I visited the Pura Vida Hostel Manuel Antonio when I was in Costa Rica July 2014. I was very impressed by this hostel -- great common spaces, wifi, kitchen, super clean and comfy rooms, and minutes away from the beach. Great location! The staff was very friendly and created an awesome vibe!

This place is Awesome! Oh sure, its very clean, safe and super close to Quepos, but its the people that make it so, well, awesome! The price is way less $ than staying in Manuel Antonio. The common room is colorful and bright with games, comfy seats and a magnificent tree top view. It reminds me a bit of the... More

We spent there really nice times. The staff and the owner are really nice people, always smiling and offering helping hand. They showed us the secret waterfall, which I really appreciate. The price was OK, nice, clean room, as well as kitchen. Close to the beach.

Awesome hostel, very clean, safe and super close to Quepos which we found much cheaper then Manuel Antonio. The common room was amazing with fun games and comfy seats. Kitchen was always clean and very well stacked - which was a must for us as we backpack now for several months! Our dorm room was cleaned every day and the... More

Stayed in one of the dorm rooms, it was clean enough and although it's hot in there during the day it cools down nicely at night. Lots of comfy futon couches on the porches. Kitchen is pretty well-stocked, and the common area has games and things like that to do in the evenings. Its a quick taxi ride into town... More

Maybe I'm getting too comfortable with certain amenities... A/C and separate beds. We had a bunk bed configuration and between the heat and bed shifting when either of us moved I didn't get much sleep. However it was a good price, included breakfast and everyone was really nice.

I stayed here for just over a week and I have to say it really is a great place to stay if you are looking for easy access to either Quepos or Manuel Antonio. The owner Miriam really knows how to run a place like this and the staff are always helpful and eager to assist in any way that... More

I actually stayed 2 times in this hostel. The first time I stayed almost a week and the second time even longer just because I liked the first time so much. The staff (Miriam and Caleb) were super friendly and helpful and made me feel very welcome. The rooms and the rest of the hostel were always clean. Also I... More
