I seriously cannot find one Good thing about this place. Extremely over priced, far from the beach, infested with ants, and the property is in a state of disrepair. There are good views of the sunset, but not as good as what you'd get some where closer to the beach.


The hostel had a great view and the host David was very helpful in our visit! I would definitely go back to this hostel if I ever visit the area of Quepos or Manuel Antonio.


Our room was not ready upon arrival. Beds were thin and uncomfortable, sheets were old. Bathroom didn't have soap, and we had to ask to get another roll of TP. Though there is a kitchen, you have to ask David if you want to use it before 9am. He made it clear if he opened it, we needed to be there on time - wasn't too welcoming. We kept food in the fridge, but he wouldn't let us bring it into our room to eat, saying it was too messy to clean. We felt like we were treated like children.
