We have chosen to stay here based on the recommendation of friends who had stayed here before and we could not have been happier! We loved our stay! Everyone was very friendly. The location is excellent, and the room was very clean. Hope to come back soon. PURA VIDA!

Overall the hostel is okay. Pool area and open courtyard is cool, and provides you the ability to relax after a long day. They have hammocks around the courtyard and big kitchen area. Our room had a nice AC unit. The bed felt like we were sleeping on pallets, and the bathroom needs some serious updating. We stayed in the... More

Great staff, great people, clean, owner knows his stuff. Note that the swimming pool looks and is great specially when having a really hot weather. It is a great place to be at. Ensure that you enjoy as much as I did. Looking fw to being back. Manuel (the owner) is a great host.
