“Great Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

The staff were so friendly and helpful they helped us find a local Guide for hiking Volcan Baru and were always smiling. Good value rooms with hot water, wifi & comfy beds. You can see Volcan Baru from outside the hostel. Volcan is quite spread out but you can walk along the road to whatever you need and there is a bus stop outside to get to Cerro Punta, David & Costa Rica border. Highly recommended for a budget option

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2009

After a disappointing stay at Hotel Don Tavo the night before, we checked in to the Hostal Brisas de California (a couple of hundred meters further along the road) on the 25th February 2009. We found this charming little place the day before while we were out walking and instantly regretted having booked into the Hotel Don Tavo.

On the main road is the restaurant, Loco Pollo, and behind it is the Hostal. You enter through a locked gate on the side street. Mariella and Efram(?) are the owners and they run the Hostal. The guest rooms are extremely secure. For a room with private bathroom, a double bed, a single bed and a television, we paid $20 a night. They also provide linen and towels. Guests also have a cooker and kitchen implements, and a fridge to use, and loads and loads of friendliness from the owners.

The room we had was cozy but completely sufficient for our needs - we were in town to see the sights afterall - and the shower in our bathroom had the absolute best water pressure we had experienced in Panama so far. The water was mucho caliente (Hotel Don Tavo could learn from that!), the beds were pretty comfortable and there is relaxed feeling about the place.

Now, please bear in mind that this is not the Ritz. It is basic home-style accommodation, but the Hostal Brisas de California does it well. You can stay down the road at the Hotel Don Tavo, pay twice the price for lukewarm showers and lots of noise. There are barking dogs around the Hostal too, but unfortunately that seems to be life in Panama.

But unlike some of the other accommodations in which we had stayed we actually felt that we mattered to Mariella and Efram - they are truly wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to make sure we were happy and comfortable and that makes me want to recommend these truly warm and wonderful Panamians to travellers who have the good fortune to visit Volcan.

Say hi Mariella, Efram and their little dog, Dumbo, from us!
