at 10 min by feet and if u love surf there is some great waves and not so many people ;) You have to go there! Especially if u love sushi! (It was one of the most delicious sushi I’ve ever eaten)

    This hostel is amazing! I loved the location. It's far enough from town that you don't have to worry about noise or security, yet you are able easy walk (provided you aren't obese) from the beach and the center of town. The buildings are really cool and their unique design makes them cool even during the hottest time of day. If you are someone who appreciates craftsmanship and architecture than is the place for you. The staff is great and always eager to help with whatever you need.

    The Bamboo lodge was an amazing hostel! It was secluded, beautiful, and just a short walk to the center of the town. The staff were very helpful and extremely welcoming. The lodges were well designed and overall it was an amazing stay! I hope to return to Santa Catalina someday to stay again!

    The ecolodges were amazing! We had an entire lodge to ourselves that included beds, kitchen, and bathroom. There's no A/C but the fans did a good enough job keeping us cool even in 80+ degree weather. It's a bit outside Santa Catalina town center but it's a quick walk away from the beach!

    LOVED staying here for the chillaxed vibe and the amazing bamboo buildings. The beds are super comfy and there’s an awesome yoga platform to use. While it’s a bit out of town it’s nice to be a bit removed, rent a bike from a shop or catch a local ride along the main road if you don’t want to walk. The kitchen is small but you have what you need, and of course amazing staff! Hit up the fruiteria in town for a daily smoothie! You must have the sushi - the best you’ll have anywhere.

    the lodge is on the edge of Santa Catalina along a 200metre drive. There is a kitchen and fridge for guests as well as a restaurant. The dorms have a large en suite shower room. The grounds and gardens are nice and theres a yoga deck ($10). There are no lockers - which I feel is a must for backpackers and guests. The high beds are not easy to get into There is little spare room for bags. The staff are friendly and helpful...Daniel and Francisco, but the latter upset my daughter unfortunately

    Nice place. A bit far away from the centre. Friendly staff, although the owner blamed us for trying to cheat them, which we didn’t. He said some really mean things and made our whole experience a little sad.. In a case where there is a misunderstanding, I think it is important to communicate and not blame people for shitty stuff. But have to say the place is really beautiful, probably the beauties hostel in the whole town.

    Guy that checked us in was pretty angry - he berated us for accidentally going into the wrong kitchen and kept complaining about previous guests. Other member of staff there was very friendly. The bathroom door in our room didn’t close properly - there was a large gap that meant you could see in. Luckily there was nobody else staying in our room. There are lots of similarly priced hostels located in the town - the walk there isn’t that bad but unnecessary with so many other options closer.

    Pros: the bamboo structures are a nice idea. Cons: our hut leaked in the main area and in the bathroom, the shower was broken and there were loose electrical wires in there, the staff failed to get up to provide the free shuttle service we had asked twice about and they were rude when we asked to pay in the morning. In the end they sulkily suggested we didn’t pay but we could easily have just left without saying anything as no one was around or seemed to care. A real lack of care in general.

    Absolutely the most horrible experience and hostel I’ve ever been in. I would definitely not recommend this hostel and this property should be removed. Apparently there are always parties on Saturdays, when we asked until what time this would last Francisco got really rude and upset. He started yelling at us that we had to ‘CHANGE OUR MOOD!!’ And threatened us with having to checkout right away, which made my gf cry. The party went on until 4AM. Beds are s***t, no warm water, 10$ for laundry.. bs
