Friendly/helpfull staff. Nice pool area. Within walking distance to the beach for good walkers (if your take a shortcut - like 30 min). Strange was that you have to pay always the same amount of money, no matter where you get on the bus.
Really helpful staff who were also very friendly and welcoming. A lovely restaurant is attached to the hostel which has amazing views over the surrounding rainforest. The hostel will meet any travellers needs.
Very nice place with a lovely common area. The pool is also very nice on a hot day. Staff spoke english very well and was very helpfull. There are a view restaurants around the hostel, but you can take a bus to the center of the town where you have more options. Nice hostel and would definitely stay here again.
We had a pleasant stay at backpackers. The rooms were clean, and had 2 fans to keep you cool. The bathroom was cleaned daily, so it was never really dirty. The kitchen is the only place that was sometimes a bit dirty. They have a lot of spaces to relax and socialize, swings, hammocks, couches, picnic style tables. They also have a pool. It's pretty close to the beach, and close to a lot of really good food. One of our favorite spots on our trip! Would stay here again for sure.
Pros: I loved the location of this place- it's in front of two bus stops, one to quepos (the small town) and another one that leads to the beach. The people that work there are incredibly helpful, very courteous and nice. You're underneathe 2 restaurans and a coffee house. Amazing views Cons; The facilities were not very clean, specially the bathrooms. The syrup for tha pancakes in the morning had tons of flies on them. The kitchen is outdoors, you get insects/flies/ etc while you're eating.
The staff at this hostel is excellent. I left my laptop on the bus to the hostel and they worked overtime to help me retrieve it. I thank all of them and will return. My favorite part of this hostel is their isolated pool and bar area. This area allows you to hangout to early morning without disturbing those who sleep. Great Hostel.
This was one of the cleanest hostels i have been to.You will receive your bedding (2 sheets and pillowcase) upon check in.They have multiple fans in the rooms.About a 15 minute safe walk to the closest popular bar and about a 5-10 minute taxi ride to multiple other bars or the manuel antonio park and beach (cost about $6 for 3 of us in total).There were multiple sloths in the trees directly behind the hostel- very cool. A great small tico restaurant across the street named Angel. ($5 for casado)

Nice hostel with a pool, close to the national park by bus (cheap: 50 cents/ every 20 minutes). Clean with fan and a place to chill out.
Great hostel! Right next to the bus stop, with a delicious pizza place right upstairs! Would definitely stay there again :)
