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.

I like Bambu. It'll definitely be my go-to when passing thru David. It's basic. Clean. I felt safe. I would recommend it to my younger and more Adventress friends. It's close to a main highway (bus & taxi service) and a huge supermarket "around the corner." There's a big open air kitchen to cook your meals. It could use some organization, but you can easily get the job done! Louis is a super cool host. He's very accommodating and bilingual. 8-9/10 👍🏽

I arrived at 12am from PanCity bus. I had reserved 1 night 10bedmixed treehouse as I was taking a bus to Bocas in the AM. He stated there was no AC or even a fan as he was fixing treehouse to be a suite. He wanted me to pay the extra for an AC dorm as that would be more comfortable but I declined. Owner and staff were nice, I was given a towel and a bar of soap. I could see the owners vision for the place in his updates, very green, clean. I liked separate showers and toilets.
