This a is a great place to stay. I know the owner from the hospitality industry, and when I heard that he'd purchased this hostel last year, I knew it would be good.

I've owed this review for quite a while. I stayed here towards the end of June 2015, and Manuel (the owner) just bought the place and his family was there. They are amazing people. The hostel was clean, there's wi-fi, water, a kitchen, fridge, and it has a pool (Manuel's wife hosted an aquatic Zumba class). It's a little off... More

This was my first experience staying in a hostel... Holy cow, I'm sold! So much more fun then staying in a resort/hotel. I rented out an entire room and therefore had my own shower and toilet (a must...sorry). The bed was comfy and the room was cleaned everyday unless I asked them not to bother. The place is clean and... More

Apart from the high standard of cleanliness and the lovely pool, the best thing about this hostel is the level of service, help and genuine enthusiasm from Manuel the owner. Nothing was too much trouble and everything done with a smile. Brilliant!! I would not hesitate to stay here next time I am in CR.

We stayed here a week ago in a private room. Room had great a/c and wifi. All very clean. Pool was an added bonus. The owner/manager gave us great tips of what to do and where to go and shows a genuine interest in everyone staying at the hostel. Would definitely recommend staying here.
