We had a great stay here. David was very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and tours. The location is great - by a grocery store, restaurants and the bus stop that will take you straight to Manuel Antonio (although we ended up seeing more wildlife on the hike to the beach recommended by David!). You also can't beat the price, especially in the Manuel Antonio area. Highly recommended!
Highly recommend Cabinas Eddy! We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is such a good value - clean, hot water, great breakfast for a very low price. The owner was extremely helpful in booking tours, and offered us a discount on every single tour (unlike other places we stayed, where they tried to rip us off), so definitely wait to book through them. The location was also great, close to the center of town, restaurants, etc. and across the street from the bus stop to monteverde reserve.
I wasn't very impressed with this hostel, especially given the price. It seemed like management was only interested in the bottom line (eg $5 for breakfast) . The staff tried to rip us off with tours too - among other things they quoted us $25 for the boat jeep boat to monteverde, and we paid $15 for the exact same thing from a tour booth literally a block a way...very questionable. Overall the grounds were nice and rooms clean, but definitely shop around before booking tours through them.
