We stayed 2 nights in a 4 beds room with private bathroom and climatisation. The room was clean and includes a fridge. We could also enjoy a small terrace. The kitchen was perfectly suitable and clean. More, the people were really nice and Christian was nice and so helpful. We

The place is simple, clean and well organized. The cleaning lady was kind. The host, Cristian, was helpful but not so kind. He was upset when we woke up early for our tours, even though he’s familiar with the time schedule of the tours. Although it’s cheap place I’d rather find

Hi there... Thanks for the comment and staying with us.. However, let's clarify this. You broke every single request from the hostel. -Arrived 1 hour later then the check in time (23 hours). -Was asking in a very arrogant manner for a service you didn't pay for (a double bed in the dorm) . -kitchen is not open before 6 am and you were preparing breakfast at 4:40 am and being really loud. -you decided to stay one more night without letting us know (we didn't have availability) - you leave food stored in the refrigerator and things in the locker for the day even that you was not staying in the hostel any more. -you came back at 17h just walked inside, with the Dorm full to grav things that were not even yours without asking for permission. And the last but not the least.... Has been the ONLY client in 5 years that has been reported to Booking.com, and i am the rude one??.. I think, you do lack of respect to other people. If i could rate you..... Would have been as a person and not as a client, but either case, rate would have been negative 💯

The hostel is good, it has everything you need. It’s clean and location is pretty close to the center and you can use the bikes for free which is perfect to explore the surroundings. The beds are nice too. The best thing about this hostel is the owner, Christian. He is super

at first the owner was a little weird and unfriendly and also gave us some wrong information about the official tour office where you get the permits for Corcovado (we realised later that he's a guide himself and that might have been the reason) + quiet + great kitchen +

Hi Julia, Thank you for staying with us. As I can see, it is all about a misunderstanding. If I am not wrong, I explained you withing 5 minutes all you get explained in 1 hour at tour operators, almost as soon as you arrived to go to Corcovado National Park office cause you had only 1 hour to arrange everything before office was closed since you wanted to go the day after of your arrival, I gave you a range of prices, never a specific one.... But was to much information at once. If I wanted to be your guide, I would have say something right then, not letting you figure it out till you came back 2 days after from Corcovado. And the reason is that I don't go on overnight tours anymore, so! And at your arrival to the hostel I came out to greet you, you did not responded to that, but I won't say was because you are weird or not friendly.. But if I would have hug you, you would have say I'm weird or whatever else!! One thing is that, if I wouldn't have explained you to go to find tickets, you wouldn't have made it the day after to Corcovado.. But was my pleasure. Any case, thank you and I'm sorry you thought that I gave you a wrong info (you know I did not) And for the ones that comes by bus or boat, please, when you make the reservation, instead of paying to taxis in Puerto Jiménez, please, as you can always write comments for small things, inform us also about your arrival, that way we can pick you up or drop you to different places, it's just matters of comunicación :) Thank you once again. Cristhian PD. They are not mosquitos in the bathroom, are little insects that stays at the shower's wall to get water. :)
