Avoid this place. It has some prices of places right in town, but it is located on the main road to Manuel Antonio.

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

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...

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
