We rented a private cabina which was nice but expensive, but if we had stayed just in the dorm rooms there would have been no place to hang out. There is no lounge area, so unless you want to hang out on your bed in the dorm you have to go elsewhere outside the hostel to just chill out. Even with staying in the cabina you are confined to that area. There are plenty of other nice places to stay in Dominical/Uvita area for better cost or more worth your value.

We liked this place a lot, but the music in the lounge area is played too late. Also there is a bar across the street that likes to play loud music until very late. Because you are sleeping in safari tents it can be quite noisy when trying to sleep.
