This hostel is really super value for money. The view is spectacular, the accommodation is very clean and comfortable and the social life was a lot of fun. The hostel is also ideally located for exploring the Manuel Antonio Park. There is a supermarket nearby which delivers for a $1 which was handy.
Conrad is a great host and was very helpful pointing out some of the harder to find beaches on our first day. The communal area sports a fabulous views with plenty of hammocks and seating for chilling out and watching the sunsets.
Our accommodation was one of three dormitory style rooms for four, with a communal kitchen. Our beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was a great size and very clean. We also communal balcony for our section, but we preferred the chilled music and social life of the main communal area.
The food was very tasty, but be prepared to relax and wait for a bit if it's busy.
All in all, fabulous value for an inexpensive stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hostel is nestled into the heart of the jungle in Manuel Antonio center with a breathtaking ocean and sunset view over the green canopy. From very affordable dormitory bunk beds to slightly more luxurious private rooms with ocean view- we have it all and it all comes with a free continental breakfast in the morning! The common terrace area has hammocks for lounging and reading a book or just taking a snooze amongst the squawks of scarlet macaws and the touch of the ocean breeze. There is also a fully equipped communal kitchen and TV lounge with cable and dvds to watch. The spread out set up of the cabins allows us to be both family friendly and also party friendly, bringing together a unique combo of the two. Just remember at Hostel Vista Serena we host the fun!! Pura Vida! ... more less
