In Manuel Antonio there are many nice and cheap hostels. Anything would be better than this place... I recommend you DO NOT come here... Stuff is not helpful or friendly at all and they will over charge for services you could get almost half the price right next door.. The pool itself is very dirty.. The music is very loud... More

I had never stayed in a hostel before, so I immediately thought the worst. My two sisters and I (ages 21-25) stayed in a dorm room with 12 beds for 2 nights, but there was only one other person occupying the room. The mattresses were very thin, held up by wooden slabs, but it was fine for 2 nights. It... More

We stayed at National Park backpackers on the Christmas weekend 2011. The location of the place is excellent. They also have a nice pool, and they show movies outside every night. We booked what they call an "apartment", when we arrived, it turned out they finished renovating it the same day, as well as building outside. Luckily it was Christmas,... More

The matrasses in the cabinas near the pool are really too thin. We asked for another room and got great help. The rooms on top of the kitchen are very VERY basic but with good matresses, very quiet and clean hot shower. We had a pleasant stay there. But... The loud music at the pool (even when noone is around... More

I quite enjoyed my 3 days in Backpackers Manuel and I recommend it for anyone who is looking for a relaxed and sociable place. There is a nice common area and kitchen that are conducive to socializing as well as a small pool and nice view of the water. The only drawback is that they overcharge for things such as... More

I'll start with the redeeming qualities because it wasn't all bad... It's location is incredibly convenient. Right next to Manuel Antonio National Park. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Secure parking. Pool clean. Wifi (that is mostly reliable, but slow). And for the most part the rooms were clean. Movie projected on wall at 8pm every night. Showers are... More

The place is very nice and close to the park. Only 200 meters away. They have a big swimming pool and nightly movies on a big wall you can view from the swimming pool. The owners are helpfull. Sleepquality depends on the room. Some are good some are less.

This place is excellent and you can't beat the location! It's right outside the main entrance to Manuel Antonio Nat. Park and just a few minutes from the beach. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful; assisting with picking local tours as well as providing general information. I actually felt like I had my own personal touring guide! The... More
