    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It is located right in the town which is convenient, despite being a little noisy one night. Staff were excellent, very welcoming and helpful with our queries. The place itself is very cute, lots of hammocks to chill in, a nice shared space with free coffee. The wifi didn’t reach the dorm room but was fine closer to reception which wasn’t an issue. The dorm room was adequate although water pressure wasn’t great at times. But overall a really nice hostel!

    Very nice hostel. Great location and they offer good tours with great English speaking guides to fair prices. Helpful staff, free coffee, nice garden. Bathrooms were kind of old but still ok.

    Good hostel, the staff were very helpful after we forgot to bring enough money onto the island (that doesn’t have an ATM)! Would recommend!

    A nice quiet hostel. I enjoyed my time here, very peaceful. The bed wasn't very comfortable (kind of a dip in the middle of the mattress) but everything else was fine. Very basic hostel but remember you are in a national park in the middle of nowhere so don't expect luxury.

    This hostel is in a great location, a few minutes walk from Tortuguero National Park and from main bars/restaurants. Staff were really helpful and you can book any tours you want to do with them. Nice common area (with free coffee!) clean dorm, bathroom and kitchen (a few bugs around but can’t expect anything less in an area like this!) You have to pay a deposit for room key - not a problem but make sure you have cash. Need your own padlock if you want to use a locker.

    Staff is nice and relaxing atmosphere. Location close to center. Turtle tour and canoeing are highly recommended!! However, we got wrong room. Staff blames the website. We booked a private two-person double bed and got separate beds. Tours more expensive than in center. Room got really hot. No AC available (no glass in windows). Locked kitchen all night (from 7/8pm) without sign or notice. We couldn’t get to our food+beers. Hardly security during day (reception is at end of hostel).

    There must have been a glitch in the computer. Not sure because I saw that my hotel was booked on the wrong day after it was too late. It would be nice to receive my money back, but I doubt it. I'm not going to Costa Rica to this location till July. .... not May as what the system reads. So now I am paying double. =(

    This hostel was really bad. There were bed bugs and ants in the beds, even on the top bunks. When we told the staff they were not helpful at all and charged us the full price. The bathrooms were both really horrible and dirty and neither had hot water.
