Veronica and Delroy run this establishment they started years ago. It is really a backpackers typical hostel. They are very personable. They even threw me a birthday party! The rooms are great for the price. Wifi works well!

My family and I had a wonderful experience learning from Veronica and her family of the food and cultural traditions found on Costa Rica's southeastern coast on the Caribbean. We enjoyed stories of how food was prepared in the early days. This included making coconut milk by hand, selecting the spices to make the chicken dinner, and the cabbage salad... More

I sought out this place because 6 years ago, I ate at Veronica's many times before she moved locations and created a hostel. Veronica was not there so I didn't get the breakfast I was promised when I booked the room. The room was very exposed letting in mosquitos. The netting over the bed had a lot of holes. The... More

The rooms are really dark and the walls don't reach the ceiling, hence we had a huge mosquito problem. There were mosquito nets on the dorm beds we used, but they are annoying and didn't work properly due to movements in sleep. From the second night on we used safety needles to keep them closed but we were bitten on... More

We stayed at the cabinas and not the hostel. The owner, Veronica, gave us a warm welcome and informed us about the various tours and activities that they organise. Our stay was short so we didn't get a chance to experience any of these. The size of the private cabin was good, but we found it to be quite exposed... More

I see that Veronica's recently moved and became a hostel rather than just a stand-alone restaurant. This is a review for the food: Veronica's is my favorite restaurant in Puerto Viejo. I have been there several times on both my trips to the town--she served great, fresh vegetarian fare at an affordable price point. For someone with a lot of... More

I stayed at the hostel not the cabinas. Stayed here because of the great reviews, but wish I would have looked for something else. I don't stay at hostels often, but I was expecting it to be a little more clean. The owners are lovely, but the accommodations and VERY basic. I would suggest staying somewhere else if possible.

+ good location with shops, restaurants and supermarkets just behind the corner + nice staff, a warm and helpful carribean family - over priced (the rooms are basic with no closet, no chair ... ) - no chance to pay with card...only cash accepted

We booked this hostel because of the good reviews but our stay can only be described as unpleasant. We found the presence of fleas in our bed (we thought we had mosquito bites until we spotted two of the insects) and when I was cooking dinner I reached for a plate to find mouse droppings on one. This is a... More

We stayed three days in the cabins and it was so pleasant. We felt safe and there was always someone on the premisis to help. Be sure to eat a few meals with Veronica and family. She is an excellent and very knowledgeable cook. I also took the cooking class which was great. These are rustic cabins but 100% serviceable.
