The reviews make this seem like a mini-Eden, and truthfully it's only above-average. The shared rooms are stuffy, the tents offer no privacy, and a private room costs as much as a hotel would, but again with less privacy. Compared to the hostel at which we stayed in Nosara, this one is satisfactory and nothing more. Location is good though, it's safe, and the staff is excellent. It's close to a great Italian Restaurant too (of course I forgot the name). For a night, Id recommend it.
