Really nice location close to the beach and the park on the top of the hill with a lovely view . Kitchen well equipped and clean room and common areas. Really good pancakes at breakfast. Staff smiling and helpful. The only negative thing is that the bar next to the pool (you can use but it is quite small and... More

I stayed at a private room here for three nights. The room was very clean and had a full size bed that was a bunk bed with a twin bed on top. The room didn't have A/C, but with the window open and the two powerful fans, I slept great. The shared bathroom I used was also kept very clean.... More

I was there for two days with one of my friend, we stayed in a 6 persons dorm in a tiny room, it was VERY warm, we barely slept. The place was crowded with teenagers making a lot of noise all the time. When we reserved the website said there was air conditionning but there wasn't. The wifi never worked.... More

I stayed at Backpackers Manuel Antonio during the christmas holiday with some friends. The guys in the reception make the hostel great! They are very helpful and very friendly. They helped us book amazing tours and recommended very nice restaurants nearby. The reason I don't give the hostel five stars is that the room we stayed in tended to get... More

We really enjoyed our stay, we even extended our stay twice. The Hostel is very, very clean, they even clean the dorm rooms. The kitchen is outside and big, although some things like oil are missing. The community is great there and the people working there are nice. Breakfast is also included - amazing pancakes! And there's a pool, real... More

I stayed at Backpackers in November for a few nights and found them very nice and easy to work with. I had a private room which had a queen bottom bunk and a twin top bunk bed. Beautiful view of the jungle from the back porch of the hostel. Bathroom was shared between 4 private rooms. Staff all speak pretty... More

Backpackers Manuel Antonio was recommended by friends and we weren't disappointed! The dorms are clean and quit big. The outside kitchen is just so nice as it's in this big terrace where you can eat and chill on the coaches! And the view is amazing! And, breakfast is included! Further down the hostel, you have the pool (open 24 hours,... More

I had a great stay at the Backpackers Manuel Antonio, it has a great location on top of a hill, with the town on one side and the national park with the beaches on the other side. The staff is really friendly and helpful!
