The location was great and the staff were really friendly. We made a lot of new friends as it was a great social environment. The rooms were clean and there were no issues with safety. We had a great stay and would definitely come back. Had a really good vacation. Thanks!

I was suppose to stay just for 2 days at Manuel Antonio, but the people and the ambiance was just perfect that I extended my trip for 5 days. You can be relax as well as go and party with the people you meet. Just lovely.

My boyfriend and I came to this hostel as part of our trip around Costa Rica.

The location is beautiful and the vibe is very... More

It's a quiet place to be surrounded by forest and only 5 minutes from the beach. The service is good, you can read a book or just take a rest while enjoy the nature at common areas. At the kitchen of this hostel you can prepare you own food in a clean place, you have all what you need staying... More

Stayed there for 4 days and my visit was perfect. Very good location if you want to see Quepos and The National Park! Good Shower and a very clean toilet! Rooms were fresh and I slept good even tho there's cars driving by. Next to impossible to find as good owners as Pura Vida Mini Hostel has. I would gladly... More

What a blessing finding room at The Pura Vida Hostel during the Christmas crunch! The Pura Vida is cool, & casual, flip flops and tank tops. The common area at Pura Vida is open, bright and breezy, and like a tree house hang out where backpackers and yacht crew alike meet up for planning daily adventures. Our room was sunlit... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of January in a private double room with shared bathrooms. We booked it for the price and location to the national park, which were good! However. We've stayed in a lot of hostels and have no issue with basic accommodation, but wouldn't recommend you stay here. The bed was awful, not... More

The truth is I didn't have much of a choice. In the beginning of January it was fully booked all over the area. I ordered a bed in the 4 bedroom dorms, and came there to find out that this room was already reserved as a private room, and I have to be in the 8 beds dorms. After talking... More
