    It's Panama City, not the beacn, not a ski resort. nor hiking trails, just city asphalt and it does what it's supposed to do: Cheap lodging with no frills. Cold showers (thank God it was hot!), no AC in high humidity temps (the heat was a b***h), yin and yang. On the plus side, our host was an absolute blessing, and breakfasts were served every morning. Would I go back? If I had to watch my pennies. There are some really cheap OTAs in Panama City.

    Very Good

    Room was OK, but would have had more use of a wardrobe, or at least a hanger or two for my suite, a mirror, a cabin around the toilet, proper ventilation, a mosquito screen and somewhere other than the floor to put my stuff, than a huge TV screen. Initially was unable to adjust aircon from freezing temp range. Hostel has a nice lounge and cool vibe. Very centrally located.

    I was disappointed . The host is super friendly. She answered all my question and gave me good tips. The hostel is at a great location! (3 mins walk of metro) Atm. they are renovating and the renovation work went from aprox. 7am to 10pm. The owner has a baby & dog, which both live at the hostel and the dog barks a lot and the baby screams/cries a lot.(Both of them at night too!) Also there is no warm water in the shower. there was no handsoap &it is overall a bit shabby.
