Great location on Punta Pacifica, close to malls and public transportation. Staff was very friendly and helped with orientation to the city, transportation, calling uber for me and allowing me a late check out.

Great place to stay no matter what age.
Brilliant hostel to stay in. Staff super friendly and helpful. We were the oldest there 55 and 67, but we had a great time and met some lovely people. Would recommend staying here. It was close to all main places. Even had a swimming pool. We had a private room with our own bathroom. Breakfast supplied was banana pancakes which you cooked yourself. Coffee and water was also supplied.

Staff very friendly and the laundry service is really a plus. It's a very noise area and the music that they generally play, is loud and some times not pleasant

Single women staying one night
My first time staying in a hostel. Had arranged for a taxi, but found my way there. Staff were wonderful, my room was basic and clean. Bed was fine, shower worked well. Breakfast was pancakes you make for yourself. Really appreciated the shopping plaza around the corner. My taxi to go to the airport was even 10 minutes and waited as again the staff helped me bring down my bags. Overall a very nice, clean place to stay!!

close to Ferry Las Perlas
This was a nice location for me getting into Panama City late Saturday night. Was able to check in at 11p walk to the supermarket to load up on groceries that night. The next morning was able walk to the Trump hotel to catch the early Sunday morning Ferry Las Perlas to Isla Saboga. Breakfast not available for us early risers which was a disappointment but it did have free WiFi
