    I love this hostel, it's a bit further out of the city, but the owner and general feel are fantastic. She is so welcoming and will really try to make you feel like its home. I would stay here again if I just wanted to chill.

    It is a family run hostel and the owner is very helpful and friendly with a good sense of humour. It's a great place to stay, very welcoming and relaxed and you get very good value for money compared to other hostels in Panama City... Highly recommend it, Giles (UK)

    -More like a house they adapted to be a hostel. - Not really in a great area to visit the city. - Good enough to be picked up to go to San Blas and supermarkets around. - Staff is not friendly at all. So, don't expect anything but the necessary. - For a night it's OK.

    When we arrived our room was not ready, we had to wait for it to be prepared. We had booked a double bed, but got two bunk beds instead. That being said, the staff were super helpful, breakfast was good, and the place was very clean.

    My only complain is that when departing early in the morning to fly back home, there was no one to open the door, consequently I felt like trapped and couldn't get out. The entrance or exit of any or every facility where tourists, travellers or visitor reside must be accessible without any blocking whatsoever. The owner of this Hostel promised me to be there in the early morning, however, she did not keep her promise and I take this flaw very serious, suppose it was an emergency like FIRE!
