    We absolutely loved our stay here, and would come back to Panama purely to see the staff again. The room was clean and comfortable, the other guests friendly and fun. Zebula (the doggo) is a delight! It’s so close to grocery stores, restaurants, transportation and metro park. Would definitely recommend staying here!!

    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!!

    Zebulo is an amazing hostel attributable largely to the incredible owner. No question was too big or small and no time was inconvenient. The owner is knowledgeable, informative, approachable and extremely helpful. There are many resources to fit your adventure and budget, from jungle to beach and all in between. Zebulo is situated about half way on the local metro line, providing easy access to Panama City. The metro is cheap and frequent (I never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a train).

    Missed connecting flight and had to book last minute. I picked since it was close to airport & it had a private room available. Can't speak much on amenities & vibe since I left in search of food as soon as I checked-in. The owner checked me in, she was friendly and provided me with great food recommendation. Hostel seemed to have a great social scene. Room was basic but clean & had AC with a clean restroom nearby. Experience was good, I would recommend to others.

    Very Good

    Fine for a one night stopover, but private room was small and stuffy with a paper thin door and only a fan while apparently dorms had AC, so not worth the extra. Only one shower for the whole hostel as far as we could see (although to be fair we never had to wait). Nice enough social area, adorable dog but had to watch belongings or it might wander off with them! (And watch the pillows, the dog humps them...) Odd location, in hindsight we'd have been better off in Casco Viejo. Helpful staff tho!
