The way the dorms were set up were pretty cool. Private kitchen and bathroom between 3 dorms with 4 beds in each. The staff was great, porch was fantastic with great sunsets, very central. Nice place!


They have a large area where people can watch the sunset while laying on hammocks. It is beautiful. Staff is very helpful and informative. Location is decent, 3km walk from the beach.. likely have to take the shuttle. The only complaint is the kitchen fridge is a little run down and dirty. Would DEFINITELY return.


Lovely hostel, incredible view, nice people, great location. Couple of minutes to the bus stop up a hill but no issue. Stayed in a 4 bed with air con - no complaints. Would recommend. PS. manual antonio park is beautiful!


Beautiful views, close to town and close to the bus stop for the beach and the national park. Would recommend!


This hostel was amazing. It was one of my first stays at a hostel and left a great impression. The staff was very helpful with whatever we needed. The facilities were clean. Kitchen was large enough to accommodate the majority of the guest at one time. Had coffee and toast bread ready for us in the morning. Overall it was a great experience. Would definitely stay here again.

It was the last stop on my trip and couldn't have asked for a better view of the pacific ocean. Also not to far from the bus stop or grocery store. Great staff and great place to meet fellow travelers. Lockers would help with additional comfort of leaving bags but during the visit felt completely comfortable with the other travelers.
