Fantastic location!!!!! No security present. Kitchen was big, kinda clean did see someone cleaning in the mornings. Staff at front desk are rude and not helpful at all. But if you can get past that everything else is amazing. The beds suck but for the price and location it down at matter !!! Definitely would stay here again. Ppl of all ages and families were here. Nice mix

The best thing about this hostel is that it's right next to Manuel Antonio National Park. The facilities are not very clean and the rooms get unbearably hot during the day, but at $10 a night it's not unreasonable.

The hostel has the best location for visiting Manuel Antonio National Park. The room itself is literally like a corridor with bunk beds and lockers (in groups of four) lining the wall. It is really hot in the rooms during the day but that's when you are out and about anyway. There is a fan in the room and the beds have very thin mattresses. The showers are only privatised by a shower curtain and no additional space to get changed. The pool was an awesome relief from the heat.

The location was perfect, it was so close to the national park. The atmosphere and people were really cool, however it was a bit loud at night. There was no air conditioning but the fan in my ( private) room was perfectly fine, it wasn't too hot. The beds are very old and not very comfortable, and he wifi didn't work the majority of the time I was there.
