    Initially we were only staying for two nights, however, we ended up staying a week. We had an amazing time at Akih pods, great location, and nice atmosphere. The kitchen was big enough, you never had to wait to cook. The best part of this hotel however was the staff. Rafa and others were absolutely amazing, extremely helpful, and welcoming. Rafa even guided me and a group of friends to Montezuma waterfall. Without a doubt the best staff I have ever encountered at a hostel. Highly recommendable!!

    The way I see it this hostel is an ok value for Santa Teresa, if it was anywhere else I would say it costs way to much. The facilities are pretty basic, the kitchen was being remodeled while I was there. The bathrooms were not the cleanest, and the rooms themselves are shockingly small. That being said, everyone there is very friendly, the “pods” are nice as you have some room to yourself, and the location is very central.

    Really nice for the first couple of days however, the rooms were not very big and there was not much space at all to store our bags. They played loud music very early in the morning. It seemed a bit pricey for what we got. Although the location is very good and close to the beach.

    Smallest dorm I’ve stayed in 3 months of travelling central america. The en suite bathroom had a strong smell of urine throughout the stay. Most staff were fine but the owner was rude, inconsiderate and has really bad energy. He woke up the whole hostel by playing loud music in the morning and told us “its my place I can do what I want”. Mattresses also very uncomfortable. Good location but would avoid if you want a good night sleep.
