Panama: Hostels

Miami of the South

Panama Hostels

Panama City and the surrounding region has one of the highest number of hostels of any city in Central America and there is a huge choice of location and standards for holidaymakers. The largest concentration of hostels in Panama City can be located in and around the city centre in San Felipe or Balboa, but there are also many excellent establishments in El Cangrejo and Bella Vista. Facilities available to holidaymakers range from dorms with mod-cons, ensuite and cooking areas to plain rooms with just a few bunks. Some Panama City hostels have set times for checking in, although nearly all allow 24-hour access once you have paid. Prices start from $10 but go up to nearer $16 during summer periods and can fluctuate throughout the year.
