My friend and I stayed here for a week in one of the 8-person mixed dorms. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and at times there was only us two sleeping in the dorm (although I don't know if this is to do with the timing)! The owners were very helpful on arrival and made us feel instantly welcome,... More

We were looking for a room near Manuel Antonio but hadn't done research on options. Depressed about our options in Quepos, we started driving up the hill toward Manuel and found this gem. Very relaxed, funky jungle environment. Beautiful views. Private room was basically a 3 story treehouse. Only downsides were the lack of very warm water, and ants that... More

Best place we have stayed thus far. There was a slight mishap with our reservation so they offered us a small, but clean room used for volunteers, which ended up being perfect. The staff spoke many languages and was very helpful with any questions we had. The kitchen was well equipt with anything we needed to make our own meals,... More

We are having a great time and enjoying the beautiful hostel. Nice dorms, sweet Tico hostel with a beautiful view on the pacific. Doing some diving with the shop that is on the same spot and loving the family style way of running the lot. Thanks for your kind hospitality, the playas del coco Idc crew!!

We had a really relaxing 3 night stay in this pleasant, clean hostel. A short bus trip from both Quapos & Manual Antonio. The bus Is very regular so you won't be waiting long. The staff were very helpful and always with a smile and hello, that goes a long way. The pool is great, and a welcome addition after... More

I thought this hostel was a really cute place to stay and compared to the prices of Manuel Antonio was cheap. The staff is also really friendly. The double rooms are nice but give directly onto the main landing and since the walls are really thin and there is only a screen for a window you can hear everything. We... More

After a wonderful stay last year, I came back to Plinio for my last 2 nights of a 4 week trip. The hostel is in a beautiful setting of an old hotel. The staff are so friendly and helpful, they simply couldn't give you enough advice on the area or whatever it was you needed! It's a shame that the... More

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.
