Good location Food and service at bar good Nice complimentary cocktail
Room not ready for check in time Take earplugs as bar music loud
You cannot beat the location, right in the center of town, next to restaurants, bars, cafes, and travel agencies for booking local tours. A block from the bus station and from a supermarket. Fast internet with wide-screen monitor, and free wifi. Air conditioning in the rooms. More hammocks than any hotel in the world! - every room seemed to have one outside the door.. Fully equipped kitchen, and small outdoor restaurant poolside. Very pretty wood two-story structure surrounding small grassy/treed grounds. Buzz-in gate for security. Bathrooms with excellent hot water and showers in each of the dorm rooms. Very accommodating staff, handling all questions. They say they have a safe for valuables (but I did not use it so can't comment).
Bunk bed dorms. Also, if your dorm mates don't agree on using the A/C or its setting, you might sleep airless. (But if they do, it's a very comfortable night's sleep.) A miniature and too-cold-to-swim-in pool.
Secret oasis hostel, not like a hostel at all. Excellent tours.
Clean, cheap, great staff, location
I like the atmosphere, the facilities are very nice. I love the hammock. It's closed from everything.
Loved the experience
Open area to meet other people. Nice bar . God breakfast. Low cost
Staff, cleanliness, location, security
The hot water didn't really work and shut off half way through my shower. Took a while to figure out the AC but worked great once it started.
Noisy in the evening
Loved it. Good vibe. Clean. Best place I stayed in Costa Rica so far.
Wifi doesn't always work, but that didn't bother me.
Everything! The place is perfect, specially if you want to rest or are avoiding party place inside the hostel
- No hot water - Buffet Breakfast 7 USD - Noisy Room
