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.

    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)

    The Bamboo Lodge is certainly not a location to miss - not if you have the chance to stay there. The construction of the lodges, the desks, beds, chairs, etc. is all made out of a certain extraordinarily sturdy bamboo. The owner began building seven years ago and it is amazing what he has accomplished. The space can accommodate large and small groups, and it is only a short walk the beach, or to town, from the lodge.

    This place is beautiful, it's located in Santa Catalina but not exactly in the town but into the nature, it's very easy to get there with any car even when the road is not asphalt. The people working here are very friendly and easy going, you can enjoy the nature and have a great time just being there watching the sky. The breakfast was awesome and so tasty. I would love to come back again some day.

    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!

    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.

    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
