I have stayed in Magnolia Inn a few times during my 3weeks stay in Panama! The dorms are very clean, the matresses good and although you are right in the middle of casco viejo, it is very quiet & you get a good night's sleep... The staff was also very nice & supportive - they have organised my trip to...

I did enjoy my stay in this big but spacious dormitory with many windows, in the middle of Casco Viejo, it is very well situated. For me, Panama is not a place to spend too much time but I will go back to Magnolia's

We stayed in one of the 3 penthouse suites. This is an unusual place as it has hostel rooms below and then a few en suite rooms and then the rooms on top. Our room was fabulous, much nicer than the one at the Tantalo on our initial week. There is no bar or restaurant but the room is large...

We spent two nights here - one in room 2b where the generous two beds were extremely spacious although the bathroom was across the hall. We returned a few days later and treated ourselves to a last night of the holiday in penthouse room 3a. This was a beautiful double with a big bed, breakfast bar and seating area plus...

Magnolia Hotel is a good hotel. Hotel rooms are spacious and clean. Because it is partly also a hostel, it has a nice mixture of guests. The communal area has a kitchen and tv, and gives the opportunity to chat with other guests. Staff is friendly. Location perfect, in lovely casco viejo, with lots of nice restaurants and the harbour...

We travelled as a family group of 7, including teenagers. It was a great experience, and the teens liked being connected to the hostel. Clean and well organized. There was a problem with air conditioning, but once we mentioned it, a satisfactory resolution was found very quickly. Street parking was tight (as we rented a car to see the country)...

We stayed in a private room and couldn't have been happier. Great value, really clean and comfortable. Fabulous location in the old town and was quiet at night too. Great place to stay for a few days in Panama City.
