I´ve stayed at many hostels and this is a pretty good one. Only things that would make it perfect are air conditioning, included breakfast, and provided water. Other than that they have it all. They have a kitchen you can use, a refridgerator, power outlets everywhere, fans near the front and back of the dorms, a pool, they provide sheets. Also they show movies at night. It is the closest hostel to the national park, only like 5 buildings away from the entrance, and a 2 minute walk to the beach. It is a little hard to find if you don´t know the area but just ask someone when you get there and they can direct you. Its $12 US a night. Also Manuel Antonio is very hot. It reached 102 degrees when I was there. I would recommend 2 days here. Most beautiful beach I´ve seen in Costa Rica and I´ve traveled quite a bit here. They also have storage cabinets for your bags but bring your own lock
