Inspired by the many positive reviews, my girlfriend and I visited Tucan Hostel in November 2014. Our stay was not so good for 2.5 reasons: 1) The owner was gone on vacation for a few days and had left the cleaning lady in charge of reception etc. This led to a number of troublesome situations: We knew from the website...

We stated here for 3 nights. The rooms very from shared dormitory style to private, and all rooms connect to a shared community area with a restaurant, kitchen, games, hammocks, and relaxing. The owner is wonderful and very helpful. She is also a bit of an artist and always adding to the eclectic decor. Tucan is 3 minutes walking from... More

This was a perfect place for our first night in Costa Rica. We stayed in the treehouse, which was perfect for our 10 year old! Also, there was a little kitten running around (Creeper), so she was entertained for hours :) This place had a great atmosphere and was very easy to meet other travellers.

You will feel at home, the staff will help you and answer your questions in Spanish or English. They will treat you like friends and greet you with smiles. This is a very welcoming environment, perfect for solo travelers, couples or groups. Good music, great location and even better people!! I will recommend to all.

Loved my stay at this hostel. The owners are fantastic and really make an effort to make sure you have a great time in Uvita! I had a private room which I found pretty comfy and great with the air con. Also provides an excellent laundry service and delicious restaurant. I would definitely return if I am back in Costa...

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.

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.
