Luna’s Castle Hostel
|On Site Relic Bar Lonely Planet´s Authors Pic: “Wildly popular with travelers and hip young panamanians, this cavernous hostel bar knows the right thing at the right time. Service is friendly and patrons easily mingle in the ample courtard with shared picnic tables. Not only are you outside (a rarity in Panama City bars) but you´re partying next to the historic wall of the city”.
HostelWorld.com’s Hoscar Winner Best Hostel in Panama 2010 & 2011: “Housed in a creaky, colonial mansion, Luna´s Castle blends historic Spanish Colonial architecture with funky, laid-back backpacker vibes. Ample dorms are stacked with bunks and the shared bathrooms get frecuently scrubbed. Perks include internet, laundry service and a basement movie house showing your favorite flicks. A bit loony and very friendly, this is the kind of hostle people keep talking about long after their trip ends.
Chosen as the author’s pick for Lonely Planet Panama 2007: “From the twisted minds that brought you Mondo Taitu and Hostel Heike in Bocas del Toro, Luna’s Castle is, bar-none, the best backpacker spot in Panama City. Housed in a creaky, colonial mansion near the water’s edge, Luna’s Castle blends historic Spanish architecture with funky, laid-back backpacker vibes. Although it’s the newest accommodation in the capital, the owner’s winning formula of professional service, international atmosphere and shoestring prices are sure to make this a legendary stop on the Gringo Trail.”
