    This hostel was great value for money. They had hot showers, Netflix, a large kitchen and 24hour security. It is located right in the heart of old town which is where all the best bars and restaurants are situated.

    Great location, friendly staff, well-stocked kitchen and pleasant well-decorated, communal space. Our private room was clean with air-conditioning and a spacious, hot shower.

    One of the nicest hostels we have stayed in on our whole 3 month trip. So clean and comfortable, big living/lounge and kitchen. More like a little boutique hotel than a hostel. In a great area in Casco Viejo. Would highly recommend to anyone

    Had a great 2 night stay here. The dorm was large and has all single beds- no bunk beds! Facilities were clean. Staff were there 24 hrs. The location is great right in Casco Viejo. Free coffee is a plus. The building is definitely unique. Would recommend.

    I'll start with the bad. There is a lot of light in the dorms (just use an eye mask), there was no AC in the common areas so you do have to hangout in the rooms on hot days, and its very loud from construction outside the hostel. That is all the negatives about this place. This was my third time staying here, and I would definitely come again. The staff is very nice, there is hot water in the shower, the AC in the room works miracles, and its in a perfect location. I would definitely recommend.

    Stay twice at magnolia on either side of a San Blas tour. It was the perfect hostel for staying in the city, location in casco viejo cant be beat. Dorms were quiet (friends in other hostels couldn’t sleep because of the noise), clean and comfortable with lockers. Front desk was 24hrs, full kitchen and cozy common area. Would stay here again for sure.

    I would say that the majority of the staff are very kind and helpful. During my stay, some of my roommates decided to blast the AC and I had to argue with some staff members to get an extra blanket although there are signs in the room saying blankets are readily available. Aside from that minor annoyance, it was hard to get to sleep due to the noise from the common area—it would be nice if staff would enforce quiet hours. Great location and very clean hostel though!

    Good experience, I was a little cold because of AC but I’m always cold. The hostel was nice it seemed smaller once I got there but is still nice.

    Very Good

    20 May 2019
    Positives: Lovely building and furnishings. Good quality bedding. Decent kitchen and lounge area. Location is great, right in the old town. Negatives: Staff are a bit distant, and there is no hostel social vibe (much more like a hotel). Security guard randomly unlocked the door of dorm in middle of night to try and show a guy a random hooker the room (neither were staying there). This was not cool and really annoyed me. Overall its not bad for 1 or 2 nights max.
