We spent 3 Nights at this hostel and really enjoyed our stay. The Host is super friendly and helpful with any questions you mights have. Rooms, kitchen and Bathroom are clean and the kitchen is well equipped. The location is really nice- only around 3min to the beach! Also the two big dogs are a huge plus- they joined us for a 4h walk along the coast and stuck with us all the way. The atmosphere is also very nice, there are always many people sitting together and getting to know eachother. But still it is quiet after around 10pm.

The hostel is very clean. The rooms are cleaned every day and the beds are made every day as well. The place is close to the beach, where the boat is landing, but also close to restaurants and supermarkets. The kitchen is big enough and has enough equipment for a few people to cook at the same time and has a sink with drinking water for refill. The seating area has a nice view into the small but beautiful garden. Gabriella and Vincent are running the place. They speak perfect English, are really helpful and answer any questions. They seem to know everyone in Drake Bay and help to organize every tour available here. They are also tour guides for the jungle, the mangrove and snorkel tour - which are highly recommendable! Next time when I‘m in Drake Bay, I will definitely choose Martina‘s Place again!

It was my first time using an hostel, because I was traveling along and with short budget. But the experience was surprisingly nice. Martinas' place is very Comfortable, clean, cozy, and close to the beach, Wi-Fi is good. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and do everything to make your stay perfect. and maybe it was just good luck, the other customers were nice people.
