This is a great relaxing hostel with nice rooms, some fitting up to 5 people. There are hammocks around the hostel as well as other spaces to relax. There's a little kitchen that you can use or you can purchase meals from the hostel. The beach isn't terribly far if you're willing to walk a bit.

We stayed here for two nights. Absolutely loved it, incredibly kind & well informed owner gave us up to date information. Great chill out area with games, pool table, hammocks, sofas & movies at 4pm each day. Free bikes to hire. Good food & good value. Only a couple of down points stop this being our favourite hostel in Central... More

When I think of a hostel, this is what I envision. A few blocks from the town centre, so you do have to walk a bit from the bus. When you enter, there are signs in Espanol & English giving riles about the kitchen, library, laundry, etc. The rooms are all around a central courtyard. Rooms are fine. Mine had... More

We stayed there for 2 nights and loved it from the start. Elisabetha the an extremely friendly and motivated owner who speaks at least 5 languages. The room and bathroom were clean and a yummy breakfast and delicious dinner can be ordered every day. Minus: Our room near the pool table was a bit noisy and the communal kitchen not... More

At the Toucan Hotel, you feel totally safe, clean, and comfortable. It's hard not to make friends of all types. Great prices, great service (especially the insider advice on the best local activities). and the food is outstanding. This is what a hostel should be like.

The hotel has nice chilling area, good wi-fi, very friendly staff, clean and tidy. Offer once per day free shuttle bus to beach. But is quite expensive, some nights quite noisy and it is far from beach, 3 and half km far.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Tucan Hotel for 2 nights. On the property there are a bunch of trees, so we set up our tent under some of them and were nice and secluded. We had access to the communal bathrooms (surprisingly clean - and I'm super germaphobic!!), and the kitchen, all for $8 a night. One of... More

Uvita itself is an easygoing beach town with smooth waves and a breathtaking low-tide sunset. Toucan captured the spirit of the Uvita perfectly, it's a very tranquil lodge and well worth the visit. It is not as developed as Manuel Antonio, Dominical, etc., so if you're looking for some R&R, this is the spot. The staff is both friendly and... More
