One of my favorite hostels!
The location is great, just 250m downhill from the bus station. If you dont mind the hills, you can walk everywhere from here or just catch the bus to the beach, Quepos or the park.
I stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom (with one other double room) in a separate bungalow with its own kitchen, living room and terrace. Very comfy and clean, water was always hot. The best part of vista Serena is definitely the view from the large common area terrace though - its spectecular especially in the evenings for sunsets. The terrace had lots of tables, chairs and hammocks and you just wanted to relax their all day and chat with others in the evening. almost no need to leave unless you dont want to cook (like me) but then you can easily walk to the countless restaurants in the area. Also booked a kayak trip thorugh the mangroves with Jason (who is friends with Andres from reception): a great afternoon trip with lots of animals.
stay here if you are on a budget in Manual Antonio: great rooms, great location, great people!
- 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
