    Lonely Planet review

    This chilled-out house run by friendly New York City musician Greg has a regular air-conditioned dorm with six beds and a thatched 'jungle house' on stilts out back, with 10 beds and mosquito nets. The seven doubles have air-con and include electric hot-water showers. The sprawling garden has a swimming pool, a cheap beer bar and the requisite hammocks. Wonderful.

    There's a large communal kitchen in a central rancho and a washing machine for laundry.

    Our independent authors have visited Bambu Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in David.

    Description provided by property

    Bambu Hostel is your best option in David, Panama and has the best atmosphere and facilities. Bambu staff are experienced travelers, friendly and helpful.

    There are 4 different sleeping options, good free WIFI covering the entire property, a large outdoor fully equipped kitchen and free breakfast of mixed fruit salad, buttery croissants, and local coffee.
    The huge garden is awesome, with a crystal clear swimming pool and tiki bar with $1 beers, and is surounded by lush tropical plants and flowers. Bambu has the 'jungle vibe in the city', compleate with wild animals and exotic birds and plenty of hamocks. Check out our resident wild and friendly coati on instagram.
    The hostel is a 5 minute walk to 24 hour supermarkets, ATM, shopping, good cheap restaurants, and the best seafood shack in Panama is directly in front of the hostel.
    Buses depart in front of Bambu to the Costa Rican border, so you dont need to go back to the bus terminal.
