Property Description

If looking for an off-the-beaten path, serene, quiet, Costa Rican natural experience, we have what you are looking for. Situated on the Osa Peninsula, in a rainforest that National Geographic refers to as "one of the most biologically intense places on the planet", and where rainforest kisses the Pacific, we welcome you to Corcovado Jungle Hostel. Our Hostel is located just off a walking trail midway between the now bustling Drake Bay and the clear, cool waters of the Rio Claro.
Here, come relax and enjoy a break from the noise, dust, and hustle of other coastal beach towns.

At Corcovado Jungle Hostel we offer:
ïâ'¬­Kitchen area
ïâ'¬­Tents for 2 people max
ïâ'¬­Dorms with single beds
ïâ'¬­Bathroom area
ïâ'¬­Free Wi-fi
ïâ'¬­Internal trails on the property
ïâ'¬­Viewing platform

If planning one's own meals, we advise purchasing groceries prior to boarding the taxi boats in Sierpe. Drake has available food however it can be quite expensive.
If you wish for an easy route regarding meals, we have a restaurant offering healthy, delicious fare, 3 meals per day.

---How to get to The Jungle Hostel:
Take a bus/collective/taxi or other to Palmar Norte. Once you have arrived in Palmar Norte take a local bus to the small river town of Sierpe, this bus ride should take about a half an hour.
The bus from Palmar Norte to Sierpe departs every hour approximately from 5 am to 11:30 am and then again from 2:30 pm to 4 pm. You can also take a taxi or a collective (it departs from the Tracopa terminal).
Ask for a taxi boat to Playa Caletas or Corcovado Adventures Tent Camp Beach in the Restaurant called 'Donde Jorge'.
The boat departs at 11:30 am and 4 pm, we recommend being there 15 min in advance, the ride takes about an hour and half and takes you through mangrove estuaries and across drake bay before reaching Corcovado Adventures. (Important You cannot buy tickets in advance).

---Adventure Tours Available:
Fortunately, here at Corcovado Jungle Hostel one leaves behind the human impact of noise, of dust, however the jungle if far form quiet. Animals do not know Park boundaries and here at the hostel one has everyday opportunities to view Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, Hummingbirds, Morphos, coatimundi, Capuchin, Howler, and Spider monkey, Sloths, and numerous other land creatures. Being situated next to the Ocean, one can see Whales, dolphins, and numerous fish species.
At the Jungle Hostel we offer a selection of tours. The tours are managed by our mother hotel so you might end up sharing the tour with other people. Some of the things we offer are organized tours with local guide: Caño Island with snorkeling, Corcovado national park and our new night tour. Also, there are tours like Horseback riding, Kayaking, canopy, and fishing. You can book the tours at the reception. There is also the option of a walk to Rio Claro, is a 2-hour walk round trip (no guide needed).

    Amazing staff and beautiful location. There were parrots 🦜 right by the hostel as well as monkeys. It wasn't the cleanest place and the bathrooms were always kind of wet but overall it was a great value. The staff were so kind and helpful with everything ❤ would def stay there again

    I recommend that hostel for sure ! Drake bay was the nicest place I have ever visited and the hostel sit directly in the jungle. U have to go a few stairs up and than u can decide if u wanna sleep in a tent or in a dorm. I recommend the tent . It’s super comfy and u hear the hi how noises . Just 2 minutes to the lonely beautiful beach . The bathroom downstairs from the tent hotel can be used as well and they are way more clean . I loved it !

    The Jungle Hostel is a great choice if you want to explore the Drake Bay/ Corcovado area! We booked the tent for 2 nights which was really nice! A real camping in the jungle experience (: Brian (and the other staff) were super helpfull & friendly. The dinner at night was nice, but not quite worth 12 dollars p.p. However it was nice because the nearest supermarket is a 45 min walk. Keep in mind you get to the hostel by an hour boatride, which you also need to pay. Would recommend and go again!

    Great hostel outside of drake bay. Get a tent with a mattress, best value. Just a 2 minute walk to the beach, more beaches available on the bay trail. Groceries can be done in drake bay, 45 minutes walk in the other direction (great "hike"). Common area is nice, but not too big. Socializing was easy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only thing that was negative: kitchen could definitely be better equipped (2nd stove, properly working fridge, more utensils in general) + the howler monkeys ;)

    The Corcovado Jungle Hostel ("tent camp") is like paradise on earth. My body felt at home in this place & I was happy to be able to stay in an affordable spot in the jungle. The beach is right there & the staff are super helpful (especially Brian). The guests really need help cleaning up in the common kitchen & they need better direction about compost & recycling too. I did a fair amount of cleaning up after others. The prepared family dinners each night are yummy & fun. It's remote & amazing.

    The location is amazing, right on the beach and surrounded by jungle. It is an easy 40 minute walk into town. Yésica, who runs the hostel, is friendly and super helpful. I enjoyed my tent and the hammocks. The showers are not great.

    The location of this hostel is great, it’s in the middle of the jungle, and the beach is right by the hostel. There is a lot of birds and monkeys. However they can also be in your room, same for crabs and lézards. The rooms are really open so it’s super humid. Otherwise, everything else is great, the staff were friendly and it was easy to booked tour. I also recommend buying food in advance since Drake Bay is approximately 45 minutes walk.

    Really lovely place, comfy beds and great views. Beach is beautiful, about an hour walk to town to get food but the journey is great so was worth it. Only thing we found difficult was we had to go and find people to ask questions about tours and travel- they weren’t really around.

    When we arrived at the hostel we were the only ones checked in and we quickly realised the hostel hadn’t been cleaned. We asked to be upgraded to a hotel bungalow, and the management was very accommodating and gave us a great deal. They also allowed us to still use the hostel kitchen. We also know they cleaned everything up later, so we understood it was just an oversight. The staff and especially Brian were very welcoming and happy to chat and help. Tours were amazing.
