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).

Cool vibes is definitly the best name for this hostel because it radiates cool vibes. The hostel reminded me of a tree fort, very laid back and comforting. Staff were so friendly. Not a party hostel so I would recommend it if your looking to relax for a day or two. Puravida!

One of the best hostels I've stopped in!! Sri and his wife can't do enough for you, from giving advice to hiring surfboards!! Hostel is impeccably clean, good free coffee, and nice dorm rooms!! Not for the party people as away from 'town' (only 5min walk), but good common areas to meet people and decent (but small) kitchen

The hostel was fine, laid back, overlooking the road and beach. Aesthetically it looked like a party hostel so I was a little skeptical when I first got in, but it was actually quiet and comfortable. The staff was really awesome, super laid back and easy to talk to.

This place is the best in dominical! Far enough that you can sleep at night, away from loud music. Beach spot right in front is amazing, they have boards for rent and available instructor on call. The staff is just lovely and outstanding and will make sure you enjoy your stay. Highly recommended.

This place has a great vibe to it, feels very open and relaxed. The owners are sweethearts and do everything to make you feel at home. The people who stay there are a mix of surfers, travelers, teachers and couples. They have a great open living room area that makes a nice place to relax, read a book and meet people.

We had a great stay at Cool Vibes! Sri and Celine are fantastic hosts, and have made this hostel into a very nice place to stay. The overall atmosphere is very laid back, and since the layout of the building is very open, it lends to great socializing. Their wi-fi is good, they have free coffee all day, it's kept very clean, and is located right across the street from the beach. Our one complaint would be that the mattresses are old and not very comfortable. We would definitely recommend it!
