My sister and I stayed here from dec 27- Jan 2. What a cute looking place and sweet atmosphere. The pool is such a highlight, the staff work hard to keep it clean and safe during covid. When I had to go to the doctors the staff went out of their way to be so helpful. I did find it a bit expensive but we had to pay for all the beds in room because it is Covid, so for safety and sanitary purposes it was understandable. So many dogs are there, wake up to monkeys in the trees, what a great place. From the moment we checked in to checkout, it was just real Pura Vida. Thank you for everything!

The staff were very kind and helpful during our stay! Big shoutout to Melina and Jennifer who were both especially friendly. The food and drinks at the hostel were also some of the best we had on our stay and also well priced. During our stay we visited a few of the other hostels to check them out, if I had to choose again it would be Oveja for sure

Went for a week and will definitely be back. The place was amazing, the bartenders, the front desk workers, the cleaners, the surf instructors, everyone was great. The surf instructors were very patient, helpful, and great teachers. Also, easy to meet other guests either by the pool or around the bar during the live music events. Met amazing people and can’t wait to go back. Thank you La Oveja Negra!!!
