Great pool and kitchen facilities. Great staff. Especially Allan. Okay dormitories if you only use it to sleep. Lots of people,p some you are the type that likes to go to bed early and need a quiet night, then it might not be the best place for you. On the other hand it is perfect for the type who love...

This was my favorite hostel in Costa Rica. It is an easy bus ride from Quepos and very short walking distance to the national park and the beaches (in or out of the park). There are also many restaurants (some more affordable than others) steps away from the hostel. We stayed in a private room (no bath) on the second... More

I was conflicted how to review this place. Lets start with the positives. The location is unbeatable as its a few steps away from the national park itself. Also a 2 min walk to the public beach, bus stop, and the restaurants in the area. They have a restaurant on site which serves good food and smoothies. You get a... More

We are a 30-something couple traveling for three weeks in Costa Rica on a budget during rainy season. This hostel has a great location close to the beach and park entrance in Manuel Antonio. Clean bathrooms, showers and kitchen. The staff work very hard to keep it so, but they seem to resent the guests and aren't very friendly. Bed... More

I first payed for a dorm, but once i got there i regretted the decision. The bunk beds, floor, and "lockers" were full of dust. It It was like a big storage room with beds; super sketchy. Then, decided to pay extra for the shared bathroom room. It was still pretty bad, but better than the dorms. I mean, I... More

Pros: Location and Price Cons: Rooms (uncomfortable and hot) The Hostel has a great location, 50m from the National Park entrance and 400m from the public beach. Price is really good, reflects the luxury. If you are looking for comfort and enjoying installations, it`s not recommended. However, I didn't spend much time inside, there's much to in the city.

Good value for price! Close to the park and the beach. Very nice atmosphere in the communal areas of the hostel. The swimming pool was very clean and with plenty of sun beds around. Bathrooms were pretty ok. Sizeable shared kitchen with the basics, although people's food in the fridge was stolen all the time and somehow I doubt about... More

I decided to "book" this place because the other recommended hostels were already booked for private rooms; I say "book" because by the time I arrived we had no reservation in the suite I called twice to confirm. They only had a private room with shared bathrooms, as a courtesy the front desk lady gave me a $5 discount... my... More
