    Couldn’t ask for a better place to conclude my trip. Staff was nice, helpful and knew everything I asked them. The tour proposed by the hostel are much better than most of the ones you get in town. The hostel is literally a park itself, we saw iguanas, nice birds and toucans in the garden. They even make your bed everyday. Perfect!

    Couldn’t recommend staying here enough! The hostel had a great vibe, a beautiful garden to relax in with comfy seating and hammocks and the staff were super friendly and helpful with arranging tours and shuttles. Right on the beach, the location couldn’t be any better! Rooms were great, extremely clean with lockers, personal fans and towels provided. Big kitchen for cooking with everything you needed. I really wish I could have stayed longer! Pura Vida!

    This was an amazing hostel! It felt more like a hotel and we absolutely loved it here. Tobias was excellent and really helpful with tours. The room was very clean and the atmosphere was great. They have a lovely open area where it’s easy to talk to people. The security was also excellent we always felt like our things were safe. I would definitely recommend this location.

    Everything was good except the beds. The beds hardly had any cushion and were very uncomfortable to sleep.

    I booked excursions ahead of time through the hostel, when I went to pay in person the worker tried charging me significantly more than I was quoted. The guy who ended up being our tour guide for all the tours was not very good.
