    I loved it! There is not one thing I bad I can say about this place. The location is great since you have delicious and beautiful restaurants and cafes a few blocks away. Casco Viejo’s architecture is beautiful as well. The tour company Paradise Green Panama made our trip more pleasant. Luis is usually at the Lobby so you can book anything very easily.

    the hostel is has everything you need. the noise isn’t as bad as people are claiming, and the staff is very friendly despite what others have commented. they even provide ear plugs if you’re that light of a sleeper. this was my second stay here, and would definitely recommend.

    i originally booked a dorm room bed, when i arrived the staff gave me a complimentary free upgrade to a private room and a free drink. they do have very strong and fast wifi, clean rooms and bathrooms, everything was cleaned daily. the staff was very friendly and helpful. they have many social activities, night club in the basement, bistro on the first floor, cinema/library on 3rd, and a restaurant/bar on rooftop with great views and a pool. i ended up extending my stay here, very enjoyable.

    The best place in Casco Viejo with an incredible rooftop. The snacks in the entrance are ridiculously expensive!! Also the bathrooms just need to have some maintenance

    Pretty solid place. The building is absolutely beautiful, with a great lobby and restaurant, a very relaxing library and of course the rooftop with the pool and bars looking at the city skyline. The dorm I stayed in was alright, the shared bathrooms were clean, so I was happy with that. Overall, it's not the best hostel ever, but the value you get for the price you pay is pretty good.

    Good location and room. It can get loud at the bar and you can definitely hear it from your room. I rented towels for a $5 deposit (you get $4 back when you return them) but we left early in the morning and the person at the front desk said “the till wasn’t open yet” and so scammed us out of our deposit. No warning that there were “open” till hours. Just $8 but still leaves a bad taste.

    the Selina reception staff very unfriendly. The welcome was poor, they took little interest and I immediately felt like a numbe.. They could have done more to explain about the hostel, facilities. There was even a free welcome drink which they didn’t tell me about. The hostel itself is nice but more like a hotel. As a solo traveller it was hard to meet people although I did on the walking tour. The bar was great but open to anyone. The hostel isOverpriced. I’d stay elsewhere & come for the party

    We arrived at check in. Did not get any information about the area, things to do, informtion about the hostel. They gave us our room number and we had to go there by our self and find a free bed. When we came to the room there were only two out of three beds avalible. We told them right away and one guy came with us to check, told us he would fix a bed. Ended up waiting four hours and still no bed so we had to tell them again, another lady went with us. She tried to organize something and gave us the option

    Such a great location which made up for everything else that happened. Paid and booked my hostel and upon arrival was told they never received my booking and were sold out. Took a while but somehow managed to get a dorm room. Other then that staff was not great, nor very helpful. Rooftop was very fun and hostel was clean especially the kitchen. Because it felt more like a hotel as a solo traveller it made it very difficult to meet people.
