El Cactus is a pretty, clean, spacious and affordable hostel one block from the beach in Sámara, one of the coolest towns in Costa Rica. I think I paid $18 for a dorm room, and I loved the place — I made friends with all the guests and all the staff and was never short of good company after that. Owned by operated by a friendly Frenchman named Pierre who goes by Piero, with the redoubtable Jordy providing front-office assistance, El Cactus is a sure thing, centrally located and ideally priced.
