The crepes are absolutely incredible. I had a few (I don’t remember them all), and they were all delicious. I can honestly say they were amongst the best I’ve ever had anywhere, including France.

The hostel itself is in a really good location, and has hot water for showering, and has kitchen facilities although the kitchen was filthy, but I think a lot of that was down to other guests not cleaning up after themselves. Not cool. The Major...More

We got to Puerto Viejo in the evening without a plan where to stay. Sebastian showed up and offered us to stay at his hostel and we ended up staying 4 nights! The location is perfect, you can walk to beach, restaurants, nightclubs, shops, atm,...More
