Magnolia Inn is a decent place to stay. A bit of a mixed place with backpackers and decent hotel rooms, but a good place to start your trip from. It lacks personal charm, but staff is helpful and location is lovely.

After our exhaustive trip to San Blas, we ended up back in Casco Viejo. Everywhere we checked was booked, but we had heard really great things about Magnolia Inn so we decided to drop in and try our luck. Reggie was at the front desk when we arrived and gave us an awesome deal on the penthouse room. The room was clean, the view was great, and the service was absolutely fantastic. We didn't get to spend a lot of time in the Inn, but we did walk around - very charming place. I would absolutely recommend Magnolia Inn to anyone staying in Casco Viejo.

This place is in the centre of town, good for meeting other travellers, sharing some beers and having a good night whilst not being a party hostel. The party hostel as well as some good bars are just around the corner so it was a perfect place to return home to once we were partied out and ready for sleep. The dorm beds are comfy with ther own lockers, power sockets and lamps and had stairs in between each set of two so the too bunk could be accessed even when drunk without waking up the entire dorm room. Staff were friendly and the kitchen was large and fully stocked. They also have hotel type rooms for those on holiday and happy to pay more. I can Happily recommend this place.

I stayed in the hostel section but, I gotta say, the people were great there. It's not a party hostel so you actually get sleep while being located right in the center of the the best part of Panama City, Casco Viejo.

The staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. They made some good suggestions on places to visit and also restaurants. There was always fresh coffee waiting when I rolled out of bed (important!) and I was able to store my luggage for a short time while I traveled to the San Blas Islands, which I really appreciated. Overall, I recommend this hostel wholeheartedly!

Magnolia Inn is in a great location in Casco Viejo. My family and I stayed in a room on the top floor that easily accommodated the four of us. The room was great and gave us great views of the bay and the Panama City skyline. The only complaint I would have about the place is that Casco Viejp can be loud on weekends. If you are looking for a tranquil place this is not the place.

We recently stayed in one of the private rooms at Magnolia Inn. The room was clean, spacious and had all amenities. The staff were awesome and so helpful. They made great recommendations for restaurants, bars and activities. Casco Viejo was a good area to stay at in the city. Lots of beautiful architecture and things to see. Definitely stay here if you are visiting Panama City!
