    Absolutely loved our stray. It’s our first stay at a Selina brand hostel and would stay again. This one specifically was awesome. The best location, unbeatable rooftop bar with food, drinks and a pool and great rooms. Honestly it’s a go-to spot for anyone looking for a h Kaye hostel experience.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Selina's layout will let you have a restful oasis in Casco Viejo, or enjoy the party right at the hostel. The rooms are clean, location is ideal for exploring the old city, and rooftop a fun time every night. Would return when in Panama City.

    Great rooms (some have balconies), nice showers. Very clean overall. Location is ideal if you want to walk around/party at night. Next to lots of restaurants/bars. They offer tours & yoga classes. The free breakfast was awesome. Dog friendly. Only street parking The rooftop pool bar is one of the best spots/views in town. It is open to the public as there is a restaurant, so on weekends it will be full and reserving a table is a must. They also have a club. Covid restrictions are minimal.

    It was my second time at selinas casco viejo..this time the put me in a big nice and clean dorm (310). Last time it was small and there was mold everywhere. So I was really happy..the dorms are not as they look on the pictures but the rest of the facilities especially the roof top is really nice. Definitely the best place to party since corona in town. Old town is also safe to walk at night..I can recommend

    I absolutely loved the location and staying in Casco Viejo. I was able to walk to great cafes and explore the “old city”. This Selina was my favorite because of the cool lounge areas to hang out. My only issues were the black mold in bathroom, loud night club above hostel, and overall difficulty meeting people traveling solo. Selinas are cool to stay at, but overall it’s hard to meet people at their hostels.

    Selina was a good place to spend my first 2 nights in Panama. Location is great and the rooftop with pool was incredible, the view is fantastic! Also nice common areas. The staff however was not friendly in my opinion. And the dorms were not super great (many lamps didn’t work, the sheets didn’t smell very fresh, pretty dark room with no air circulation and little natural light). Food & drinks are a little overpriced. Overall I’d recommend it but wouldn’t spend an entire week there.

    Selina Casco Viejo has a nice rooftop bar with a view of the city. Beds included two pillows, a sheet, comforter and dorm rooms have a private bathroom. However, there are roaches in the kitchen along with missing utensils, dorm rooms are small, there was no hot water and the lightbulbs went out in the bathroom which were repaired a day after being told, air conditioners can’t be adjusted, there’s an 8-digit code to get into the rooms, which doesn’t always work. I was able to take the Covid test

    So disappointing. This Selina is definitely not worth it. I felt gross staying here. The sheets were stained, the towels smelled bad and looked like they’d never been washed, the room was dark. My friend had to switch beds in the middle of the night because the roof leaked on him! Why is breakfast $9 at a hostel? Doesn’t make any sense.
