With the short duration of one night I should only give you my first impressions. I thought I had lost my wallet and digital camera, 2 hours later I found them both still sitting in a hammock chair beside two other people. This Hostel was worth every penny; Beautiful garden, Comfortable common areas, great location, two fridges in the large...

This hostel is located at a very easy-to-access place in the city and is in an adorable house that is one of the only houses still on this block (that has not been turned into a high-rise). There are always interesting and friendly people around and the staff is helpful and friendly as well. Their outdoor tables & seating areas...

Hostel Urraca was very nice. Coffee available all day and very nice areas to relax and pretty central. Staff didn´t speak english and my Spanish is awful but it isn´t hard to ask for a beer. The only downside was our room. My wife and I had a private room, the "San Blas" room, which when we entered for the...

I was here only one night. Got really friendly welcome even they didn't spoke so well English. I especially liked how hostel was created to be colorful (walls etc.). Room was small but OK. Great value for money. It is close to sea and close is also El Jardin Vegetariana where you can find lot vegetarian and vegan food.

We are not a fan of shared bathrooms but they keep it clean. The hostel has a lovely atmosphere and nice garden to have a cold beer. Centrally located, staff was very friendly, would go back as as it is worth the (little) money.

Dear guest you review should be posted in the Hostel Urraca page not in the one for Posada 1914. Sorry but this is a fake comment. This guest never stayed at my hostel because we open in 2014, his stay was 2012 so this is a FAke!!!

Average hostel with all the basics you'd expect for this price range. Beds are not overly comfortable and you have to get up very early for hot water showers. There is no information available for things to do around the city and the staff speak no English so brush up on your Spanish if you plan to stay here.

I stayed 1 week at Hostal Urraca and found it to be an excellent lodging. Upon my arrival at 3:20AM in Panama Airport, the son of the hostal owner met me within minutes of clearing customs. It was well worth arranging transportation with the hostal, rather tan worrying about taking a taxi at that early hour of the morning. The...

Bring CASH...they do not currently take Plastico. Notes for Travellers with Mobility Challenges: I had a broken foot when I arrived, and one of the Front Desk Staffers who speaks excellent English is a former Nurse at Hospital Nacional...she saved me an Emergency room visit, and hooked me up directly with a great English speaking Doc at the Orthopedic Clinic...

A pleasant surprise awaits among tall office buildings and residential high rises. The hostel is well situated in a safe area of Panama City in Bella VIsta with easy access to everything. Single rooms do not have air conditioners but with fans. It took a while getting used to a small single room as initially it felt like sleeping in...

A real hostel for young people who don't care about the paint on the walls. Shared kitchen, shared bathrooms, barbecue area, free internet, free coffee and toast in the morning. Lots of people everywhere at all times, but all quiet enough. Very relaxed atmosphere. We had two young ladies come into our room during the night (with their own key...
