This hostel was cheap and had a restaurant attached which has amazing food and drinks. 4 minute walk from the beach. My room was a single, and was pretty much a bed in a box with a ceiling fan, but I wasn't there for a fancy room! Definitely recommend if you are just looking for a bed.

It's cash only! I had a great burger and salad for an exceptional price. I loved the 1980s music that happened to be playing. It was an ok place to eat solo as other travelers were alone as well- the bar was also fully stocked. It's on the road to the Parque, so an easy place to stop in for... More

We stayed for 2 nights and the place was perfect. 5 minute walk to the beach and 5/7 walk to the amazing Manuel Antonio national park. Cheap at $10 s night, great colourful communal bathrooms, and the best restaurant in town... The place was packed both nights and again for lunch and breakfast..... OH the breakfast! Pancakes, fresh fruit, Gallo... More

Food was nothing special, but what I really disliked was the Margarita thar was awful. 2000 clones for it. Prices are not high but not low also. Close to the park entrance. Smoothie was good. Avoid coktails.

We stayed in Manuel Antonio for 6 nights and ate here 4 times! The quantity and quality were very good. The service was quick & efficient. No language problems. Costa Rica has been much more expensive than we thought, the Canadian $ doesn't do well here now, but you can still eat well at this spot and not empty your... More

I've stayed here a few times over the years and each time the staff has been very friendly and helpful. Great food at the hostel restaurant, as well. The location is great and close to everything in the area. I would definitely stay here again.

This was an inexpensive place especially compared with other options in Manuel Antonio. Its location is excellent, short stroll to the beach and the entrance to the national park. The room was a big size, clean and nice. Shared bathrooms were always clean, no complaints. Above my expectations, great budget option. Also has a couple of resident iguanas and you... More

The food is amazing!!!!!!!! And so cheap for a tourists place like Mauel Antonio! The Place is nice if you don't need any luxus in your vacation. The rooms, especially the shared bathroom could be cleaner. But if you don't care about that too much you will love this place. Nice atmosphere. Really feel like you are inthe middle of... More

First , we came in and ask for a dorm, he say: dorms are for the group of 4 only. We find it strange because it is the goal of a dorm, share a room. So he say we need to pay four dollar more to get a private one. Right beside our room, a dorm , nobody there, but... More

Did not stay at the hostel but we ate two meals here as we were staying just up the road. The food was decent and the fruit smoothies were excellent. Price was cheaper than most other options in the area.
