“Don't miss out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2011

We came for 3 days, and stayed for a week. What a great find. Centrally located,great price, beautiful grounds, great social area, nice breakfast inclued, clean and comfortable rooms. Hard to believe these are 'budget' accomodations. Mirna is a lovely host who will make sure your stay is perfect. Don't miss out!

What a great little place Dim's in Pedasi is. If you are wanting a four or five star place, this is not for you. But if you want a low cost place to stay that is comfortable and secure, then this might just be what you want. Mirna welcomes you with her smile and always wants to make sure you are doing well. Her staff is very helpful as well. Though it was just me traveling, my room had a queen bed with two singles, for less than $30 a night. I had a nice enough bathroom with hot water, and I have to say that Dim's towels were the softest ones I'd had not just in Panama but softer than ones I'd had in other countries as well. There are a couple of mountain bikes to use which I took advantage of. I rode around Pedasi (which doesn't take long) and down to Playa del Toro and it was easy and fun, even in the very hot temperature. The bike was not exactly my size and the seat hurt my butt much more than I realized, but it's just part of the adventure. Mirna arranged a boat to take five of us who met at the hostal over to Isla Iguana, and she, herself, gave us a ride to the boat ramp. Pedasi itself is a sleepy little village-town but everyone greets tourist and local alike with Buenas and Hola, and when you say goodbye, everyone says Ciao back. I always felt safe. I highly recommend Dim's, unless you want a five star kind of place. It's a really great little place to stay.

My last visit to Dim's was like my first visit, except my wife was with me on this trip. We both loved Dim's for its simplicity, charm, and friendly atmosphere. We met so many other visitors from other countries who were also returnees. The owners and staff are very attentive to your needs and they provide you with all the services that much larger establishments provide. It's a funky dive with charm that truly takes you back in time for the pleasant vibe that engulfs you. I plan on returning to Dim's in October cause it's cool like that.

This place was at one time a basic surfer's hostel, safe. social and comfortable. It has evolved into more of a B & B, with comfortable beds, clean rooms and a great breakfast and still is safe, social and comfortable. As Pedasi has expanded, so to has the price of this sort of place. Ten years ago it would have been $10 or $15 for a room and breakfast, now it is pushing $50.... and that is a competitive price. It seems to offer the best quality in the budget price range. We did not see anything else in the area that was as clean or reasonable priced.... and available. For a few $ less, you can get a place, but it will likely not be as clean and breakfast and AC, if available will probably be extra.

This is a long established hostel in Pedasi. You will love the social area in the back, especially the hammocks. Owner is extremely friendly and will even assist you with cleaning and freezing any fish you may have caught. This is a downtown location, locally owned, and an easy drive, bus, or taxi to Playa Venao.

It was an amazing experience, from the friendly staff to the excellent service and the best part, it was the most restful sleep in a long time.

The 'mingle area' under the mango tree is gorgeous. The rooms spacious and clean, you have cable TV, but it was great not to have to use any of the technology available.

The beach, the mountains are very close.

Definitely going back to have another great night sleep!

I stayed in Dims Hostel with two friends and my dog. The staff was very friendly, they have a very nice and complete breakfast. The room was clean, quiet and with a good size.
If you go to pedasi and have pets this is the place to go since there are not so many animal friendly hotels in Panama.
