    I stayed at El Faro on a quick getaway with a friend and my mom (who was visiting). We wanted to stay close to the beach and to Manuel Antonio National Park so that we could easily walk. The location of the hostel is perfect. The pool was nice & clean, and the dorms were decent. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
