My experience overall was good until I realized the day after I left there is $200 missing from my money belt. I called Oswald (the owner) and informed him of the situation. Without giving me the benefit of the doubt he right away accused me of losing the money and that he trusts his housekeeper Veronica who has been working for him for over 2 years. I never mentioned to him that I suspect Veronica. I guess this is a common occurane there and he has a speech prepared for these situations. I would've gone to the police but was already in Colon ready to sail to Colombia. If you stay at this hostel make sure your room is never left unattended with your valuables!
