    Merci pour le superbe accueil et les très bonnes suggestions. La propriétaire connaît très bien le Panama et sait donner de bons conseils aux voyageurs. En plus, elle a une chienne trop mignonne qui adore les câlins!!

    The Hostel staff was very friendly and helpful and everything was very clean. The atmosphere was nice and cosy, as the hostel is rather small. The location was perfect for walking around the city and enjoying a good dinner in the evening. Easy to get to the old city center with an Uber.

    This hostel could be way better but it seems like they have given up. The staff was helpful even tho not much English is spoken. Cold shower that doesn’t drain wasn’t great, the WiFi is good in common area and a nice clean kitchen. The area it’s in is close to the subway and buses but that’s the only good part about this area.

    The Location fo the place is great, Jose one of the people currently working there has very good service to offer. the best thing I like about this hostel is that the bathroom can be locked up for personal use and it vas very spacious. they kept the bathrooms clean. the bathrooms are dated but clean. I am not a dog person so I did not like the presence of a dog in the hostel, I don't that the dog sleeps where the people sit or lay in the common areas, Europeans and Americans like it, I don't.
