This place has a great vibe, fun employees and comfortable rooms. The only complaint I had was that it was so far from the "town" of Uvita and the buses. But it was super close to the beach. I would suggest it to anyone who has a car rental or a bike.

Flutterby is not for everyone but what a cool place and unique experience. The best part is the welcoming and friendly staff (shout out to Felipe). Once you’re there, you’re part of the “family.” The bar and food are great too. For other places to eat, you must try the Sabor Espanol restaurant nearby.

Food and cocktails were good and fairly priced. The cabins were rustic and gave an authentic vibe. Nighttime security guard was a relief. Mosquito nets and towels were provided. Great place for younger folks to stay as they work hard to include social activities there. Owner was very friendly and gave us nice advice. One of the best hostels we came across!

The is one of the coolest hostels ever...it was located super close to the beach (5 min walking tops!!) and the food was so good that we had to force our selves to branch out and try other places. The sisters who run the place have put a lot of work into making there dream come true and both Kim & Pam were always on property helping out and mingling with the guest. A real cool chilled out vibe that isn't to be missed!!
