When my bus arrived in Puerto Jiménez, the owner of Hostel Perezoso was waiting in the dark at the stop to escort me to my dorm. You can't beat that for good service. Omar was knowledgeable about the jungle critters from his 13 years living there. He told me many engaging stories, and gave melots of good advice.When it was my time to leave, he arranged a ride to my next destination. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Perezoso, and I recommend it to everyone.

I liked the laid back atmosphere and the fact that you could see a lot of wildlife at the hostel, with the host having a lot of knowledge to share about animals, plants and the Osa Peninsula in general.


The Cabinas are at the dead end of a side road, so fairly quiet. We were taken from the busstop, which seemed very friendly, otherwise we wouldn't have found it at first. The owner is quite friendly & talkative. The building is small & dark. The walls are very thin - in terms of sounds as well as light, The kitchen does not have a fridge & seems not that clean. The bathroom is even worse. We didn't want to shower without flip flops. The windows are not bug-safe, despite Nobite lots of bites.
