This is what Lonely Planet says . . .'Lunas Castle is, bar-none, the best backpacker spot in Panama City. Housed in a creaky, colonial mansion near the waters edge, Lunas Castle blends historic Spanish architecture with funky, laid-back backpacker vibes. Although its the newest accommodation in the capital, the owners winning formula of professional service, international atmosphere and shoestring prices are sure to make this a legendary stop on the Gringo Trail.

This is what we say . . . Imagine living in a restored centuries old mansion. The ceilings are lofted, the wood carvings are originals, and the ocean view is unobstructed. The three-tiered, reclined seating movie theater shows the latest releases. Art adorns every wall in the hostel. Couches are throughout, hammocks constantly swing, and the coffee is bottomless.

The staff is the best of the best. They will help you organize a trip to San Blas, sailboats to Colombia, bus rides to Bocas del Toro and, of course, recommend the finest that Panama City has to offer.

If you are looking for a chill hostel, you have found it. If you are looking for an easy place to meet tons of other travelers, you have found it. And if you feel like closing out your evening with a cocktail, the bartenders in Relic (the bar in the outdoor courtyard), will mix it up for you.

We hope you enjoy it!

From both the airport and the bus station:

Tell the taxi: Lunas Castle en Casco Viejo, despues del mercado publico se sube la rampa y dobla a la derecha, Lunas Castle es la segunda casa a la derecha. Es un edificio verde.'

In English. 'Luna's Castle is located in Casco Viejo. When heading to Casco Viejo, enter on the side of the old public market. Go up the ramp to enter Casco Viejo, turn right and Luna's Castle will be the second building on the right. It is green.'
