Me and my wife stayed here during our cycling tour through Central America. It is a beautiful little Hostel close to the beach with a nice garden with hammocks. Small but nice little rooms. Very relaxed atmosphere and highly recommended. The owners are very friendly and helpfull. We felt at home immediatly! Thanks a lot!

I spend couple of days in Congo's. Owners were really sweet and helpful, room was basic with bunk beds, but clean with big bathroom. There was a fresh cofee all day long + something for a breakfast. It's 1-2minutes walking from beach and the same distance to grocery store or diving schools. There is really nice garden with hammocks, huge... More

This is by far the nicest place that I have stayed in Costa Rica. Excellent location and the owners make you feel like part of the family. I have backpacked through most of the country, and this place cannot be beat. Whether you’re a backpacker, family, or couple you will enjoy your stay. Anna and Marco are warm, kind and... More

The people make this place; they are the best sort of wonderful, fun, generous people that you really want to meet. The monkeys might keep you up at night, but you can see a lot of them. Congo's was my favorite hostel in Costa Rica. It's right by the beach, too.
