I stayed there for a week. I have to highlight the staff there, in particular Oscar. He is one of the sweetest persons I've met. From the very first moment he was willing to help giving tips about every question you can have and if he don't know the answer he will sort out they way to find it out.... More

Actually stayed at Hotel California which is a short bus ride away from Manual Antonio National Park so this review is purely based on the breakfast. It's located along the main road towards the National Park. The menu for breakfast is basic but the food was wonderful for the price. The first plate included fruit and a pancake and the... More

In my view, Costa Linda does have an endearing charm about it. The main hotelier is really helpful and friendly, but also extremely busy and so spends a lot of time running around doing almost everything in the backpackers. This place is cheap and only 10 mins from the front of the Manuel Antonio park and 5 mins from the... More

Costa Linda hostel, although not the neatest place, offers great value for price. For $12/night you can have your own private room, with a ceiling fan. The hostel offers large breakfasts for less than $3. Great location: it's close to Manuel Antonio National Park and only a few minutes walk from the beach. A good budget hotel.

Worst hostel ever. Where to even begin.. There is NO KITCHEN. So you have to eat out for every meal (right there $12/night isn't even worth it, as you spend at least another $10/day on food if you only eat once). The rooms are absolutely disgusting, you don't even want to put your bag on the ground. Our room also... More

Backpackers paradise.. More like backpackers hell. I am a pretty lenient person when it comes to hostels, so to even write a review, the hostel has to be either absolutely wonderful.. Or absolutely terrible. Hotel Costa Linda Backpackers Paradise was hell. The entire place smelled like an outhouse the whole time we were there. Our room consisted of two bunk... More

We didn't stay here, but enjoyed more than a few beers and good food. The staff are exceptionally friendly and the beer cold as can be. Highly recommended and we would very definitely return if we are ever back in Manuel Antonio

Given the rock-bottom price I almost can't believe how good this place is. Unlike most budget hotels the owners have put a lot of love and attention into Costa Linda, like the lovely river stone murals in the bathrooms (which do not reek btw). The rooms are small and simple but very clean and most have ceiling fans. The staff... More
