Villa Vento Hostal Panama City Reviews
Great hostel in safe neighbourhood WITH POOL Jan 11, 2015
The atmosphere at this hostel is hit or miss. The first night I was here, everyone was on their phones and/or computer, the second night half were, but by the third we were all drinking beers and relaxing by the pool. I hear that this is a normal occurance with most other backpackers.
The hostel has only cold water showers, although its roughly 40 degrees C in the summer so you dont really want a hot shower. It also has air conditioning at night, which was tempormental, but overall the sleeping was comfortable and I wasnt too hot at night. The people working the desk are helpful but you have to ask, they do not volunteer information.
I would stay here again only because they have a pool and it gets pretty gross in Panama City.
NOTE, the walk to Caso Viejo is about 50 minutes, not 30 like they said - and I am a fast walker.
