    It's the best place to stay in Dominical. Really good vibe, the owners are super nice and the place is really lovely. Also it's just in front of the beach.

    Great facilities, great staff, friendly people all around. Good social/common areas. Very close to beach and easy to get out for sunsets each night. Would definitely choose this place if I stayed here again.

    I absolutely loved staying at this hostel … It was conveniently located down the street from the beach and around the corner from the bus station and the main road. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. In addition the kitchen was very clean and inviting to use, so was the pool and the common area. Our room was also very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

    Really helpful and friendly staff :). Surf board hire was super reasonable for 24 hours. The rooms are basic but clean & each bed has an individual fan. The downstairs area was great was for socialising, there’s plenty of seating. The kitchen is really big and has everything you need. Thank you!

    Enjoying the people I've met here and learning how to surf. The waves are gentle while I'm here but can also get big, I hear. I like being in Dominical and relaxing: ocean, sunshine, small town, friendly people, waterfalls, and magic if you know how to see it 💙 I also really appreciate the owners of this hostel, Sri and Celine.

    This is a great place to stay, steps from the beach. The kitchen is well stocked and the rooms are clean. Our only complaint is from when we attempted to rent a surf board. The young man (Esteban) refused to rent it to us, sayings like "do you even know how to surf" and that he was afraid we would break the boards so we could not rent one. It seemed he just didn't want us surfing his local break. Everything else about our stay was wonderful and we would definitely stay here again.

    Love Dominical. This was a bit of a walk to the main street but it’s so nice being so close to the beach. I would go back for sure.

    In my dorm I was fortunate to find the last locker that wasn't damaged. Several had broken or missing hinges. Lockers constructed from particle board. Fortunately most people are honest. This lack of maintenance could easily ruin a vacation. Simple to fix Cool Vibes😊 Could use more power outlets to recharge electronic devices. I loved the family atmosphere with several babies and toddlers enjoying Costa Rica with their parents. Well kept, clean kitchen and I appreciated the free coffee!

    Nice hostel very close to beach and main amenities of the town. Nice that it’s open to everyone including families. Only wish there was a locker in the room for personal items and that the WiFi worked in the rooms too. Otherwise a very pleasant stay.

    The kitchen is beautiful and well kept and the atmosphere and people are amazing. The dorm wasn’t the nicest, but secure and cleaned daily.
