    Great place, loved my stay. Jorge is a caring host with a calm, positive energy. Location is great; 20 min walk from Qiepos city center, pretty quiet. There's a little market right next door if you need anything. The place itself is wonderful, and the shared kitchen is CLEAN, which is rare! Wifi's good also. There are some books you can borrow in different languages and hammocks to chill out. Shower has hot water. Would definitely stay there again!

    What a lovely and peaceful escape. It was so nice staying in a beautiful little neighborhood just outside of town (by car). The rooms and common spaces are very clean, colorful, and enjoyable. Jorge suggested breathtaking views in the Manuel Antonio area. And when I noticed I was awake in the common areas before any guests, he would start making coffee, bring out fresh fruit, and freshly fried plantains. Of the 3 hotels/guesthouses we stayed in while in Costa Rica, this was our favorite :)

    Very great atmosphere. Hosts were so nice and accommodating. The hostel itself was immaculate and relaxing. The hostel is a bit far from town but cabs are cheap. Would definitely stay again if I had another night in Quepos.

    The hostel is great! Our room was very clean. The only downside about the room is that the AC didn’t work. It was very humid to sleep there. The fan in the room was loud and didn’t help much. I always have a couple of ear plugs with me, otherwise it would be impossible to sleep with the fan on. The facility itself is beautiful, the kitchen is nice and spacious, located on the terrace. Pistachio (the cat) will keep you a company on the kitchen couch during a day.

    Pura Vida had issues with our room and put us in another hostel, digital nomad hostel. The location was great but there was no AIrcon or hot water. There was no real common area either. No breakfast. Also, our large window only had a sheer curtain which could easily be seen thru so there wasn’t much privacy. You also could not tell where the hostel was as there was no sign…it was nice to have our own kitchenette in our room though.
