This hostel gave us a great experience. We got the biggest dorm on The second floor, which is The best dorm we have stayed in so far. Huge spacious room with our own balcony. The other dorms we're not nearly as Nice, but i make my review out of my experience 🎯. Wifi is Working everywhere, breakfast is nothing special,...

I stayed here a few weeks ago. I paid for a private room with a shared bathroom. Both were pretty clean . The lady at the front desk spent about an hour answering all my questions and was extremely helpful. If I'm in the area again I would definitely stay here again. They serve here a basic breakfast but was...

Good price and nice beds. The staff is friendly. The main problem is that there is not enough space for all the people, the kitchen is very small and during breakfast the space is really limited. Still a good budget option.

The first thing you have to know about this place is that it is a BUDGET BACKPACKER hostal, and if you go in with that expectation you should be fine. The price is inexpensive, and one of the most affordable in the area, but because of this expect basic amenities. The rooms are fairly bare, and they could use another...

The location of the hostel is great if you want to be right in Casco Viejo...it's a short walk to everywhere. Another positive was the service on reception: friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little grim, and the bathrooms could do with a clean, but if you're on a tight budget it's an alright place to stay. Don't expect...

Stayed here for a couple nights after doing the san blas tour as it was quite cheap and within the old town. The price of a dorm wasn't bad $11 per night including breakfast etc but the standard of the hostel is pretty poor.. Rooms were dirty and not well kept, my room had damp alone one of the walls...

This accommodation almost made us regret going to Panama. It took us forever to find the place, we had to pay some guys on the street $3 to park on the curbside ... and this even before getting to the property. Surprise - I have never seen sheets that old (you were able to see the mattress through them), never...

All we wanted was somewhere cheap to spend a few nights that had a decent location. And thats all we got. The hostel was filthy, especially the kitchen. The showers were cold (And I mean cold. There wasn't even a hot tap). The bed was a bad, thin mattress on a really dodgy frame that felt like it was about...

I stayed here solo a few years ago. It's not the cleanest/most updated hostel but I preferred it to Luna because of the atmosphere. The travelers at Hospedaje Casco Viejo were not so many backpackers on the party tour as more mature travelers with interesting stories to share over a beer on the patio. The kitchen space is great and...
