The hostel is located in the beautiful Casco Viejo, it was very easy to find and there's a lot to do near the hostel. The beds were a bit squeaky, but that wasn't really a problem. The curtains in front of each bed is a plus because there are a lot of people leaving early in the morning to go...

It’s a very nice place. Very good location, located in Casco Viejo, you can go everywhere on foot and close to downtown. The people are friendly and speak in English (It makes difference in Panama City). They have a good lounge to hang out where visitors can know each other’s. The place and the bathrooms are clean and organized. We...

After a very long trip from Home we got a bad welcome by the night guard who should help us as the receptionist told us by email. After another guest talked in Spanish with him he finally helped us but not with pleasure. Till 3:30 am a lot of noise from other guests. The location is pretty good though and...

Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend. Staff were very helpful and friendly! We felt very welcome. The building is very old and beautiful, laden with character, artefacts and artwork. The dorm was comfortable with good storage and bunks afford good privacy with built in curtains. Breakfast is included in the price of your stay too! Location is excellent...

Arrived in PC just for one night and this place came recommended by a friend. From the reviews I read seemed like a good choice. When I arrived this evening Yvonne, the front desk girl checked me in quickly and also helped me with all my needs which was calling my shuttle for early pickup, sending me to the store...

Luna castle is really well located, in the casco viejo, and a cool place to stay if you are looking for parties and wanting to meet people. However, it might be a little bit noisy if you are looking for a place to rest

Easy to find location, neat old building, friendly staff, and great prices at the bar in the basement. Make sure to get a room that is upstairs; the rooms downstairs are loud at night from the bar. A great place to meet great people!

This place has the nicest staff. We had a decent room. There were no windows and it was super small, but it did the job and was really quiet. There are great rooms with windows, but they are right above the bar area. The coolest part was the ambience and location. The place feels like an old mansion. You can...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in a Spanish colonial mansion built upon the water’s edge. Luna’s Castle Hostel attracts those who seek the ideal Panama City backpacking experience. Following Captain Morgan’s plunder of Panama Vieja in 1671, stones from the ruins were used to construct the massive walls of Casco Viejo.
