Plinio has a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It was great to have hammocks and a pool. I stayed in 5-bed dorm. The beds were comfy, the showers were warm, and the third story balcony area was simply beautiful. Plenty of personal space, even when sharing with strangers. The wifi is best around the reception area. There is a communal kitchen/pantry area to store your groceries, cook food and enjoy breakfast. Breakfast is yummy fruit and bread. The bar was not open when I was there, but I am sure it will be great when it gets started again. Corey and the rest of the staff are phenomenal; Corey even helped me celebrate my birthday. I can't thank them enough for everything they did for me. You pretty much have to take a taxi to most places. I think the ride to Quepos is $3 and to Manuel Antonio is $8 and taxi drivers don't try to scam you. Walking to Quepos only takes about 15 minutes. Most of the tours (zip lining/surfing/paddleboarding) in the area offer free pick up services so that eliminates some taxi fees. I definitely want/need to go back.
