Property Description

Right beside Corcovado National Park!
If you want to be immersed in pure nature, this is the place to do it! Enjoy our extensive self guided trail system located on over 61 hectares of rain forest in the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve. It's bordered on one side by the beautiful Rio Tigre, and on the other side by Corcovado National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places on earth! We are nestled in Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula, next to the small gold mining village of Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre.

Stay in the original farmhouse, or in the new private rooms (cabinas), each with seating in front. Wake up in our open-air rooms, to the sound of birds and Howler monkeys every morning, as you watch the sunrise over the Golfo Dulce. There is an updated kitchen, roofed picnic table, and plenty of hammocks for relaxing.

    Amazing location in the jungle where you can be one with nature. Endless trails included in the amazing price. Remember to bring all the food you plan on eating during your stay. Feel free to hike naked and connect with nature. It will be your best experience of your life!!

    Amazingly cool little hostel nestled deep in the rain forest of the Osa peninsula. There's barely any electricity (aside from some lights and a charger station) but it's not needed at all, the sounds, smells and sights of the jungle all around you is all you need. Great kitchen facilities for the location with plenty of gas stoves, the staff is great, almost everything is perfect although I would prefer there to be lockers available, small nitpick though, highly recommend this place.

    I had a great time at Bolita Hostel! It's a beautiful setting, and the owners and volunteers working there really couldn't be more helpful. The trails are great and really well maintained - when they say the walk up is a challenge they aren't joking, but in an enjoyable way, just listen when they say not to take all your stuff with you! I met some great people there - the atmosphere is made by the people so changes every few days, sometimes quiet, sometimes busy!

    The hostel has real charm and very clean but don’t underestimate the walk there! We’re fit girls in our 20s and with our backpacks it was v. intense. The landslide on the Bonanza Trail means it’s not for the fainthearted. Bolita is in the middle of the jungle and it was a little too remote for us especially if anything had gone wrong walking the trails it’s a long way to civilisation but if you’re looking for jungle and a chance to unwind this is the place for you. No WiFi while we were there.
