Liked: The staff was great,friendly and very helpful(even let me in my room when i came back at 5in the morning on my birthday). There was a seperate building for the rooms and it had two stories with a nice common room indoors for playing pool, relaxing with TV or breakfast/kitchen. You have to climb stairs to get there but it us certainly worth the money.

Disliked: Not great english spoken, only by one or two staff members. You have to be let into the second building by someone who might not always be there or available. Very secure but sometimes inconvenien.

Liked: Room is clean, there is a nice garden with chairs and swings to hang out. Location is good in San Blas and next door is the best crepe place ever! Hoste held on to our things while we did our trek no problem.

Disliked: English of the staff wasn't the best. Can get noisy, you can hear people walking/talking.

Liked: Location and friendliness of staff. Hot showers.

Disliked: Kitchen is dirty, the breakfast is bad: scraps from the day before are stored in a cupboard (not in the frige, eg butter, or yoghurt), and re-used the next day. Beds are bad.

Liked: Pirwa is in a great location in the San Blas neighborhood. The private rooms are spacious and comfortable and the kitchen facilities are nice as well. Breakfast is basic but included and the staff are really helpful and informative. Really recommend for couples and groups rathern than solo travelers.

Disliked: Perhaps it was just a slow season but it was really quiet during our stay and there wasn't a super social atmosphere.
