A great location right on the main road not too far from punta uva, so getting there by bus or bike is super easy. Nice open floor plan and spaces to hang out in. Dorm room wasn't too crowded and mosquito nets were great to have considering this is an open air house. A fantastic place to experience living in the Caribbean jungle.

So many wonderful touches lovingly made to this place by the owner who was extra friendly, sweet, and helpful. There is a rustic beauty which we thoroughly enjoyed!

perfect if you plan on cooking meals and chilling. far from PV, especially for nightlife. Accessible taxis (NOT LEGAL ones like the rest of Costa Rica), were safe enough; further than is ideal from PV. Quiet, safe, 5 minute walk from gorgeous Punta Uva beach; free bikes for supermarket runs; easy access 2 public bus; water went out every day, unprofessional receptionist: very chill atmosphere- be patient. Could be much cleaner; likely pay more than is worth; maybe bedbugs-- all got similar bites

Despite being incredibly far from town, the hostel is a two minute walk from a beautiful beach! The owner did not clean, asked that we use the old bikes to go to the supermarket (because she did not want us using the new bikes she previously told us were available), and was not very helpful or knowledgable about the area. During our stay, running water was inconsistent and people were twice stuck in the shower unable to finish rinsing. We did, however, enjoyed the social spaces of the hostel.

Nice Hostel, very unique and different then the basic hostel you will find. I wouldn't stay again just for the fact that it is a ways out of Puerto Viejo and taxis or catching a bus is just extra money being spent. But if you have plans that are outside of town it is perfect.
