    Such a chill little place to stay, very special if you're backpacking and you want to spend time with a great community! Everyone is so laid back — it’s gonna be hard to stay away next time I’m in Panama!

    The hostel is basic but is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and it has all the facilities you need. It is also very cheap for breakfast. Great stay overall and is even better than it looks in pictures

    nice hostel with very kind staff. however the place felt small and like it was under construction. the rooms were small and the greatest problem was the papaer thin walls. you could hear people talking as if they were next to you and especially the music which kept playing way after 10pm and 12am and you could clearly hear it in the dorms

    If you just need a cheap place to stay close to the main street it’s fine. However our dorm was very small, and the toilet/bath facilities are very tight. It’s a lot of people in a small space, but it’s a Nice atmosphere. There’s nowhere to lock your bag in, but the gate is looked everynight with a doorman

    This is lower cost and simple hostel. The largely volunteer staff is good. The building is very simple with packed rooms. They are generally clean, but limited cleaning staff so be patient. Area is close to town center and buses.

    Volunteers were so friendly and would give the people 10/10 but more biodiversity than the rainforest. You name it twinfin hostel has it. Cockroaches, frogs, BIG crabs and bed bugs. I still feel itchy writing this review. However the nice people I met there bump the review up to a solid 7.1

    We had booked here when we decided to stay an extra night in Bocas. The info was misrepresented as there were massive renovations underway in the common spaces and hallways. The staff were generally nice and helpful, however, our Private room was accessible from the main lobby and since the security is there throughout the night we could hear the playing music, drinking, and chatting until 4/5 in the morning. Our only fix was the play white noise off a speaker. Would not stay in that room again.

    The staff here is lovely. Very nice people and hard workers. It's the OWNERS I have an issue with. This whole place is falling apart and needs to be condemned. Would not recommend. I know it's cheap but TRUST ME it's not worth it. The owners need to take better care of this place and spend some money on repairs. All they care about is their bottom line, and I heard that they dont even live in panama - they live in argentina. No wonder they're removed.
