    Cabinas Tortuguero is very nice, clean and safe. The location is great (middle of Tortuguero) and the staff super friendly and helpful. The boat brings you to the hostel so you can directly check in. If you stay there, they also offer several tours at a cheaper price (the tours are very cool, highly recommended!) We ended up staying another night because we liked it so much. They also offer laundry service at a cheap price, which saved our asses. Money well spent! Also, the hostel is right next

    Enjoyed my stay here and liked the place a lot. You'll find everything you need. And they offer great tours. Cabinas Tortuguero has it's own dock and you don't need to walk to the main dock to go by boat.

    This place was great. Isaac was the man in charge and he was very responsible. I stayed I. The dorm and slept well. There were plenty of fans. It is in the heart of Tortugero. The entire space is secured at night with a perimeter fence. They were great!

    Our stay at cabinas Tortuguero was great. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They organised all the activities we did in Tortuguero and our transfer to our next hostel making our stay really easy. The dorm was clean and comfortable and the common area with hammocks is lovely. The kitchen is also really good. This was one of my favourite hostels I’ve stayed at and I would really recommend staying here!

    Dorms were secure with lockers available. Staff was incredible about helping book tours and transportation. Not really a good place to hang out and meet people and had quite a few ants.

    I had a great stay here! The cabins are on the rustic side, so expect some bugs. The cleaning is great, and they provide towels and soaps, which was nice. You’re right in nature in a gorgeous area. They can connect you with tours (they also run a tour company). It’s Pura Vida style, so if you do a tour make sure you check in with them on your timing, requirements, etc, as they’ll be more relaxed in their communication. The turtle nesting tour was incredible, and I enjoyed kayaking too.

    Hostel was good. Rooms had fans and no bunk beds which was nice. They are able to book tours for you which are very impressive and so enjoyable. There is no real social space so not really the chance to meet others but I had a pleasant stay here.

    Overall decent hostel. Lockers weren't big enough to fit my laptop, so that was a slight security concern. The room was damp and smelled like mildew, however I didn't really notice any visible mold or insects, so it may have been more of a product of the wet environment of Tortuego. There was also no wifi in the room, and it was very full without much space for belongings.

    This hostel is a good place for doing your tortuguero adventure. The staff is really helpful and the tours with them are amazing. The hostel itself is not too clean though - which didn’t bothered me too much. But maybe one of you minds about it. The wifi didn’t work too much in the dorm I was in, but it worked perfectly well in the hammocks at the kitchen. I can recommend this place for tortuguero. Enjoy your stay!
