“Nice simple hostel, nice nature, nice people”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

We really enjoyed our staying here. The owners were extremely helpful and let us even cook in their kitchen. A color-changing small gecko was the highlight for our kids after breakfast. The nearby river is very nice for swimming. Water is not too cold.
Breakfast is simple, but enjoyable with fresh orange juice and homemade food such as gallo pinto or pancakes.

If you go here: DON'T go via Bijagua, we nearly broke our van apart. Yet, we managed to come here ;-) Go via San Rafael (~30 minutes). The street was freshly done (Dec. 2013), and a bridge still marked as a pedestrian bridge is now passable by car. As we did not know it, it took us a 3,5h rough drive.

We arrived to Piuri Cabinas as part of our honey moon. We took the trip by bus (3 buses and a ride from Alexander the wonderful owner of the cabinas, who came to pick us up)- and it was beyond our dreams. Alexander and his lovely wife were the perfect hosts, they have a private piece of heaven, just few meters from the most beautiful river -The Rio Celeste. From the clean and nice cabinas you can hear the river and you can totaly bath in it, also Alexander has built a "spa-like" natural water pools, that are derived from the river itself, and are a total pleasure.
The cabinas, are a short walk from the reserve, which is a wonderful hike. Every morning and evening we had a great meal, and really this IS heaven. So go to Alexnader's Piuri Cabinas, you will have the best experience in one of the most unique and beautiful places in the world, and will enjoy Alexander's and his wife perfect hospitality.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: amazing place, go to the cabinas!

Stayed at Piuri one night after a very long day. We hiked up the mountain all the way from the town of Rio Celeste (4km straight up) with our packs. When we got to piuri we thought the price of $55 for 3 of us was pretty steep considering we had just payed 8 bucks a piece the night before in La Fortuna but the location was unbeatable. You have a great view from the property, you can see for miles on a clear day and can even see arenal (I think). The room was large and rather clean, hot water was definitely a loose term but overall the room was nice. The best part about the place was its location right on the river. It was so convenient to be able to walk down there and swim for a little and considering we were the only guests there we had the whole place to ourselves. Breakfast was good, just your typical tico breakfast. Location to the park was great, an easy walk less than a km. It is definitely easier to get to piuri from the bijagua side. Overall great place, I expect it and all of rio celeste to blow up in popularity the next 10 years

At the end of the road, this is a nice place to relax, away from it all. It is rustic, and that is what we were looking for. A small, quaint hotel with very nice owners. Large rooms with three comfortable queen beds. Also a small refrigerator. The room also came with candles, just in case. My two grandsons and I visited for a delayed Kid’s Day vacation away from the beach. The best part was the closeness to the magnificent sky-blue river. There is a rock in the middle that is perfect for photos.

The grounds are well maintained with a path to several small pools on the trail to the river. Once you get there, you too will be enchanted.

Another great asset is the closeness to the park entrance. The entrance is a good 20 minute drive on a dirt road from the town of Biagua. It is an easy trip to the park and back to the hotel.
We got there early before the crowd!

The three of us agree that this is a place we will return to next year.

Muchísimo gracias!

we didnt book in advance and trusted once more lonely planet. alexander showed us the rooms and the prices. we were pretty surprised that we could rent a room with breakfast for 40.-.
we just went swimming in the famous river which is only 50 meters to walk. the host was realy great and we felt very home for that short time. i can highly recommend this place.

We spent 3 nights in "the egg" which is a really unique acommodation! Of course, it doesn't offer 5-star-luxury but the location is priceless. The owners are lovely and very helpful, they serve delicious costarican breakfast and dinner and the sourroundings are beautiful with direct access to the blue Rio celeste.
I definitely recommend this place!

Service was exceptional, including house keeping and meals, friendly staff. Our room with three beds and a bath was very clean with hot water in the shower. Located east of Bijagua on a very rough unpaved road Cabinas Piuri is worth the extra effort because of the close proximity to Tenorio NP and the beautiful atmosphere of the hostel itself. We enjoyed the tranquility of the river and the amazing variety of flora and fauna.
