Good breakfast, near to Copacabana beach and it was easy to get to other tourist attractions on the bus. Wifi wasn't very good

5th Mar 2014

This was the worst hostel that we stayed in during our 4 month trip in SA. There was no water for our entire trip so we couldn't shower, the toilets were all blocked, it was really really disgusting. We were refused a refund. When we first arrived from the boat, we waited in line for over 2 hours before being checked in! The staff were completely useless. They had lost our booking and others too, so we were put in a different room. Internet was bad. Terrible hostel!

The beds were very average, breakfast was odd, toilet was blocked, internet was down. We only stayed one night so this stuff wasn't too important but I wouldn't have liked to stay longer. Cheaper than other stuff around

Very poor wifi, good breakfast, nice location, right on the beach, but quite a walk from the town. The staff lost our booking which was a problem because it was during Carnival so it was hard to find somewhere else for the night that they couldn't fit us in. We booked a dorm and paid deposit but ended up paying more, not minus the deposit that we'd already paid, for a bigger dorm. The guy who owned/ran the place was useless and wouldn't listen when we said we'd already paid a deposit

We were at this hostel during carnival but it was so quiet! We were the only 2 in a 6 bed dorm and saw only a couple of others the entire time. The neighbourhood was cute and had nice shops but it was quite far from the popular beaches, so we had to get the bus. Loved that they have a rescue dog!!

23rd Feb 2014

Good location,close to the bus station. Breakfast was a nice change from other hostels. Included meat,sausages, rice, fruit etc. The staff were helpful with things to do in Puerto Iguazu but when we didn't buy tickets for the boat at Iguazu Falls from them the guy suddenly got very cold and weird, I think they must make commission even though he assured us that they don't. He told us that buying tickets at the Falls would be difficult, a long wait, no English etc but we had no problems doing so!

Hey girls, sorry but YOU guys were very cold and weird not anybody else, we try to encorauge people to meet each other and exchange experiences, since the very begining you were so far away from that concept, plus you came for 1 night only, gave you an upgrade from the 10 bed to the 5 bed dorm for no extra money, kept your luggage at reception when you decide to book online a weird and expenssive tour to the falls...you might try a hotel next time, thank you for visiting the Iguassu Falls.

We enjoyed this hostel. Good location, just up the road from the centre. Breakfast was cereal, milk and cheese toasties. Our dorm had 4 single beds, which was a nice change from being in bunks all the time. There were 2 toilets but only 1 shower so there was a long wait every time we wanted to shower. The water was lukewarm. The wifi was good.

Lovely hostel! The staff were very friendly. The woman that makes breakfast was fantastic! We arrived very early but she let us leave our bags and we had breakfast for 2000 pesos each. The rooms were comfortable, although a bit squashed with everyone getting ready in the morning. Breakfast was nice and included bread, cereal, ham, cheese, juice, tea and coffee. Were able to rent bikes from the hostel. Close to bus station and 10 minute walk to town.

6th Feb 2014

We didn't actually stay here. When we arrived they were full but they had arranged another hostel nearby for us. We had booked a dorm but got a private twin room and paid the same price. It was very difficult to find though! We spent over an hour walking around with our bags which is a lot considering how small the town is. No one seemed to know where it was and kept sending us in different directions. We had the same situation with the bus station too - San Pedro seems to lack street signs!

This was a big hostel and very busy. We were only here for one night and were getting up early so didn't go to the bar but it was loud and sounded fun. There was a few in our dorm that had to get up early and were woken up at 2/3 in the morning by drunk people coming into our dorm. So not the best if you want to get plenty of sleep

Fantastic hostel! Close to the centre of town, clean, lovely staff, free water and bananas all day, hot water in the showers. Breakfast was amazing! Bread, ham, cheese, pancake, eggs, yoghurt, cereal, juice, coffee, tea. Wifi was patchy but this might be a town problem rather than this particular hostel

Overall we had a good stay here. We arrived very early in the morning on a night bus and we appreciate them letting us hang out in the common areas until we could check in, there were lots of people doing the same thing. Lots of common areas. Free make-it-yourself, all-you-can-eat pancakes and bananas for breakfast. We understand that they were very busy but it took so long to talk to the reception. I waited almost half an hour to check out. They definitely need more staff on when it's so busy

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Plinio. The owner was a great guy, very friendly and helpful. The hostel has a good pool and breakfast in the morning was pancakes or eggs and beans. The hostel is between Quepos and Manuel Antonio and the bus stop is almost right outside. Quite a few times we were there there was no water, but not sure if this is the hostel's fault. Also, we had areas to put our bags but couldn't lock them. There were 8 beds in the room but only 4 of the storage areas could lock

Such a nice hostel! More like a resort. It's got a great pool area, the room and beds were comfortable, and the entire place looked great and seemed very clean. There is a restaurant there - the food wasn't great and kind of overpriced but it was handy to have it there and we did eat there a couple of times.

We had a great stay at this hostel! The guy who owns the place was so so helpful in helping us organise trips for ziplining, the cloud forest, butterfly garden, night walk and boat to Arenal, all of which is ended up organising through the hostel (and saved us money). He had helpful information about walks too, which we didn't have time for. Location is great, right in the centre of town. Breakfast was great! Cornflakes, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, toast and tea and coffee every morning.
