We spent a layover night at Hotel Casco Antiguo and were just looking for a place to sleep for a few hours before catching the bus back home to Boquete. It is not a hotel, it is hostel caliber. It is very basic, fairly clean but spartan and a bit run down. We had a private room with bathroom, the bed was worn but comfortable enough, the linens also worn but clean. There is no AC and the ceiling fan kept us cool enough but during the day, the room would have been unbearably hot. The wifi was weak. There is no insulation in the walls or doors and the night was very noisy with travelers talking and laughing most of the night. Overall it was worth the relatively inexpensive price for Casco Viejo (standard for hostel price) since we just needed a place to crash and weren't using it for anything else. It borders the sketchier part of Casco and caution should be exercised when walking around.
