Great Place, the view is awesome, pool is nice. Wifi worked well. The kitchen had every thing you needed and lots of room to sit and eat/visit. Free breakfast was good coffee and tea, pancakes and fruit. Everything was pretty clean and the staff were nice. Only 2 bathrooms and 2 showers but it didnt seem to be a problem. Alittle loud the first night and some of the lockers were broken. We still really enjoyed the place. I would definetly stay there again.

Very nice hostel with a pretty big kitchen, bus stop is right outside for convenience and not too far from the beach

primeramente no aceptan tarjetas de credito y jamas contestaron mi correo en el cual les pregunte, el hostal no era muy limpio y no respetaron la habitacion que habia reservado, las habitaciones olian muy feo, el bañao no tenia jabon, la limpieza de la cocina era realmente asquerosa, en general la relacion precio vs beneficio deja mucho que desear.

This place is amazing. I've never stayed in hostels before this trip and this was one of the best! The hostel has amazing staff and even has a pool with a bar. There is parking if you have a car and there's a bus stop right outside if you don't. The bus will take you right down to the rain forest and beach. I would highly recommend staying here.

We were in a private room with shared bathroom. The room was very basic and the air-con, which was a necessity, was very loud and difficult to have on when you sleep. The kitchen area was shared and got very crowded. People left there food out on the worktop and attracted ants. However, the staff were very nice people and the setting is very good as it overlooks the hillside. There is a pool and bar and a very useful supermarket opposite so shopping for meals was an easy outing.

This was the worst place we've ever stayed at. Rip-Off! 3 nights, room was never being cleaned, bathroom facilities in poor condition, swimming pool not clean, included breakfast a practical joke: mini slice of melon and a tiny pancake, the atmosphere was filthy and shabby, the common kitchen badly equipped, the little restaurant by the pool overpriced. In the last night even the door broke down, so we slept in unlocked room. We wanted to check out after 1st night, but wanted to see Nationalpark

The sloth in the tree added greatly to the atmosphere of this place. There were also some brightly colored birds and very colorful iguana on the property. The ocean view from the swimming pool area is lovely.

The staff is very helpful. Gilbert at the reception was very nice and helped us with a tour we have programmed in advance. Regarding the breakfast, it was good, but the mix for the pancake is not that good. Other than than, it was great.

It would be nice to have an indoor area with sofa's to read when it is raining, for example. There is a very small one next to the reception, but it is not enough compared to the number of people. Maybe add some sofa's in the room where there is the kitchen?
