    We had the most amazing time here! The room was clean and big, with great air conditioning (a major bonus, especially after a hot and humid hike). Charlie (who works at the front) helped us book all of our tours and he did not disappoint! Everything he chose was perfect and we had so much fun. The itinerary was great! He really knows what he is doing. He's also so kind, goes above and beyond what he has to, and just wants everyone to love Costa Rica (which we did!). Thank you Charlie!

    This was my second time staying at this hostel and it never disappoints. The location is very central and walking distance to most shops and restaurants. The staff is always friendly and helpful. They have a security guard over night and there is a parking lot that is gated and locked for your cars. Rooms are very nice. Beds are comfortable and the heated pool is just across the street with a swim up bar. The WiFi was a little spotty in the room but worked outside the room. No issue for me.

    My only complaint is that it was very loud - the windows don’t block out any noise, so between the loud music being played from the bar and the staff sometimes yelling to communicate, I ended up wearing earplugs even in my private room. Other than that everything was top notch!

    The best part about this hostel is the staff, especially Danny, who remembers everyone’s name and always greets you with a warm smile and “Hola!” He will take care of booking everything you want to do and see, or make phone calls to let bike or scooter companies know you are on your way to the rental location so they greet you by name. I had a private room near the reception area so there was some street noise, but the room was clean and bed made up every day.

    Nice place, lovely big room and clean. Fab location. Only downside was our room was right next to the common area/bar and terrible music was played pretty loudly all day. One of our nights there the music was on really loudly till 1.30am. Not sure if there was a no noise after 10pm policy but if there was no one took notice of it. We didn't realise it was a party hostel otherwise we wouldn't have booked. Would probably be fine if you're not in one of the rooms near the bar though?

    Nice place to stay, good location, the pool and the garden area with hammocks are really nice! Room was spacious, but the bathroom really tiny. They seem to have frequent problems with finding reservations.

    I booked this hostel, got a confirmation email and everything only to get an email shortly after that it is actually closed and they were moving us to the hostel across the street. We had a 3 bed room booked (double & 2 twins), and they charged us an extra $10 claiming we only booked for 3 people. The resort was empty and they said all they had available were rooms with 2 double beds which wasn’t suitable for us.The music was uncomfortably loud. Would not recommend unless you are into frat vibes
