Panamericana Hostel
Reviewed 20 May 2014

The Panamerican hostel has high ceilings in every room, which was a relieve after having spent some nights in a crampy room. A bit strange are the open parts above every door and the drapes are fairly bright. They should come up with a better way of opening the balcony doors of the rooms. All in all a fair deal. Bring your earplugs and you will be fine. Some more chairs on the very nice rooftop terrace would be great.

Yes, people complain about the noise, but it is a hostal, what did you expect? The rooms are good, we got one with a big balcony in front of the Plaza Herrera. The location is excellent! We stayed there for over a week and could walk to the Balboa strip after roaming around the beautiful Casco Viejo area. You are also near the seafood market and many great restaurant you can not miss! The staff is really helpful and the roof terrace is a good place to see the city. Good value for your money, I would definitely stay there again! Thanks for a nice experience!!!

Perfect location in Casco Viejo. Large and clean dorms with great lockers. Good hang out wether on the rooftop or inside. There is even warm water to shower. The kitchen is spacious and perfect to make your own breakfast or dinner.
Don't forget to go to the fish market for lunch. You can walk along the shore from the hostel and you'll find it.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for two nights and it was overall pretty good. The location was perfect, right in center of old town.

We had a private room with private bathroom which had lockers and felt very safe.

The downside was the location of the room as it shared a wall with the floors shared bathroom which made it very noisy (think hearing people pee and slamming doors)

Staff was friendly, wifi was good (different networks for different parts of hostel) and it offered breakfast though it ended a bit early so we never made it on time.

A big plus is that they allowed us to crash in the common room upon arrival at 3 am from Costa Rica.

The double room was very simple but acceptable - literally just two beds and old school-like lockers. The socket was very loose and difficult to use. The bathroom in the corridor was okay and quite clean.
We received PBJ sandwiches, coffee and fruit for breakfast free of charge.
The hostel provides a computer with internet access which is great but unfortunately the wi-fi didn't work on the top floor.
Overall, it was pretty good value for money although nothing shockingly great.

We visited here in December 2013 and had a great time. The location is perfect. The price was great too for the time of year. Our room was clean. Some rooms have a bathroom. Ours had one and the ceiling fan and open windows made helped to keep the rooms cool. Since it's a hostel, it's not the quietest, but after midnight, the noise wasnt an issue. There is a nice kitchen and lounge area for everyone to use and awesome rooftop deck. We felt that our belongings were safe at all times. Staff is very friendly and the artwork on the walls added a nice colorful and spunky touch. If I go back to PC, I would stay again.

This place was so great. Best roof top patio chill zone in Casco viejo. The dorms were huge and airy and with French doors opening to a patio the room felt breezy, clean and quite beautiful. The private room was average, but nice enough. Staff was helpful and there is coffee and breakfast. This is a great location, and the roof top is absolutely incredible on a warm breezy night. The location is great and the I much preferred the relaxed atmosphere of this hostel compare to Luna's castle, a loud party hostel.
