We stayed at this Hostel after having a nice experience at its sister hostel, Pura Vida mini hostel in Tamarindo.
It's a great place to stay if you're in a backpacking mood. It's cheap, dorms are fine but tight and there is plenty of places to hang out. The tenant, Andrew, was laid back and fun, but not a local, so no local knowledge. The pool was nice to have. It's a little dated though, and could use some freshening up.
