    As the description said, it really did feel more like a hotel than a hostel which was a nice change of pace. Friendly staff and clean facilities with onsite food/drinks but definitely not the hostel to choose if you want to socialize and meet other travelers. Close to a handful of restaurants and about a 30 minute walk down balboa to Casco Viejo.

    Super happy with our stay at Panama Hat, good location especially lovely to be able to run along the waterfront so easily in mornings. Basic but tasty breakfast, comfy bed, spacious room and great daily cleaning. FYI only not negatives: wifi doesn't extend to rooms and you can't use the kitchen space to self cater - leading to salad dinners on the front porch This is a quiet hostel - highly recommend if that's what you're looking for

    Don’t be fooled by the images of many people at the front of this place, they’re from the restaurant below, not from the hostel. The area closes about 11pm, opens the next day 10 am. Chairs & Tables locked up. The other social area is a small kitchen with 2 tables. I booked 4 days, left after 2 because of a bad Odor in dorm, forfeited my remaining money. Limited electric outlets to charge phones. Can’t sit up fully in bed or your head will hit bottom of top bed. $1.00 to rent lock for lockers.

    It is an ok hostal. The hostal is far away from the center (the description of distance is absolutely not accurate!), so if you prefer to have a place closer to "action", you should take another one. Staff is ok, but would be amazing to get some better information about the city and accurate information about transport in general. The rooms are clean and big. The kitchen is enough equiped for a normal use.
