Orange Drive Hostel

Los Angeles, USA

I was really impressed by the friendliness of the staff. Pretty basic place, big old mansion with lots of halls and rooms. I really enjoyed sitting out on the nice outdoor patio because all the flowers were in bloom. I was able to walk to dinner, which was nice and convenient.

Brewha Costa Rica

Orosi Valley, Costa Rica

Best hostel in Costa Rica! Jax, Zack, Taylor and Pete were all great hosts. The food was delicious and the beer was much needed after a month of drinking light Nicaraguan and Costa Rican beers. The Brewha hike is totally worth it to get a good feel for the area. The view from the deck of this hostel is breathtaking. Definitely wake up for sunrise to watch the mist roll into the Orosi Valley below. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Pure Vibes Backpackers Resort

Playa del Coco Guanacaste, Costa Rica

The main building was full of 33 Danish people so we were put in the separate house, a block and a half walk from the main building. It was very very hot in there and even though there were fans running, the room was so small with 2 small bunk beds in them so the body heat of 4 people and not enough circulation prevented me from sleeping. The kitchen was kind of dirty, there were lots of ants and the bathroom was very hot as well. I'm sure the rooms in the main building are much better...

Casa Pelon

San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua

Picture perfect location. View from the main area/kitchen looks right out over Pacific Ocean at Playa Marsella. Stayed in private double room with shared bathroom. Mark was very accommodating and a warm host. There are two rooms available, so this is definitely a small-scale hostel, expect peace, quiet and solitude. Included breakfast was tasty. Not sure if it was because of the time of year but there were a ton of flies, kind of a buzzkill, but overall a wonderful place to stay!

Hostal Mochilas

Granada, Nicaragua

Nice, basic room. Stayed in the private double room with private bath. Has a nice courtyard in the center with hammocks and swings to chill in. Very convenient location, just one block south of Parque Central so it's close enough but quiet enough at nighttime. Nice affordable option for Granada.

Managua Backpackers Inn

Managua, Nicaragua

Stayed in a double private room with private bathroom. We were only there for one night and everything was pretty basic. I wish the breakfast would have been included because it was kind of pricy for the room.
