If I could have given this hostel a better rating than 100, I would have. Staff is so friendly, and helpful. Place is so clean, comfortable and nice. It's the perfect atmosphere... I will be back :)

Very cool hostel. Can't beat the price or location (proximity to the beach). My only complaint would be the lack of a working fan near my bed, which made for a hot stuffy night of sleep. But the mosquito netting was great. I would definately recommend the hostel to a friend and I'll stay there again if I pass through Dominical.

Sri wasn't around much but the volunteers Kaycee and Abby were amazing. Super friendly and willing to give any advice or answer any question. They actively cleaned and kept the place looking as good as they could.

I didn't notice, but some people we were with thought the pillows were nasty. Just passing it on because otherwise everything was unbelievably clean and awesome.

Cool Vibes Hostel is true to its name. There was a relaxed, do as you please atmosphere where you could get to know new people, read or just hang out in the hammocks. Plus, the price was very good for the time of year. All in all I had an amazing time.

The Best beach Hostel In Costa Rica .... Cannot beat the price or the atmosphere. Sri and Sierre are excellent hosts who know how to run their business, which it more comfortable for the guest. -"Chris"

I loved this hostel! It totally suits Dominical.. Laid-back and surf style. I mean, you even get to sit in the chairs in the common room área and WATCH the surf. :) There are surfboards there to rent, of different sizes, and all you have to do is walk across the little street and you're at the beach. It's also not that far of a walk to get to the main town. I loved the chill vibe of this place, and the couple that owned the place was super sweet. Also, free coffee all day (well, until night).
