Don't stay here! You've been warned!

Location was great! nice to be close to the beach. The pool was also really nice especially at night, although it has REALLY hot water in it. The security could have been better as we left the room locked when we went to the park, and the staff left it unlocked after they cleaned it. The dorms are very hot and humid, and impossible to sleep in after about 9am.

The backyard was really nice with the pool and the hammocks, but the room (private with fan) was small and way too hot to be in. Maybe a more expensive room with ac would have been better.

There were mosquitoes in our room and the bed is not comfortable. The pool is nice. The hostel is a short walk away from the beach at Manuel Antonio.

This place is great because it means not losing time waiting for the bus. But if you have a longer stay, aren't concerned with bus commutes cutting into your vacation, or plan on spending a lot of time in your hostel, you should look into another spot.

Basic accommodation but great value and atmosphere. Excellent location next to park entrance and a five minute walk to the beach.

Perfectly situated next to the national park and the beach, but when I stayed there they were constructing a new house so it was a lot of noice there from 7.30. It is also important to know that the house is made of containers so you can hear very well what your nabours are up to- bring earplugs! I stayed in 2nd floor with sheared bathroom and I had to climb a very stady stair and walk a bit to get to the toilet.

This place is a dump. The toilets are filthy - puke all over. The dorms are a chicken hut - so stuffy. This hostel is used by the local students to party. The locals coming here are very rude and will not interact with you. Wifi does not work. The matres is a 1/2 inch piece of form. The rooms are so hot and has a smell to it. The pool is dirty. There are many options in MA don't go here it would ruin your vacation. PS: the owner is really rude When we told him about wifi. he was denying it!
