Hostel Plinio, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
7.1
11th Feb 2016

Staff and common area are highlights for this hostel. Staff are very helpful and knowledgable on the area. Pool is nice but could do with more shade, not enough bathrooms for the amount of people - dorm of 9 and one private room sharing one shower. Common area has nice couches and chairs to relax on and free breakfast is always a bonus

Best hostel in Central America so far! Has everything you could want and more. Dorms even have separate bathrooms for males and females, no bunk beds, cleanest swimming pool. An oasis in Santa Ana

Didn't have my booking from hostelworld so put in different room that had alot of mould. Moved rooms and was much better. Usually wait to talk to staff. Good breakfast and security

View Property Reply

Hi & thanks for staying with us! We are glad you liked our hostel & facilities. You booked at the same time as someone else who did it through our website, so we had to reallocate you. It was also the same week of some heavy rains in Rio and our house has the back to the national park (pretty much the jungle) so we had to repaint some rooms. We have one maintenance guy working 7 days a week, as well as 24hours security in the house/street & a breakfast buffet from 8am to 10am. Safe travels!

Don't book your bus through them, they charged us over 50% of the ticket in commission. Good location, breakfast is the usual, lost my booking from hostelworld, wifi is patchy

View Property Reply

I do not know what happened, I am very sorry but we do not charge a high comission. Our commision is max. 10BS like all agencies in the center. If you go directly to the bus terminal you get it a little cheaper but you spend at least 1 hour and 8BS on transport. The breakfast we changed to buffet and we are quite proud on our new breakfast now. We guarantee hostelworld bookings 100%!! Thanks Claus

Nice pool, good place to base yourself for Tayrona or lost city, nice mall close by (very little to do in Santa Marta itself). Wouldn't bother with ensuite rooms, overpriced and communal showers are better - all cold. Good restaurant and bar. More reliable to do 'tours' by yourself. Would stay again
