Hostel Mamallena is one of the longest operating hostels in Panama City, and has been rated as one of the best for many years.
We are also one of the most experienced tour providers for the San Blas Islands, having been the very first hostel to organize these trips.
Mamallena Panama City is located in one of the traditional city neighbourhoods, Perejil. It survived the wreckers ball that has seen many parts of Panama City redeveloped and has kept it’s local charm. If you’re after the glitz of the big city it might not be for you, however that can easily be found nearby. If you want to experience a real Panamanian neighbourhood, this is the place for you.
