    An absolute gem of a hostel. The building and decor it self is absolutely beautiful, the service is super friendly, and the shower has proper hot water with pressure (something rare in hostels 😂). The area is very nice too. Hands down one of the best hostels I’ve been to!

    Loved this place! Location is pretty much perfect in the old town, staff at the reception was super friendly and helpful. When I was in front of Magnolia Inn I firstly thought I must be wrong, place rather looks like a pretty hotel in and old building than a hostel. Rooms are great and super spacious. My room had 4 beds where most other hostels would put 8-10 beds. Bathrooms and showers super clean. Large shared area. Not a party hostel but if you are not looking for party then perfect!

    My boyfriend and I had an overnight layover in Panama City, so we stayed at Magnolia Inn for one night, in a mixed dorm for 4 people. It worked out quite nicely, as the other bunk was occupied by a couple from France. The hostel was clean and had a very welcoming/homey vibe. There was always someone at the front desk which was reassuring and made checking in/out at awkward times smooth. Great location for exploring Casco viejo. Had a short stay here but would stay again!

    Nice hostel, located in the middle of casco viejo. Good hangout area if you need to catch a flight in the evening. Very clean all over! A/C was very cold at night.

    Super great hostel, would definitely recommend. The location is super central and facilities really nice and clean. Just note it isn’t so lively if you are looking to socialize and meet others but it is super clean and the staff was really helpful.

    Stayed in the ballroom dorm and enjoyed how I didn’t have to sleep in a bunk bed. Everything was clean, and I would probably stay here again!
