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

When I left the hostel, I thought I'd give a "so so" comment. Two days later, it all changed. The room was ok and clean (althought we were only 3, and there are 6 beds, I think it would have been quite crowded at full potential! I knew it was a bit outside the center of Quepos, but I didn't... More

I loved this place! Walking distance to Quepos for cheaper meals and only a short bus ride up to the busier area of Manuel Antonio for beautiful beaches. We really had the best of both worlds. Every morning we woke up to monkeys coming down from the jungle that backs up to the hostel. It was so cool but you... More

Avoid this place. It has some prices of places right in town, but it is located on the main road to Manuel Antonio. This makes it hard and dangerous to reach by walk during dark hours, but what it's worst is that you won't sleep because of the noisy traffic going up and down for all the night. The shower... More

We had a really great stay here, stayed for almost a week. The location is good, very easy to get to both Quepos and Manuel antonio. What we liked the most was that it was very CLEAN in both rooms and kitchen. The only negative thing was that the included breakfast was a little too small - for our taste.... More

As my second destination in Costa Rica and week 3 of a 9 week journey this is by far the warmest of places I have been. Simone and Breanne have been extremely helpful and as considerate as it gets. I stayed here for 4 nights and they provided excellent recommendations and truly made my experience here in Quepos better than... More

I first arrived at Pura Vida Hostel a day earlier than I had planned. First and foremost let me say, I was greeted and accommodated with such pleasure. PV hostel is centrally located with quick access to all the tourist spots, beaches, national park, and local bars, sodas, and clubs for a reasonable price. PV has great kitchen facilities, nice...
