I stayed here on the first and last night of a 4 week trip to Panama; each time I was warmly welcomed and was helped out with my travel logistics. The first night my luggage arrived late; the airline delivered it after midnight. Alva, one of the owners, dealt with that while I slept (comfortably in a private room with...

This youth-hostel type B&B in the middle of Panamá city is suitable for backpackers and families alike. While the room we had was rather small it was totally sufficient for our purpose: very clean and cozy. Towels formed into swan shape. The breakfast buffet a delight below Mango trees with delicous Mangos. Very, very nice personel! Affordable to everyone.

Nice quiet place to stay in a crazy town. It not located close to the attractions but they are a short and cheap cab ride away. We stayed in the triple room. There was really great AC, wonderful breakfast and a cute little backyard. The staff were really nice and helpful.

A great budget option in Panama City. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful and the dormitories and communal areas are spotlessly clean. I met lots of friendly travellers during my stay at Panama House, though this is not a party hostel and it is fairly quiet by around 10pm which suited me well. Please be aware that there...

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of our Panama adventure, and one night at the very end. Every single person we dealt with was extremely helpful, with a special shoutout to one of the night clerks, Eisenhower, who helped us utterly graciously with a couple of minor issues. When we left with our big suitcases, one of the...

The people here were so friendly and because the owners live here with their little girl and baby on the way, it felt very homey. The place is clean and the breakfast is pretty good. The rooms are pretty standard, but definitely sufficient. The clientele was also diverse- you saw a range of different nationalities of all ages.

“The private room with shared bathrooms are basically just like having a private bathroom except that it's out in the hall. When you use it, you can lock the door and have all the privacy you want. And there are other bathrooms so you don't have to worry about someone else's emergency.”
