    I have stayed in a lot of hostels all over the world, and this is the nicest hostel I have stayed in! It was a little pricier, though not bad at all and WONDERFUL for the price. It is almost directly on the beach (a very, very brief walk) and within view of the beach, has a pool/waterslide, rooftop hammocks and hangout area, bar and grill downstairs, coffee in the mornings, surf shop for those wanting to surf, etc, etc. The bathroom was super clean and modern and the room was very clean-5 stars!

    Great hostel! The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away, as are bars, shops and a supermarket. The ATM is far away though so make sure you take enough money out before you get here. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the hostel has created such a good vibe, the chill out area really encourages people to mingle so especially good for lone travellers Really enjoyed my stay here

    For the area it is about average. Owners are a very friendly woman and her husband. Pros: Shower was actually warm so that is a plus. Location near many restaurants and cafes. Outside patio area is a nice to hangout and meet people. Cons: Bathroom was a bit dirty, plunger just sitting on the floor with fecal matter attached. That little AC did a poor job of cooling two 4 person rooms + kitchen. Could use more air circulation in those rooms (like a fan). Wifi spotty.

    I didn’t like this hostel, it was dirty and the atmosphere felt weird. The toilet was blocked for the entire time I was there. The bin was a huge heap of smelly rubbish and looooads of flies in the tiny kitchen

    We have been traveling fro over a month in Costa Rica and this is the worst hostel we have been to. Benefits: AC & towel but our door was broken and wouldn't close so the "owners" angrily shut off the AC multiple times because they thought we were leaving the door open on purpose. It was impossible to tell which of the weed smoking adults was in charge. The shower and kitchen hadn't been cleaned in two weeks according to one of the girls staying there. Not a very inclusive or nice environment.
