My plan was to stay for 2-3 days at the Eco Venao, and I ended up to stay 8 nights and had a hard time to leave.
The hostel is a great place with good vibes and all sorts of guests.
The staff is really nice and the ladies, who are responsible for the cleaning, are working a lot to keep the rooms proper from the sand.
The 8-dorm bed has a lot of space and clean.
There is a guest kitchen, but I recommend you to eat at Aldo's Restaurant. He's a fabulous cook, which is open to any kind of special dish. Moreover, he's a good entertainer and can bring the guests perfectly together. Aldo's food was the best one I ate in whole Panama.
The hostel is build on a small hill, 4 minutes walk and you can reach the wonderful beach.
The hostel offers you everything, from surf rental, food to washing your clothes and dry them in just one morning!
However, if you're planning to cook for yourself, buy already some food before Pedasi. The village has a supermarket, but the offer is really basic and don't expect too much of fresh food.
The location and buildings of the hostel are brilliant. Everything made out of wood and the landlords created a protected area for monkeys, birds and deers. There is as well the possibility to have some nice walks around these area.
Last but not least, there is the option of working in order to have a free stay. Just ask the friendly hostel staff.
