TravelPod Member ReviewsMedia Luna Hostel Cartagena
Luna's Castle is located right in the heart of Casco Viejo, which is the old city of Panama. We arrived, looking to get some info on a sailing trip to Colombia, and were greeted by the skipper of one of the boats right after we arrived. The hostel is 3 stories high, and has a bar down in the basement level. It's a cool bar, but plays very loud music pretty late at night, so if you're staying there, and want some quite, I would recommend getting a room up on the top floor. Ours was right above the bar, so the thud of bass was rather constant all night...Cool place, one of the liveliest we visited so far. If you're looking for a sailing boat to Colombia, this is a great place to find one. They have tons of info!
