    We loved living in the jungle with our small cabin just steps from the beach. Comfortable hammock on the front porch to watch the monkeys and beautiful birds. There is no need to go anywhere else for breakfast or dinner....the restaurant and bar were perfect after coming off the beach.

    I came last year and this was one of the places that made me have to come back. The staff are excellent and the vibe is amazing. The fact that it had a good menu and bar was just icing on the cake

    It's a nice chill hostel in the jungle. They're near the beach which means it's really hot and damp (February). Had a private cabin that included a little lock on the door. Nothing but fans inside so be ready for the heat. There's a bug net over the bed which meant great sleeping but critters can still get into the rooms. Live music Saturday. Good surf board rentals. Vegan food. Fun little spot if you like a social atmosphere.

    Flutterby is a very cool hostel - everything is a work of art! The staff was fantastic, vibe was great, awesome location, and the food/bar was good. I stayed in the treehouse and it was very hot on the bottom bunk, it would be great to have additional fans. I'd return for the atmosphere but probably would not book the treehouse again.

    This is a good hostel for people looking for a more social atmosphere. The dorms are overlooking the bar area for the most part, which could be terrible if you like going to bed early. The bathrooms and showers weren’t very clean but that’s to be expected near a beach. The kitchen area was great and most of the people staying were friendly and chill. It’s a bit of a walk to get anywhere, but that seems like most of Uvita.

    Great vibe and bar! Great place to meet people! The only cons were the beds, really uncomfortable, and the hummus at the restaurant (add more tahini!!)

    While I think the idea is great and the staff were very helpful, feels very much like something was missing from this place. Beds in the dorms were awful, probably one of the worst beds I had all trip, and it felt very pricy for anything (ie food, drinks, rentals). Felt a little like they were in it for the money and not for the friendly hostel experience. Kitchen wasnt great. I will say that I stayed in a Cabina for my last night and it was pretty great. Decent social vibe to meet new people.
