    The staff here did a wonderful job at making us, 2 young ladies, feel very safe, and even locked up our rental car each day. We ended up extending our stay at the hostel because of how nice and safe it was.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Guesthouse Pura Vida. Jorge was an extraordinarily host who offered us suggestions of what to do, drove us to town, and even called a friend to take us to the bus when he was unavailable. The rooms are very clean. The breakfast is great and the value of this place is very good. Highly recommend.

    QUite out of town, about a 20 minute walk. However, you can catch lifts with the owners quite often (they are absolutely lovely and so accomodating and helpful), or walk to the main road and grab any car on the way to town. The rooms are super clean and smell nice, and the dogs are very sweet. It’s very relaxing here and very easy going. It’s also very good if like us you are learning Spanish as the owner is so patient and great to practice with.

    We stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip and loved it! It's a little tricky to find but definitely worth it. The owners, Jorge and Pamela, are both fabulous and incredibly accommodating. When they were heading to town, they'd offer to drive us instead us walking or taking a taxi. The hostel is quiet and cozy but the surrounding environment makes it a great place to stay. It's out of town a little bit, so it's in more of a jungle-type area with lush vegetation and lots of birds.

    A little off the beaten path but was a nice break from the crowd of hotels near Manuel Antonio National Park. A convenient distance from both Quepos and Manuel Antonio we found the rooms to be extremely clean, comfortable, and spacious. The owners Jorge and Pamela were fantastic, great for suggestions or conversation and we found ourselves spending a lot of time in the common area talking, reading, and enjoying the vibe. I can definitely recommend if you are looking for the real Costa Rica.
