Nice family run hostel: basic but clean room, good breakfast and a nice garden to relax. We stayed for three nights and would come again. English speaking staff, city center is easily reached by metro-buses

Casa de Carmen (= Panama House) is a bit further from the main city tourist traps - therefore if you visit just for a couple of days and would like to see the most important parts of the city, it might be better to pick a hostel in Casco Viejo.

I enjoyed my stay here. Staff spoke English and were very professional. The manager Emma is very nice and polite. They have a laundry room that guests can use and a beautiful backyard to chill out. Rooms were clean and its pretty close to everything u want to be close to in Panama City. I would definitely stay here again.

“The private room with shared bathrooms are basically just like having a private bathroom except that it's out in the hall. When you use it, you can lock the door and have all the privacy you want. And there are other bathrooms so you don't have to worry about someone else's emergency.”
