Had an amazing stay at Pura Vida hostel. We booked for 3 nights, and afterwards extended our stay for nearly 2 weeks. The owners Robert and Thomas are amazing - very helpful and always happy to hang out and have some fun. The hostel itself is just outside the main strip, which makes it a nice quiet place - although there are usually people hanging out in the main area if you are up for it. Rooms are simple and clean - just what we needed. Had a fantastic stay and would go back!

Really great place to stay in centre of everything. Situated close to beach bars everything is just next door. Special thanks to Tomas and Robert for all their help with organizing my trip, they backpacked most of CR and have good knowledge where to go and what places to avoid. If you are looking for clean and safe place where you can meet lots of new friends and have lots of fun this is really where to stay. Very recommended !!!
