  • Spent 4 nights there and had nothing to complain about. If you are looking for a cool, relaxed hostel in Panama city, you make no mistake by picking this one. Just don't do the city tour they offer, not worth the money (25+15 for the canal entry), better do it on your own.

  • Nice pool even though I missed my chance to use it due to rain. Bathrooms were plentiful and quite nice with all tile and plenty of legroom. I would stay here again if I return to Panama City so I can truly experience it.

  • The best thing was the great staff, they were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was a bit dull with only pancakes, sirup and coffe. I would have loved some jam, cream and milk to come with it. Small rooms but clean and nice. Absolutely value for money!

  • Without going into specifics, the staff at Villa Vento are genuine and helpful. Facilities are nice and feel cozy accompanied with a positive open minded atmosphere made for a great stay. Thank y'all again, I am stoked to get back thru Panama City and this hostel has a lot to do with it.

  • We wanted to go to San Blas, and the owner a Venezuelan told us at 7 pm that we were not able to book for the next day when they only need to call the driver, I mean he even prohibited the front desk girl to do it, just in order to we stay one more night, So at the next day in order to dont stay there any more we walked in the same block and found El Machico, is a looot better, much cleaner and organized and they even book for us the trip to san blas with no issues
