Wow, was blown away by this place. Firstly Andrea and Valentina made such great hosts and I felt welcome immediately. The private room (there are no dorms) was as expected and had a shared bathroom which was always clean down the hall. Great common area where there is free wifi and a kitchen with stove, fridges, cooking utensils and crockery...

The property was exactly as described, look and feel, chill, welcoming and cozy. I started by booking 2 nights, just incase I wanted to move else...

This hostel is a great place to relax. 4 minutes from the beach. Owner very helpful and always at hand. Despite the large number of mosquitoes and insects in the room all repelents were purchased from the owner. I had a double room even though I traveled solo. Showers and bathrooms very clean and cleaned every day. People in the...

No reception, trouble with de payment, bugs everywhere in the room and ants in the bed. Construction on the site so there was only a small common area with bad WIFI. We were only there for 5 minutes before we decided to leave and they still made us pay the first night.. I really don't recommend the place!

Honestly a great place - the best hostel we have stayed at in Costa Rica so far! We wanted to stay for two nights but ended up staying four. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is relaxed and the vibes are really good. Especially the community area is outstanding: open and fully equipped kitchen, hammocks, sofas... The...

Be prepared to be kicked out of your room at 9:00 for cleaning and to some confusions when paying between dollars and colones... The room was ok but overcooked (they all have pasta names) so not exactly "al dente" and they don't serve you an espresso for breakfast. Disappointing pastas.
