Hostel Mamallena features an outdoor swimming pool, bar, a shared lounge and garden in Panama City. Featuring a tour desk, this property also provides guests with a terrace. The accommodation offers a 24-hour front desk, airport transfers, a shared kitchen and free WiFi throughout the property. Comfortable and spacious rooms, nice hang out and pool area, and friendly atmosphere at the hostel. Breakfast is good, and you can have as many pancakes as you want. Staff is friendly, and has lots of great tips for what to do in the city. It's maybe not in the best location if all you want to see is downtown, or the old town (Casco Viejo) area, but it's great to see a more authentic, modern part of what life in Panama city is like, and it's within walking distance to Ancon Hill and Casco Viejo, and uber is super cheap to get anywhere else.
