This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We are a retired couple who have stayed in many hostles in many countries over the years and we would highly recommend the Panamerican to budget travelers.

The Good: Friendly staff. Good coffee, available all day. Hot water 24 hours. Great WiFi - accessible from our room. Spacious room with French doors to a balcony overlooking the park. Overhead fan. Great, safe location.

The Not So Good: The building is concrete and inherently noisy. Normal conversation, which sometimes goes quite late, carries up to the rooms. We found it necessary to use earplugs to allow us to sleep through it.
