I knew hostels were very basic places to stay, but the most disappointing thing about it was the bed...the mattress was concave, and extremely uncomfortable. My daughter reserved the room for me and she was not staying with us, but when she walked in the room, she actually apologized to me for the room.

Location was great a minute walk from the national park Manuel Antonio. The matresses were thin and old and had stains all over them. NO HOT WATER. The bathroom light didn't work, nice pool. It was ok for the price

People will always stay at this hostel because of its location, 5 minutes away from the beach and the national park. However it is a truly awful hostel. The female receptionist was incredibly rude and unhelpful, the kitchen smelt of urine and had no spoons or forks, just knives. The beds were really uncomfortable and it was generally just unclean. Showers were freezing rather than lukewarm.

Rustic Basic. Dorm rooms are very reminiscent of barracks.

Great location, and some of the staff were very helpful. The beds were very uncomfortable and it was barely a mattress. The kitchen also only had one to two forks to eat with which was very difficult when there were lots of people eating at the same time. But besides that it is probably the best location a hostel has in Manuel Antonio and not too expensive!

Be carful of the people who stay in the rooms as one of them worked for the guides. It was worth it but would rather not pay over the odds.

LEGIT. Right next to Manuel Antonio Park and 5 minute walk to public beach. It was clean and safe and the staff were super accommodating. I would highly recommend this to any backpacker!!
