So this is a strange review to write. Because aside from one problem, it was a really nice place. The dorm building has a lot of character - it's an old wooden open concept room with some beds facing the ocean. The property has lots of hangout space and a great dock with hammocks. The staff seemed very helpful and the location was appealing. But I did get hit with bed bugs in the dorm. I've traveled a fair bit and slept with a mosquito net (provided) and it was definitely bed bugs. I switched beds to the other end of the dorm for my second night and was chewed on again. Staff handled it well enough and were nice and apologetic about it and promised to see that it was dealt with. Thing is the whole building is wooden, the bed frames are wooden...you get where I'm going with this. If you're sensitive to bed bugs stay away cause the dorm at least has got em. Only other negative would be the relative cost of items at the hostel - food, drink, water refills. It's a common problem in hostels trying to make a buck but the prices are bad for Livingston or Guatemala in general. Cheers…
We stayed three nights at casa rosada and we highly recommend this place. The place is clean, quiet and beautiful. They serve good food, you can rent standup paddle boards and kajaks and the staff is very friendly and patient. Their brownies are outstanding!!
Amazing place, good food, comfortable environment and super kind /helpful staff. This was a great place to chill, read paddle board a bit and just enjoy the calm of the river environment. Good environment to meet people or just hang with the staff.
This is a wonderful hostel, not a fancy hotel but well priced for Livingston with a wonderful ambience. Clean and easy to live in. Great coffee. Gorgeous painted furniture and all kinds of extras, swigs, hammocks. The owner, Ismael, creates a wonderful and friendly atmosphere, truly enjoys his guests, arranges transportation everywhere right to and from the hotel. We had a wonderful time!
I really enjoyed my stay at Casa rosado. The front desk people are helpful and the food is delicious and affordable! Had a shot of guifity and some tableta de coco, yum! Their tours are pretty cool too and the atmosphere is sooooo relaxing. I am coming back.
