x The average starting price for a place to stay in Panama City is £51 per night.
nbrenner The environment is pretty cool, you get to meet a lot of people from different parts of the world, but if you are not that much into partying, then you might have trouble sleeping at night (because of people coming and going from/into your room, and because of the heat (there's no AC)), fortunately it wasn't a problem for me, hehe. Anyway, I had a great time there, met some nice people and totally recommend the place.

Abe-Autumn Your first impression of this hostel is when the very friendly and excited Patrick (son of the owner) picks you up from the airport. He makes you that much more excited to be there. However, other than this home turned hostel being very close to the airport (20min) and the very helpful and accommodating Patrick, it's less than exciting and far from all the sites and nightlife. And there is nothing other than 2 grocery stores in the immediate area. The private room was basic, felt more like someone's bedroom we were staying in. We did meet some nice travelers and had a BBQ together, but it's not located in a place for any sites, nightlife or restaurants. It's an hour bus ride to the main bus terminal on the most uncomfortable bus we've been on in 6 months (but you can't beat transportation for 25 cents and awesome blaring reggaetone). From there you take a taxi to other sites like Miraflores Locks (another 15 minutes) or Casco Viejo. Taxis are very expensive, better to try and find a collectivo van for $2 each. We were only there for 3 nights, so we thought it would be better to stay near the airport. I had high hopes for a big German breakfast, but we only got eggs the first day and other than that it was white bread or thin sliced German bread (yum), deli cheese and ham, coffee and juice. Regrettably, we should have stayed downtown or in Casco Viejo. Autumn and Abe

jhonatanmaury It was great!. I took a private room, (bed, fan, air conditioning, bedside table), very comfortable. There are several bathrooms and showers for all guests. everything is clean. People from various parts of the world are here. In the lobby there is a TV with movies and sofas for everyone. Everyone was very friendly. When I return to Panama, I will stay there again. I recommend this place 100%. Jhonatan Maury

stevedale7 Luis made me feel welcome immediately. Very Kind! A great guide for Panama City! Lots of cool guests. Loved the Blueberry-flavoured wraps on the check-in counter, made me feel right at home. Definitely recommend Panama by Luis to all the hostel-loving crowd.
