I stayed at this hostel with my boyfriend in mid-June. The staff was always really helpful, and helped us book all of our excursions. They made sure everything went smoothly, and were always friendly. Breakfast was AMAZING! One of the best breakfasts we had in Costa Rica. Amazing views. Would deffinately recommend!

First the facts, we stayed 3 nights in a room in the hotel above the travel agency on the main road. The room was on the small side, but we knew that checking in. There was an ensuite bathroom to our room, but the shower didn't work, only the toilet and a small sink. There are shared showers though, that... More

The place is off the main road (triangle). Receptionist Ro was friendly and our basic room with private bathroom on top floor and glass front wall was clean and served our needs. You need to draw a curtain for privacy, but there were little guests at that time, so that was not an issue for us. The only bad thing... More

This hotel was recommended to me by a friend and it did not disappoint. The room was well equipped and comfortable and the room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast was included in the room price and was cooked fresh at the time that you wanted it (within the allotted breakfast hours) The views from the communal areas were amazing... More

The owner provided us with good information about tours, restaurants and everything else we wanted to know. His recommendations were always on target and we had a great time during our stay. We even stayed longer than we had planned. The hostel is nice and the common areas are spacious. We stayed in a double room (shared bathroom) upstairs, which... More

This review is for the cabins with the view, the hostel is in the town centre and I didn't get to see the inside of it. We really liked our stay, all the staff are really helpful and lovely. The WiFi is good all over the hostel with some dark spots. The kitchens are really good and well equipped. The... More

Okay first of all let me say, Ru is a great guy! He is so nice and hooked us up with everything we needed! I was traveling solo and met tons of other awesome backpackers there from all over the world! The free breakfast was great and good views of the valley and mountains! Stay Here you won't regret it

We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at for 3 nights in February 2014. We paid $30 a night for a room with a private bathroom including a good breakfast. Our room was small but clean and comfortable.

The rooms were clean, affordable, and accommodating, but the most memorable aspect is the spectacular view. I truly felt like I was looking over a rainforest and it made my experience more enjoyable. :)

We were thrilled with our stay at Cabinas Vista Al Golfo. What great prices for amazing quality! We had a private bedroom and bathroom that were just right and a great size.
