After arriving in Cahuita with no accommodation booked I headed to the Shangri la hostel as I had seen it advertised with a few websites. After meeting the owner (and his huge dogs) I was shown to the private room I was being charged $24 for and couldn't believe my eyes! The place was filthy, crawling with mosquitoes and armies of ants, the towels were wet, the toilet paper bin full and the bed sheets absolutely disgustingly dirty. I must have spent 20 seconds in the room before getting the hell out of there and went and stayed at the much nicer Bellefleur hotel for LESS than this place wanted. I have stayed at hundreds of hostels in my time but never seen anything as bad as this place. Disgusting!
