Villa Vento Surf is one of the best hostels I've stayed in whilst travelling through Central America. Great vibe, super helpful/friendly staff that made you feel very welcome. It is one of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in on my travels and I would absolutely recommend anyone to stay here whilst in Panama City!!

Casco viejo is a short uber away. The 8 person dorm rooms are not locked. There are big lockers in the storage room for each of the beds. Bathrooms...

Just stayed two nights and barely spend any time there but still they made me feel like 'one of the guys' and totally part of the Villa Vento surf family. Will recommend it as it is all you need in panama city (great location by the way. and a pool. need I say more?)

This Hostel is super clean and in a safe area of Panama. Stuff is nice and always helps you if you have any question. The common area is perfect to relax and the pool is amazing because you can refresh after a walk in the city. By taxi or uber its just 7min to the old town or a 30min...

This place was awesome it is very clean and I met many friends here. The staff was very helpful and gave me tips on how to travel across the rest of the country. I felt very comfortable and safe here and it is a perfect spot to go in proximity to the airport.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Hostel Villa Vento Surf! A great place to meet other travellers. Our hostel is located in the beautiful and safe neighborhood of Marbella. We have a swimming pool in our garden, a great lounge where you can watch TV (new 50 plasma), listen to music, drink a beer. and just relax! Also we organize fun activities during the week. We offer the perfect balance between a fun and a relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are separated from the social areas for those who want an early night. We want you to feel like a traveller here, and not a tourist. You can come at any time (24 hours reception) and if the rooms are not ready yet, you can relax in the social areas. Last but not least, we arrange trips to San Blas and sailing trips to Cartagena! ... more   less
