    We booked the air conditioned room and loved it. You cannot go wrong with the tours you book right at the hostel. The food at the restaurant was fantastic, especially the hand pressed coffee. Everything was affordably priced and very reasonable given you are on an island. We saw Toucans at the property and did the self tour through the Tortuguero NP and saw numerous monkeys and Toucans. Awesome experience and stay.

    I loved the place Just a few min walking from the boat and the beach, very close to everithing acctually. Really nice bedrooms and bethrooms with lots of space, a really great common area. They even have some raining boots to borrow and are careful enough to leave a flower in your fresh new twoel, just a nice and loveling touch. I super recommend it.

    Amazing staff, good company, great amenities and fun vibe. Just wonderful! We were there on our honeymoon and enjoyed a bunch of sweet complimentary treats including two amazing cocktails! We had one of the most delicious meals on entire trip at the hostel restaurant. The place is really charming with a beautiful courtyard garden that is great for relaxing. The room was simple but clean and comfortable. Housekeeping decorated the room beautifully for our honeymoon. Highly Recommended!

    Had a great time at the Aracari Hostel! Tortuguero is definitely a recommendation to stop by when you are in Costa Rica and Aracari helps you make the most of it. Very nice staff and we were very happy with our private two single bed dorm. We felt secure to leave our stuff out in our room and we were happy to just chill in the garden as well. Good wifi also nice

    Todo estuvo bien durante mi estancia, la señorita de recepción que se encuentra durante el fue muy servicial, amable y atenta. Solo que el joven que esta por las noches tiene pésima actitud lo que se refleja en la atención que da a los clientes.
