Hostel Casa Areka is located in the heart of Panama City in a nice neighborhood. There is a 24hr supermarket and restaurants opposite the hostel. The famous Beachwalk is a few steps away as well as two big malls, rooftop bars and even a park at the sea!

The highlight is the amazing pool area surrounded by palm trees with a BBQ area to relax after a busy day in the city. The common area with pool table, sofas and good internet connection invites to chill. The common kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals.

    Really lovely hostel well worth being a bit further from the centre, besides the bus routes, make it very easy to get from the hostel to anywhere in Panama City. Jesus and his staff are very helpful and the morning pancakes a delight. The pool, hammock and outside area where the highlight.

    Clean, comfortable and convenient This place is conveniently located next to a grocery. It's a 12 minute walk to the mall and a 10min walk to a drugstore (photocopying services for 75c a copy). The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the coffee is decent. The wifi is strong and the common room shows football. The staff is attentive and hospitable.

    Perfect stop over after Colombia and before we moved on from Panama city. Private double room was huge and best sleep ever, super comfy! Jesus is awesome, very lovely guy and he upgraded our room to ensuite! Staff are fun, nice vibe everyone hangs in social areas. Nice pancakes for breakfast, kitchen quite clean. Location is good, by supermarket and restaurants. We left Panama City quickly so I can't say if the location is good in terms of activities/things to do.

    Great hostel! Nice atmosphere to meet people, right across the road from a supermarket, good kitchen and great fun with a pool. Location is ok, uber to all the main attractions should cost no more than $8 one way. Only con is no lockers in dorms, just in reception area. Would recommend

    The rooms were quite cosy (not much space for a room with lots of bags). Friendly staff and close to grocery store. Nice vibes around the pool.
