I love this place, the price is good for an small but functional room. The beer is amazing, i can't wait for another "horizon pale ale". If you are looking for a budget but nice place to enjoy the caribbean this is a great option.

I really enjoyed my stay at Kaya's. Not only the room was clean and comfortable, but you also get a great restaurant and a craft beer bar on-site! Great food and excellent craft brews, together with the warmth you get from the staff and owner, make this my favorite spot to stay when visiting the Puerto Viejo area. It is... More

Good location, close to the town but away from the noise, right on the beach (well across teh street from the black sand beach), but its a surfers and backpackers stop, not a good place to go in couple or family.

Really great price for what you get. Even private bathroom and safety box for belongings. Don't get me started with the owner and staff. LOVED THEM. This is how every Hostel should be. People cared for you, treat you like family :,) This is going to be my place for future visits

We stayed at plenty of cheap, budget hostels/B&Bs over 2 weeks around CR, with no complaints at all. Unfortunately, this was our least preferred stay. The 40% rate hike for the holidays is not at all worth it--rooms are very very basic, and there are plenty of cheaper/cleaner places in town. We were "upgraded" from a beach-view room w/shared bath... More

Stayed there with the family as our last destination in Costa Rica, before going home. The rooms at the hostel were nice, and there was a good atmosphere with the hostel. The restaurant was average, I would recommend eating at the local sodas within the town. The portions are bigger and the food costs half the price.

This quaint spot is directly across from a lovely black sand beach for easy ocean access. The bar serves their own craft beers and the food is fabulous! Highly recommend the fish tacos! The beds are not fabulous, neither are the pillows, but you hardly notice as you fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing.

My friend and I had a great stay here. The rooms were a good value and the laid back atmosphere was awesome. The food was by far some of the best I've ever had at any hostel/hotel. The beer brewed in house was excellent as well, and the bar was a great place to hang out in the evenings.

I stayed in a private room with a beautiful ocean view and the room I had was very clean and very comfortable. A lot better than I'm used to in Central America. This place is as I have said ideal! You get the comfort, the location and the service you hope for. It's a 5 minute walk into town which... More

Well if you like incredible views and the sound of waves crashing near your room, incredible food and delicious home brewed beer then this is the place for you! The location was great, an easy walk into town. The staff were so friendly and welcoming especially the owner who went out of his way to make you feel at home.... More
