Would stay again
Everything was great about this place except the loud music coming from outside (rooftop?).

Unfriendly front desk manager, no running water
This place was strange. We stayed here on two seperate instances passing through Panama City - the front desk manager was unfriendly and rude, both to us and other people who approached the desk. On our first stay (2 nights), the elevator was not functioning for an entire day, and one of the communal spaces was functional one day and then completely dismantled the next day by contractors. On our second stay (three nights), two out of three days the elevators and running water were only available from the hours of 8pm - 7am. Communal toilets get pretty disgusting with no water to flush them, let me tell you, and the communal kitchen was just full of dirty dishes from people being unable to wash them. From prior reviews it doesn’t seem like these are new issues and the place seems to be in a permnanent stay of maintenance. Communal spaces are beautiful, however, but I think I’d rather be able to flush the toilet and take a shower.

Beautiful but lacking emergency exit safety
I enjoyed my stay overall except my concern regarding the fire safety/emergency exits at your location. To explain: one day we woke up there was a power outage and no water and were stuck in the 4th floor as the elevators were shut off. So we tried to exit the building via the emergency exit stairs in the dark. When we got to the final door to the outside of the building, the door was locked with key, unable to exit. So we went back up and tried the other emergency exit stairs and again this other exit final door was also locked with key. After walking around in the dark and lost, we eventually found some stairs that led to the hotel lobby and were able to exit via the main hotel entry/exit. It is very concerning that 1) there was no clear exit path and emergency lighting, 2) both emergency exit doors were locked with key. In a real emergency situation, such conditions would be catastrophic. I hope Selina Casco Viejo can quickly take corrective actions for the safety of future guests & visitors. Other than that, room/hotel was clean, staff were generally friendly, and the decor throughout the building is nice.

Funky cool hostel
Great location close to downtown and hop on and hop off bus. Best skyline view of Panama City at rooftop. Really nice decor - library, theatre and kitchen area. Helpful staff. 24 security. Overpriced though as you have to rent towels. Towels and a bar of soap should be given free for the price charged. It can be loud and unsafe to venture out during late hours during weekends as bars and clubs are nearby.
