There's a lot of bugs in the dorm so prepare yourself for that and spray yourself with bug spray before. The staff were very kind and helpful and the common area is nice.

The private rooms are quite nice, 2 rooms with a patio, a kitchen, a living room and a shared bath room. The view is great. The rest of the facilities are well below par. The 16 bed dorm is stuffy and has one bathroom, doors don't close, lockets are dubious, and wifi is non existing. breakfast is toast and jam every day. This is not the TLC that we have seen in other hostels. .

nice people, good location to catch a bus to quepos or manuel antonio, and a solid view. despite all of that, after staying at some well-appointed hostels in arenal and san jose, this place did not meet expectations for cleanliness. the dorm room was rustic at best, and if you don't like things crawling on you in your sleep i'd stay away

we are seasoned traveler and love staying at hostel. Hostel Vista Serena is the best Hostel we ever stayed. the location is very convinent. if you don't have a car, this is the best location hostel. it is a few min walk to super market, restaurants, and local bus stop. the staff is professional, friendly and very helpful. The ocean view at hotel is so amazing and jaw dropping. We enjoyed sitting at deck and seeing sun set at the ocean which is breathtaking. Would definitely stay here again.

Staff was really nice and spoke English and Spanish. The view of the ocean was great! Near a lot of bars and other things to do all in walking distance. Lots of bugs where you slept because screens over windows were torn. Slept with bug spray on. Also water kept shutting off for toilets/showers. The WiFi strength was okay my phone service worked better t-mobile.

Fridge and kitchen on every floor so plenty of space to put your food. Beautiful view of land and beach from balcony, with hammocks. Staff very friendly and plenty of social space to meet others. Breakfast was only toast. Instead of lockers, there was a single safe at the reception.

Staff was excellent. Location had a cool view but have to bus ($0.65) to manuel antonio about 10 Min. Everyone seemed to keep to themselves or their small groups. Breakfast was toast with jam/margarine and coffee. A lizard seemed to live in our room.. A/c was nice...

Great hostel. The beach is a 5-10 min bus ride away, bus costs about 50 cents! The staff are fantastic and are always around somewhere for whatever you need. The view of the sunset is incredible and there are so many hammocks! Great kitchen facilities and really open area so you meet people and get chatting really quickly. Would stay there again if in Manuel Antonio!
