Just stayed two nights and barely spend any time there but still they made me feel like 'one of the guys' and totally part of the Villa Vento surf family. Will recommend it as it is all you need in panama city (great location by the way. and a pool. need I say more?)

The hostel was a good place to start our trip. It is located in a really safe area in the middle of Panama City. It´s a bit away from the nice old town, but that doesn´t matter so far. The staff is helpful and friendly. In the morning it was nice to start the day with pancakes and coffee. The...

This place was awesome it is very clean and I met many friends here. The staff was very helpful and gave me tips on how to travel across the rest of the country. I felt very comfortable and safe here and it is a perfect spot to go in proximity to the airport.

I came to villa vento for one day and ended up staying for almost a week!

Carlos, Carmelo, Charlie and Daniel are helpful with any questions you...

Great stay in a well-organised hostel with incredibly friendly and helpful staff. In a good location, close to transport and amenities and great food available from the cafe in front. Air conditioning could have been a little cooler but the rooms were still comfortable.
