Food was nothing special, but what I really disliked was the Margarita thar was awful. 2000 clones for it. Prices are not high but not low also. Close to the park entrance. Smoothie was good. Avoid coktails.

We stayed in Manuel Antonio for 6 nights and ate here 4 times! The quantity and quality were very good. The service was quick & efficient. No language problems. Costa Rica has been much more expensive than we thought, the Canadian $ doesn't do well here now, but you can still eat well at this spot and not empty your... More

I've stayed here a few times over the years and each time the staff has been very friendly and helpful. Great food at the hostel restaurant, as well. The location is great and close to everything in the area. I would definitely stay here again.

This was an inexpensive place especially compared with other options in Manuel Antonio. Its location is excellent, short stroll to the beach and the entrance to the national park. The room was a big size, clean and nice. Shared bathrooms were always clean, no complaints. Above my expectations, great budget option. Also has a couple of resident iguanas and you... More

The food is amazing!!!!!!!! And so cheap for a tourists place like Mauel Antonio! The Place is nice if you don't need any luxus in your vacation. The rooms, especially the shared bathroom could be cleaner. But if you don't care about that too much you will love this place. Nice atmosphere. Really feel like you are inthe middle of... More

First , we came in and ask for a dorm, he say: dorms are for the group of 4 only. We find it strange because it is the goal of a dorm, share a room. So he say we need to pay four dollar more to get a private one. Right beside our room, a dorm , nobody there, but... More

Did not stay at the hostel but we ate two meals here as we were staying just up the road. The food was decent and the fruit smoothies were excellent. Price was cheaper than most other options in the area.

The rooms are minimal, but cheaper than worse ones in nearby hostels. The communal bathrooms are small but kept clean enough. The restaurant serves great food! I got curry which was both beautiful and delicious. There's not much of a common room but you'll see lots of people in the restaurant.

We stopped in to this restaurant on our walk from Manuel Antonio National Park to the beach. Service was friendly. They offer a set prix fix meal, one option for one price. On our visit it was still breakfast time. The meal was 1 pancake, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, rice, beans and toast. Served with tea and coffee, ALL of... More

Clean and very basic rooms. Good service by staff, reasonable bar/restaurant. Only the common toilets and bathrooms could have been kept a little better, but not too bad. Good value overall. Would stay there again. Located between the two main attractions of the town; the beach and the entrance to the national park.
