Ok.. so I really liked this place, but... The people were cool. The front desk staff were great. Great crowd. Good common area. Good location. Affordable. However, I stayed 2 nights and there is a gentleman who works there I caught blatantly and red handed standing outside the window to the dorm I was staying in with a female friend... More

Stayed in the hostel in a 8 bed dorm for two nights. Room was okay with fans and lockers. There's a great openair kitchen with huge fridges and you get free pancake breakfast with pineapple, coffe and tea. From the kitchen/ community area you have a great view and you can easily get in contact with other travellers :) About... More

Stayed at 10 different hostels in Costa Rica and this by far was my favorite. Meet a lot of good people and some good friends. The bar had an amazing view and the prices were fair. It has a very unique yet welcoming atmosphere.

There is a bar down the hill from the hostel next to their pool that plays extremely loud music til very late. I had a private room facing the direction of the bar. I sleep with a sound machine and earphones that usually block out noise and all I could hear is the bass of the music and couldn't sleep.... More

Clean, comfortable and, with the bus running to the beach/park every 15 minutes, a convenient place to stay. The staff were also very helpful in providing local information and assisting with onward travel.

Based on the reviews I read I was hopeful that this place was going to be at least comfortable and updated. This was not the case. I had a private room with shared bath. The ac barely worked and was very much needed & the shared bath was not very nice. I had never actually used a suicide shower before... More

Stayed at this property for one night. Location: Not far from the beach and Manuel Antonio Park. Taxi ride should cost you around 1500-2000 colones or you can also take the local bus for 350 colones. There is a supermarket right across the street and two restaurants next door. This was convenient, otherwise you would have to go to Quepos... More

We had a last minute booking and there was limited availability for private rooms in the city. The hostel was able to accommodate us and I was pleased with the room. The front desk agent was friendly. We opted to pay $10 more for air conditioner and it was well worth it. The private room had a comfortable double bed,... More
