My spouse and I have traveled all over the world for extensive periods - on this trip particularly, we were all over Costa Rica and Nicaragua and Brewha Hostel was by far our favorite bit of paradise in both those countries. So awesome that we just HAD to go there twice in one vacation. :) The owners brew their own awesome beer, are SUPER friendly, helpful, informative, FUN!!!!! They also make AMAZING home cooked meals and eat around a huge table family style which we LOVED! The rooms were clean, great quality sheets and beds, and felt SUPER safe and peaceful. Don't mistake peaceful for not fun... these guys know how to have a blast and definitely throw amazing parties and know where to go for fun too! The hike they do to the oldest ruins in Costa Rica called Ujarras is super fun and a great adventure that I would recommend - also go to the waterfall, it was cool. Even though it's out away from the city, if you follow the directions on their website, you should be able to find it and have a SUPER time!!! We went to stay 3 nights and ended up staying 7 nights in total. :)
