    Really enjoyed my stay at the Congo Hostel. There was a 2 week rodeo going on right behind the hostel. It was really fun, but I was glad I had earplugs because the music was loud and went on till 2am every night. The best thing about the hostel was the lady who ran it, Gredis Zamora. She kept everything super clean and went above and beyond by sharing some yummy food she prepared and by changing some of my US dollars to colones so I could go to the Rodeo. I recommend a stay there.

    Unique hostel. Three baby cows, a puppy and two parakeets on site. Friendly and super informative staff about the local areas and tours. Very reasonably priced.

    I wanted to email you and be more discrete about this but I cannot find an email address or website for this company. I stayed in room 3 in the lower bed by the windows in the corner and I had multiple bug bites on me after for days. I cant say for sure what kind of bug, but that bed needs to be tended to. It’s sad, because the host and the property were just lovely!

    I chose a private room, but received an email shortly after saying it was not available& settled for a shared room. We arrived at 6pm&the woman (who never told us her name)came out&was confused by our arrival. She spoke no English (which is fine) but had no translation tools to aid in communication. Airport transportation was advertised but ended up being $25 & could not confirm she understood what time we needed the ride at. Ate the deposit and went with another hostel & Uber to airport ($8).

    Made a reservation and arrived at 10pm after flying in late. No information was sent to me in advance regarding that I would be arriving late so I assumed it would be fine. The gate was locked, all lights off and no instructions. Thankfully I had a cab driver from the airport who honked his horn until eventually someone came. Hot room, crawling bugs everywhere and no info about any facilities/breakfast etc was given. Left as soon as I woke up and went elsewhere

    Not even sure how to put this in words. DO NOT STAY HERE!! Worst hostel experience ever. A group of 4 of us went out to the carnival and came back at midnight to go to bed. It states in hostel world there is no curfew. We were locked out, and when they answered the knock they said get out because it's too late to be there. Basically robbed us of $50 as they would not return our money. So I repeat, DO NOT GO HERE these ladies are rude as hell and will practically scam you.

    Tough bed before your long flight home. Had to beg staff into turning on a/c in a room with no open windows. Only flavored coffee and over rip bananas for breakfast here folks. Pretty old and rough. Place isn't easy to find with the address they gave. Tried to relax in the hammock outside, forced to go in hot room because burning piles of leaves.
