Get a metro card when you arrive and buses only cost 25cents for a trip. All the staff were really helpful and friendly, and were really good at responding to our many questions that we sent before we arrived. The breakfast was very tasty, with some fruit, a pancake, and a fried egg.

Among the facilities at this property are a 24-hour front desk and a shared kitchen, along with free WiFi throughout the property.

The hostel offers a barbecue. You can play table tennis and darts at Hostal Armonia. This is the best place in Panama City - hands down. I booked this place because I heard from friends it was the best hostel they have stayed at with really good customer service. I was shocked at how clean the hostal was and how attentive the owners and helpers all are. In Central America you do not find this kind of clean, chill, at home feel anywhere else at all! The bathrooms are well kept, the kitchen is spotless unless in use and the floors sparkle like uni-dust! I have traveled South and Central America for the past 18 months without finding a place as welcoming as this hostel is set up to be. The staff make you feel so welcome with a tour to familiarize you with the place. You walk through being greeted by most guests -truly you walk into a home away from home. The pool is super clean and refreshing with some great floaties and some pool toys to play with. I did my meditating on the rooftop “zen zone” in the morning and relaxed reading a book. The front reception has amazing baked treats for sale for a good cost and the reception is always with an attendant. The whole place is made to make you feel welcome, right down to the smell of pancakes to wake you up for a delicious breakfast! I had a choice of 3 different fruit the morning I was served my 🥞 breakfast, of course I went with a banana! The coffee was fantastic and even natural sugar cane for sweetening! I loved this place and strongly recommend it! Well worth every penny spent.
