Surf Hostel Panama

Fortunately, there are many hostels in Panama. Not sure what a hostel is? Let us explain a little bit.

It’s accommodations for travelers who often like to share and community life. In Panama, you can find hostels with dormitories and shared bathrooms. But also private rooms and bathrooms.

There is often a kitchen for guests to cook their own food, and sometimes a restaurant, a bar or even a swimming pool. Hostels can be of very good quality and even better than some hotels but at a reasonable price.

Surf hostels in Panama are often close to different surf spots and have a board rental service or even their own surf school and usually, these hostels offer packages. Such as accommodation, surf lessons & meal package.

What to consider

Here are some factors to consider when choosing your hostel:

  • How far is the surf spot of your accommodation?
  • How long do you want to stay?
  • What’s your budget?
  • What services do your hostel offer?
  • What are the facilities in your hostel?
  • What surf packages/accommodation your hostel offers?
  • Do you prefer a family hostel or a “party” hostel?

Let’s show you some nice hostels in Panama now 😊.

Hostel Villa Vento Surf – Panama City

You can enjoy a Hostel Villa Vento Surf whether you are in Panama City, Morillo or Santa Catalina. The three hostels are managed by people from several backgrounds who have one thing in common, they fell in love with Panama.

Morillo and Santa Catalina are good destinations for going surfing. In Villa Vento Panamanian Surf hostels in Santa Catalina and Morillo you have the choice to sleep in a dormitory or in a room with a shared bathroom or a room with a private bathroom.

Both hostels offer activities such as surfing, diving and even exploring turtles! These are not destinations surrounded by parties and clubs but where you rather get around a campfire with a cold beer 🍻.
Update: Unfortunately Hostel Villa Vento in Panama City is closed permanently.
