    This was genuinely the best place I have ever stayed! There was nothing I could fault here. The kitchen services had everything we needed. Lovely big air conditioned rooms with lots of space, free towels and beautifully decorated. However the best thing about this guesthouse is by far Jorge and Pamela. They are truly the nicest people I have ever met and made our whole trip to Costa Rica worth it just to meet them! I would 100% recommend this place to anyone wanting to go to Quepos/Manuel Antoni

    One of my favorite hostels I have ever stayed at. Jorge and Pamela were the best hosts I’ve ever experienced at a hostel. Jorge picked us up from the bus station and drove us into town multiple times. It is a a beautiful property with great facilities, we got to stay in their tiny home and it was absolutely amazing! I would recommend this hostel to anyone and it was a great place to relax and enjoy beautiful Costa Rica. If I’m back in Quepos, I will for sure stay here!

    Very clean room and the owners are super friendly. It's a bit hard to find, we had to call the owner for clear directions but he was very attentive and stayed up late to open the gate for us. He also brought us pineapple at night when we were hungry. Would definitely stay here again.

    AMAZING! We were greeted (at 10pm) with fresh watermelon and a tour of the facility, I have been to many hostels around Central America and I can honestly say this is the best value for money that you will find. The facilities were spotless, the staff felt like family, there’s plenty of dogs to play with and a very well equipped kitchen. This place is not on a main road so it’s extremely quite and very relaxing. I wish I didn’t have to leave. Can’t recommend enough.

    Hidden gem!! Definitely stay here. The room was beautiful and the staff were super helpful. We had free tea and fruit made for us upon arrival and coffee in the morning. They also gave great advice on what to do in the area. It’s a bit far from the town but it’s a very comfortable nights sleep

    We had a fantastic stay at the guesthouse. the owner offered to pick us up from the bus station and drop us off at the end of our stay which was a really lovely gesture. I would definitely return and recommend for anyone.

    I LOVE this place! Jorge and Pamela are the sweetest couple with such warm hospitality. On the first day Jorge took us around in the car to show us a sloth and explain the little town of Quepos! The atmosphere is very warm, it has a pleasant family/friends house vibe. The place is SUPER clean and the rooms are spacious and well lit. The only downside is that this place is not located in the center of quepos so you do need to get colectivo to get down. (You can literally find one in 1 minute)

    The place was really nice, and communal areas are nicer in person than pictures. Noisy neighbours (in the house next door) spoilt my sleep a bit. I was sick during my stay so perhaps I was a little more precious about my sleep then usual.
