“outdoor enthusiasts, I bet you'd love this.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

This hostel in a word can be described as versatile.
Take what aspects you are looking for, and expand them.
This hostel is not for those who are squeamish around bugs as the jungle has many to offer, yet most are charming and harmless and would just like to get their work done in peace.
This could be a relaxing couple days enjoying pure nature or a thrilling outdoor adventure.
The magic is hard to explain.
My suggestion, to get the most out of your visit, plan on staying several days.the wildlife comes to you.
If you go: kiss my new family for me, the people who make this thing go are genuine joys.
My only hope is that you enjoy this place as I did.

I can only say this is the best place in Osa to enjoy Pachamama, no doubts.
And the best part is the crew... What a nice family feeling there!!
Can't wait to go back there!
Some day my friends!
