Let's call a duck a duck. This place is AWFUL. If you really can't find somewhere better to stay for a similar price, take the bullet and book here (I think any somewhat decent short-term property rental would be better than this). The owners, or whoever they were, were about an hour late to pick us up from the originally...

May be quite expensive for Panama, but I'm guessing it would be hard...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Rooms were comfortable, clean, and nice. Bathrooms (shared) very clean and good shower. The owner is very easygoing. Location was also very good, very close to Via España. A lot of restaurants in walking distance. Really a good deal for the money.

I stayed in Los Faroles Hostel in a great neighborhood in Panama City near Via Veneto and Via Espana. The hostel is well run, with very clean rooms and hot water. It had a shared bathroom separate for men and women. The air conditioning worked well and the room was sparsely furnished with a bunk bed adequate for two. I...
