Property Description

Lonely Planet says If you`re after a small, intimate hostel, Mamallena should be your top pick. Well, we`d say we`re a mid sized hostel, but that means we`re not so big that we can`t provide a personal level of service to all our guests.

We`ve long been regarded as one of the best hostels in Panama City and we plan on keeping that reputation. We`re travellers like you and we know what you want, that means keeping our service levels high and our prices affordable.

How are we different from other hostels in Panama City? We're located in an area easily accessible for public transport and where all the budget restaurants and bars are located. While we do sell beers at the hostel we also let you bring in your own alcohol to drink, which many hostels in Panama City don't. Thats saving you money just by booking with us! If you have friends come to visit we'll also let them come in, which many hostels also won't allow.

We`re not a 24 hour party hostel but that doesn`t mean we`re boring. We try to provide something for everyone, theres a party when you want it but when it`s time for peace and quiet then theres plenty of areas to escape to. Our large back terrace is popular for drinks and socialising, but we also have the lounge area for watching one of our 100`s of movies and the garden where we have hammocks, lounges, a BBQ and huge tables for those group meals.

But we`ve kept the sleeping areas away from the social areas. If you want an early night then you won`t be keep awake by those who don`t. We also don`t have any rules, we`re all adults and we know how to act. All we ask is that you`d show the respect to others that you`d expect yourself.

We pride ourselves on the quality of information that we provide. We were the first hostel in Panama City to provide bookings for boats to Colombia and we continue to be the leader in this area. We`ve also got some of the best contacts in the San Blas area and can arrange just about whatever you want down there, whether it`s a 3 day sailing cruise or a budget island stay.


What do we have for you?
- English speaking staff, Great mattresses ,Free(obviously!!) expert advice, Free all day pancake breakfast, Air conditioning in rooms(at night), Spacious dorm rooms, two with ensuite, Small double rooms with shared bathrooms, 24 hr kitchen, Free tea and coffee, free internet access on public computers, Free WiFi, Sheets and Pillows(of course), Towels for rent, Honesty System Bar(because we trust you......), 24 hr reception, NO CURFEW, Free Luggage, Reasonably priced shuttle service, Valuables lockers(Fits laptops and SLR's), Hammock Garden and BBQ Area, Booking of Trips and Tours at low prices, FEE FREE, Close to popular bars and clubs, Easy access to all tourist destinations, Information on sailing to Colombia, Homestays in the San Blas Islands, and unlike many hostels we let you bring in your own alcohol!

Close by is everything a backpacker needs, you`re on a budget and out to save money and our area is the place to do it. Close by are a host of budget eating places, local bars and cheap shopping. If you can`t find it here you can`t find it in Panama! Plus there`s easy access to bus stations and all the major tourist attractions.

Even if you chose not to stay with us drop in and have a look. We're sure you'll be impressed(and sorry you stayed somewhere else). Stop in for a drink on the terrace, use the book exchange, visit some friends, get your laundry done. Our services are NOT just for guests only(depending on how nice you are of course!!!)

Note -
We say our dorm room has 12 beds, it`s more than likely you`ll get one with 8 beds.

Once you have a booking for a dorm bed you`re in for as long as you`d like to stay. Private room stays can be extended depending on availability. But we`ll always help you find another place if we have none.

Our private rooms are small and cosy, don't expect 5 star!

If it shows that we have no availability for a particular date just check with us. There`s a fair chance that we`ll be able to fit you in.

If you need any information or advice feel free to email us.

    Nice hostel. Was given double bunk beds so that was nice to stretch out...doesnt happen often in the travelling world :) However our food kept getting robbed from the communal fridge and pantry area...but I guess you can't fault the hostel for that?!!

    Nice place, except the staff completely forgot to book our 5am taxi we ordered the night before, had to scramble to get to airport on time. Otherwise great, except for the cats. Good wifi, good vibes, good coffee, good kitchen, good spaces, convenient location for ancon hill and bus terminal. Is in a bit of a dive neighbourhood but that's not why people stay here, it's transit mostly. Safe, clean, friendly.

    Nice hostel! The staff was really friendly and helpful, the beds and showers overall were pretty clean. Inside the hostel I felt safe and the atmosphere is really chill. Must say though, the area around the hostel is a bit sketchy at night, I would not have left the house alone. The art all around Mamallena is very welcoming though, and the free breakfast and (well working!) wifi were really nice. If you are travelling alone, maybe consider a safer alternative, but for me, I'd stay there again.
