I roamed around Costa Rica for about a month and stayed at a few different hostels (Montezuma, La Fortuna, San Jose...). This place was most definitely my favorite. We had one of the rooms in the house around the corner, but because of timing I guess, we had the whole house to ourselves. The house was pretty clean, the beds... More

My buddy's and I stayed there for 2 nights.

This place, is cheap, clean, has a pool and air con in every room, super nice common areas also. But what really makes this place absolutely awesome is the owner, He's the coolest guy i have met on my trip and he made our experience in costa rica amazing. So happy i stumbled across this little gem.

I’ve traveled all over the world and Las Camas is by far my favorite; I never write reviews. I planned on staying there for a couple of days and ended up staying a few months. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. There is no other place I would want to go. Ryan, Matt and Jesse will make... More
