Property Description

Bambu Hostel is your best option in David, Panama and has the best atmosphere and facilities. Bambu staff are experienced travelers, friendly and helpful.

There are 4 different sleeping options, good free WIFI covering the entire property, a large outdoor fully equipped kitchen and free coffee in the morning.

The huge garden is tranquil, an urban oasis, with a crystal clear swimming pool, and is surrounded by lush tropical plants and flowers and fruit trees that guests are invited to graze. Bambu has the 'jungle vibe in the city', complete with wild animals and exotic birds and plenty of hammocks.  
 
Also the location is ideal, a 5 minute walk to 24 hour supermarkets, ATM, shopping, good cheap restaurants, and the best seafood shack in Panama is directly in front of the hostel. Not to mention professional baseball, Salsa Dancing and within an 30-60 minutes, hot-springs, mountain village of Boquete, and big wave beaches.

It’s fine if you have to spend the night in David, but lower your expectations. We had to share a bunk bed because one of the beds was too dirty to sleep in. Bare minimum you get for what you pay.

The owner is really nice. Paid extra for a room with AC but it was on 36 degrees when I woke up (?) It felt as if we were walking into a family house rather than a hostle, which has it's pro's & con's. Kitchen was okay, but not a lot of equipment. For one night it was fine

The hostel is located a bit outside the city. I liked the outside area. The pool was also nice and had nice lights at the evening! The man at the reception had no change when I wanted to pay. There are a lot of cameras so I felt a bit observed (eg. in kitchen!). The fridge and kitchen should be cleaned, as there is not much space, everything was stuffed. I think with more care of the area/rooms it could become a really nice hostel. Quite cheap though.
