          Great hostel, with air con rooms and excellent breakfast - pancakes. Very sociable hostel especially for solo travellers and lots of information. Kitchen was a bit small but sufficient for what we needed

          L'hostel est assez bien placé et bien tenu. Le personnel est en général très serviable et efficace. Ils organisent les traversées en bateau pour la Colombie.

          We enjoyed our stay. The double room was tiny and dark but clean and quiet. The washroom facilities were down the hall but it was a short distance away so it was fine. The staff were excellent - very helpful. I would stay here again.

          Our family of four had the private family room. It was cramped and warm (no AC) but there were 2 fans and it was clean. We spent very little time in the room, hanging our mostly in the main open air seating area. The staff were very good - helpful and spoke english, nice for us. The kitchen had everything one wanted. The area around the hostel left little to be desired but it felt safe, just not fun and exciting. We would stay there again.

          After about 4 hours of sleep, we are off on our first day into the city. We read raving reviews about our hostel, Mamallena Backpackers, and it has not let us down. Air conditioning is our savior in this 8 person bunk room in 95 degree weather (with humidity). It is located just off the beaten path but only a $3 taxi ride anywhere in the city and …

          Unlike the other Central American cities we had been to, Panama City was a modern urban metropolis complete with impressive skyscrappers, modern shopping centres and a funky looking glass tower where each story was stacked on top of the previous layer but offset so it looked like a giant, crooked, 3D tetris game stretching up into the sky.

The week previous, we stayed in Mama Waldy which were we less than impressed with. Our four bed dorm was a shoebox without windows and the hostel was dirty too. This time around we stayed in Mamalena Hostel, which had …
