Nice place to stay. Very relaxing and laid back. Near the beach, but not noisy and touristy. It feels like a tree fort. It is outside of the main town of Puerto Viejo, but if you want to go into town it is easy enough with buses or cabs. You can walk to beach in 5 minutes. There was a dog and cat when I was there. Very cute. No breakfast though.

Beautiful place, in the jungle practically. Use the bus don't take a taxi there is a bus service from Puerto Viejo. Ask in the stop. the two girls who work there are lovely and happy. If your looking to get away and just relax I would recommend. Pura vida

The location in Punta Uva is great and across the street from the nicest beach. The 8km (2hr) walk to Puerto Viejo was beautiful. Renting a bike is recommended for going back and forth, only 2 official taxis. On arrival the staff told me the room had been closed for a couple days. The room and bedding was heavy with moisture from the rains. Opening the windows and running the fan to circulate air 8-12 hrs before check in and fresh bedding on arrival, not the last checkout date, could fix this.

We stayed for two nights and apart from the fact that it's really cool to sleep in a treehouse/ room that is located in the rain forest, it's not a good choice. The location is quite bad. It takes quite some time to get to Puerto Viejo (about 8-10km), but Punta Uva is right opposite of the hostel. Concerning cleanness: our beds had stains on the covers, the kitchen was not clean at all either. Staff tried to make our stay a good one, but the rest was bad (esp. bike rental was horrible).
