    I wish I could explain how great this location was. If you come to this part of Costa Rica Playa Hermosa is a much more tranquil and pretty area than playa coco. Coco would be great for a bit more liveliness but I prefer hermosa. This hostel was right next to the beach, and super quiet outside of the occasional monkey we heard in the morning. We stayed one night because of a problem with a previous booking and I’m so glad we chose this spot last minute! P.S. we were in town during down season

    In the room we stayed in, we could not lock the door from inside the room. However all the doors to the exterior were locked at night so it wasn't a huge deal. Very friendly owners. Great location. Would stay there again. Thanks!

    I have no serious complaints about this hostel, although there was some miscommunication between us and the owner on their end. They weren’t prepared for our arrival and they didn’t remind us or notify us when we had to check out of the room by, so after being at the beach we had to just grab our stuff and go. However, they did not charge us for the “extra” two hours. The beds were good, the AC units were fantastic, and the location was amazing. Great spot if you want a day at Playa Hermosa.

    This is a nice little place in a great location next to playa hermosa. Our main complaint is that the host allowed a family to pay to double up in the other two beds that were available in what was intended to be a four person max shared room. This made us feel uncomfortable and it felt unprofessional since the room was crowded and loud due to the two extra people sleeping there. Also, the floor in the kitchen was extremely dusty and i nearly slipped several times coming down the stairs.

    Location of this place is hard to beat - steps away from the beach - ideal for someone who cares about location only. My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room for 1 night - a private room split between us didn't feel worth the cost. However, if I was traveling solo or we wanted to be in a shared room, the cost would probably be more appropriate. The rooms are a bit dark and musty, but the AC worked well. Bring bug spray. Staff was friendly, breakfast was an extra charge so we didn't opt-in.

    Rustic and quaint, the Congos Hostel is geared toward the traveller who wants to be steps from the beach and cares about not much else. Please be aware that, though the rooms are clean, it is predominately a camping venue and bugs will be very friendly to you here. Kind and friendly staff!

    Booked two nights online and left after one night. We would have left after arriving if there was time. We stayed in the 4 bed that had only 1 other person in it. The room was very small, the air was musty and the bathroom was disgusting. We arrived around 12:30pm so it was clearly a lack of cleaning. The location was good, close to the beach but you need repellent as the mosquitos were bad. Kitchen was pretty well equipped for cook. No refund on second night when asked before leaving early.
