Taxis are easy to find at Albrook Bus Terminal. The journey is 10 to 15 minutes depending on the time of day. You should agree a price with the driver before starting the journey as taxis in Panama do not have meters. $5 should be the standard price to Hostel Mamallena during normal daytime hours. If you are arriving late at night, on a weekend or holiday then the price may be slightly more.

Getting to us by local bus from Albrook Terminal is easy, so long as you know where to get off. First you will need to prepaid card from inside the terminal, local buses do not take cash.

Get a bus that says VIA ESPANA on the front and tell the driver you want to get off at the ‘Hotel Venecia’.

From there cross the street and go up the hill towards Via Espana. You will pass the ‘Pio Pio’ chicken fast food shop on your right hand side. On the next corner you will see ‘Farmacias Aroccha’. This is Via Espana. With your back to ‘Farmacias Arrocha’, cross Via Espana and go up the street that is in front of you. About 50 metres up on the right handside is a white house, you’ll see our signs on the first floor of this house. Go to the second door and hit the buzzer. Say Hi and come on up.
