    This is one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in. The hosts were awesome, the atmosphere was great. Not a party hostel, but easy to meet people and socialize. Breakfast pancakes were great, but the hammocks were better.

    The owner is sooooo sweet. She talked with us for a while when we checked in, she offered her tablet since I had no phone at that moment, she offered medicine when I got sick, she knows the area pretty well. A/C in the private room which was nice. The hostel is lovely and you feel just like home. Would totally go again

    This hidden gem is 1 of the best hostels I stayed at, ever! The house, owners, dogs, breakfast, vibe, everything. I intended to stay 2 days but ended up staying 11, as it was a home away from home! Justina and Erwin do their upmost to make you feel welcome and part of the family. The house is well-cared for and everything an old-school hostel should be! Come here if you’re looking for a few days of chill, make new friends, enjoy a beautiful serene environment and catch some Caribbean Vibes!

    Hostel macondo was really wonderful to stay at. The hostess was gracious and welcoming. The “chill area” outside was first class: patio lights, hammocks, pool table, chess. Breakfast was delicious—she even goes to Panama City to get the nice syrups, jams, etc. Coffee was dank. I highly recommend. If you are looking for a raging party on the beach, this is not your place. But it was beautiful and quaint. Several good restaurants. I recommend paying $5 to use the private beach.

    The staff was extremeeeely helpful, she gave me all the info I needed, even arranged the lanchas and an early taxi in the morning with a discount price! The place is well located right beside the dock, it's clean and has good amenities. i recommend!

    Friendly, helpful, and down to earth staff. Feels like family. Simple and small island. Come prepared to read or write, otherwise more than a few days will get boring. Seafood at restaurants is good and large portions and very reasonable prices. Check out the lighthouse on a clear day. Snorkel off the far beach, saw cuttlefish and barracuda. ***CASH: bring small bills because no one can break $50 and $100’s. ***DIRECTIONS: buses tricky. Final destination Isla Grande/La Guyra, then $3 boat taxi.

    This was probably my favourite stop along my trip through Panama. So relaxing and beautiful. The hostel itself is a travellers oasis. This tree house-esq house and great kitchen was a perfect escape from everything. That includes wifi on the whole island really. Isla Grande and the hostel were great. Only issue was there was a lack of water on the island all together. Justina,the host, was incredible. She helped me out on more than one occasion.

    Stayed there 4 nights and enjoyed my time! Hostel is clean and in the center of the very small island „City“. It’s perfect when you are looking for a relaxed & quiet time. My host Justina was always there with advise and hints for restaurants, hikes and some interesting chats about the island life. Unfortunately, the WiFi is broken but whenever needed, Justina provided me with her personal hotspot. Bit tricky to go there by public transportation but overall manageable. Would stay there again!

    Justina and Edwin are perfect owners! Friendly, kind and helpful. Justina is really funny! The breakfast (toasts or pancakes) is excellent and huge! There are mosquito nets and fans in the dormitory, which is a nice touch and essential. It's also super clean and Justina gave me the choice to stay in a dormitory with other people or alone. I had a good night sleep! Note that you are on an island, therefore in summer the water is a scarce resource and there is no WiFi. Perfect to disconnect.

    Breakfast of pancakes and coffee included was tasty. Close to everything on the island. Private room was nice. Everything was very clean! No wifi on the island so plan accordingly and there is water scarcity all over, so don’t think you’ll be taking long luxurious showers.
