The staff is very friendly, they allow you to store your bags here prior to check in, size able and clean kitchen, clean rooms and bathrooms, great lounge space to relax in and it's beautiful. Very open,... More

Excelent location and view. Sourrended by nature but in a good point where you can take the bus to the beache or Park (5 min) or to quepos, the city (2min). The públic bus s tops everything 15 minutes. The hotel, staff and pool just amazing. Hermoso lugar, habitaciones limpias y hermosaa. La gente muy buena onda.

Manuel Antonio is such an amazing town and the national park is brilliant. We saw 6 sloths and more monkeys than we could count on a simple walk through. We had an outstanding stay in Plinio where the atmosphere is relaxed, the staff are really helpful and friendly, and the views are great. We couldn't have asked for more.

I ended up staying 5 nights in this hostel and I loved it. Ofcourse not everything is perfect (cold shower, could use some extra cleaning), but for a hostel it was truly amazing. Good pool and a great bar with awesome food at night. Not a partyhostel (I wasn't looking for that), but mostly people who like to get up... More

Hostel Plinio was the best place we stayed during our time in Costa Rica!! It was so cute and beautiful--felt like we were in a jungle treehouse, which we pretty much were! We had a private room with private bathroom. It was 2 stories: first floor was a double bed and bathroom, top floor was a king bed with a... More

The place is nice, there is a kitchen and good swimming pool open till 22:00. The kitchen provides gallo pinto for breakfast. The wifi is only in lobby. Rooms are very simple and humid, but clean. There is also good option of two-floor hut good for families.

I stayed here as a hostel--dont know how id feel if i were looking for a private room. As a hostel, the rooms are spacious and clean--you feel like you have some privacy. Bathrooms have soap which is always a good sign for a hostel, and were clean. You can hear the rainforest around you though here its mostly crickets... More
