    Magnolia Inn was clean, attractive, and quiet. I arrived late in the evening and left early the following morning to catch my flight so I didn't spend much time there but the beds were very comfortable, my dorm had AC, and the showers have hot water. I'll definitely stay there again if I return to Panama City.

    Located in the middle of Casco Viejo (old town), this hostel was perfect for the first few days in Panama City. It is clean, safe, secure. It has great facilities - toilets, showers, kitchen, wifi, lockers. The staff were extremely professional, friendly, and helpful. I had an accident in Bocas and had to cancel a night last minute and they easily accommodated it. Shout out to Joseph at the front desk!

    Really great location, friendly staff and very nice common room area. Only downside was vibe was poor - a few families and elderly couples. Not really great if you’re looking for a more social vibrant place

    This place was probably one of the nicest in panama that I stayed at during my 13 days. The Building felt secure for the most part as there were lots of cameras however the dorm doors didn’t lock so anyone could come in. But that doesn’t stop me from giving this place a rave review. Each bed had an associated locker and food storage bin in the kitchen. Each bed had an outlet and a light. The AC in the room was definitely helpful in Panama City. Our room also had a little balcony to sit on.

    Really great location and helpful staff. The drawers in the kitchen for each bed is a great idea and the kitchen and communal space was really good for doing your own thing rather than going out.

    Very Good

    There were no other guests there, yet some of the beds in the dorm room I stayed in were unmade. The ones that were made seemed like they were made long ago, as there were remnants of bug carcasses and gecko poop on them. No lights in the shower rooms, and there was stuff left over presumably from past guests (who knows how long ago they stayed). The one guy working had to make some phone calls to validate my reservation, but he ended up being really nice.
