Description - Hostel

The Purple House Hostel, is proud to be the longest operating original backpacker hostel in the entire country of Panama.
It was named by it's founder Andrea A. in honor of the original Purple House Hostel which was located in Tel Aviv, Israel back in the 1980's. In 1999 she came to Panama as a Peace Corps Volunteer and never left. After 15 years she decided to pass the hostel to it's new owners and current administrators Karla, Martha and Bryan becoming a family business. This change came with a new location, new ideas and of course great hospitality that will make you feel welcome and comfortable.
