“Excellent hostel !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

What a nice place, what a nice vibe !!! Probably the most cozy hostel i have ever stayed at :) It's really small which makes the atmosphere to be kinda family like. Right across the road from the beach. Really awesome and quite location. It's like not more then 1min walk to the beach. I loved it !
Sri and Celina are wonderful couple who run this place. Very sweet and helpful people.
I was traveling alone and was worried if i could find a nice place with chill people, who I could spend time with. The people and atmosphere in this hostel been always great.
I booked it for 3 nights only but i loved being there so i was extending my stay every day:) Every single day I was passing reception saying "alright, i think ill stay for one more night ! " and eventually I stayed there for about 8 nights or so:)
Great laidback atmosphere. I guess this hostel kinda attracts right people ;) I met really awesome people from all over the world.
Some people say on reviews like beds are the best but c'mon!! you'r paying 10$ so what the heck are you expecting?:) Advantages outweigh disadvantages for sure.
I personally have had no complains whatsoever and would highly recommend this hostel to a young people, surfers and solo backpackers! Not sure it would suit for family though.
yeah btw you can get a surf board for cheap in there, there are many to chose from. (10$ for 24hours, which is cheaper then from other places).
Thank you Sri and Celina and hope will see you again

What a great find! First off, the owners Sri and Celine are incredible people. Warm, caring and they somehow know everyone's name and treat guests like family! The view of the beach is great, as the whole front of the building is opened up. The beds are bug netted which adds a nice little touch of privacy, and the main hangout rooms are very sociable. I met people and traveled with a few of the friends I made here. The sleeping is wonderful if you get one of the far corner beds. In one ear you hear the ocean, in the other you get the jungle. It blends together for a wonderful and relaxing vibe. If you are traveling the west coast of Costa Rica backpacking, this is a nice place to stop.
