In the last five months I have stayed at Blue Trailz three times. I have stayed in the private rooms as well as both dorm rooms.
The private rooms are very spacious and comfortable and have everything you need. It comfortably fits 4 people and is reasonably priced if you are staying on your own.
The dorm rooms quiet and comfortable and clean and air conditioned, which is awesome!
The hostel is cleaned every day by a lovely Tica who is more than happy to chat if you speak any Spanish.
Emily and Steve, the owners of the hostel, are incredible!!! They go out of their way to ensure that you have a great time.
The best things about the hostel is it has: EVERYTHING! Yoga, surfing, paddle boarding, boogie boarding, clothes and surf boards for sale, mountain biking (or just general bike riding), I could go on and on, oh, tours, its really endless. Emily and Steve are also available to recommend other places to travel and restaurants to eat, etc.
The other staff is great too and friendly and super fun!
I definitely would recommend staying here.
AND its right across from the beach!
