Property Description

Hostel Plinio's jungle-side setting offers a variety of amenity options for travelers looking for unique accommodations. The hostel is one of the original accommodation and restaurant properties located in Manuel Antonio and as such we have years of experience helping guests get the most out of their stay in Manuel Antonio.

PLEASE NOTE: at this time we only accept cash payments, 2+ people in a private room incurs a $10 per person charge, not calculated by hostelworld.

Our fully equipped hostel has a large refreshing pool, tour desk, wifi, a delicious and affordable taco bar (live music on Friday), a common kitchen and ocean views. Guests enjoy having everything they need on location and the staff at Plinio strive to make the hostel a relaxing and tranquil experience. It is an excellent choice for travelers wishing to steer away from the party youth hostels and experience many of the comforts and ascetics of a rustic hotel with the communal atmosphere and prices of a hostel.

Accommodations with Hostel Plinio range greatly. We offer dorm rooms for backpackers that have two outdoor patios, a 3rd story viewing platform, bathroom, lockers, and a large space to accommodate everyone's personal belongings with plenty of room left over to move around.

For travelers seeking a more private stay, Hostel Plinio has several options. The most economical option is the double bed, shared-bathroom, private room. Perfect for couples on a budget!
Next are the standard and basic private suites. These rooms have two stories, a private bath with hot water, stunning ocean views, semi-private patio, a king size bed and a full or twin size bed. Perfect for groups of 3-5 people ($10 per person charge for 2+ guests).


Located on the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio Beach, Plinio is a great location for travelers seeking easy transportation to the main attractions without the hustle and bustle of being in the city center. With bus stops located just outside the main entrance, the beach and National Park are a quick 10 minute ride away.

A traditional breakfast of gallo pinto, eggs, bread and coffee/tea is served every morning from 7am until 9am, free of charge

    Very nice hostel with a view of the ocean. Each room has a small rooftop. There is also a restaurant with good food. Easy to get to the beaches with the bus. Just 10 to 15 min bus ride.

    Fantastic open atmosphere, with large common areas, dorms, and lockers. Pool was a refreshing bonus, as well as the free breakfast. Very close to the bus service. As pictured and described.

    I was lucky and had some really social vibes when I was there. Met some lovely souls. Super clean. Staff was nice. Live music was fun. Kitchen could be provided with some basic like salt and cooking oil. Really close to a bus stop so easy to get to and from the hostel. My only complaint is that breakfast should be earlier. It should start at 6.30 for the convenience of the people going to the national park or catching early buses

    This hostel had amazing, super helpful staff that helped us with what to do in Manuel Antonio. The bathrooms were always clean, and the free breakfast was delicious! The only tricky part was figuring out where the bus stops are because there are no signs. If you’re coming from Quepos, it’s 100% worth it to take the bus front je terminal- it’s all uphill

    Good free breakfast! Happy hour at the bar was good too. Was definitely quieter when we were there but the live music on Friday was fun. Bathroom situation for the private rooms was kinda annoying and a few times the water just stopped working - tap wouldn’t turn on and toilet wouldn’t flush. Overall was a good hostel though!

    A very relaxing hostel with good WiFi and comfy beds. The pool is great and the breakfast included is delicious. The only downside was the miserable receptionist, she made you feel awkward to ask questions and never smiled.

    The facilities were nice! the majority of staff members were not very helpful and some were even quite unfriendly.. we had problems with the wifi most of the time, so if you have to work I would definitely not recommend it! the water and the toilet flush was limited but no one could really solve the problem and no one felt responsible for that the whole time. the last night we talked to the manager about our problems and he was very understanding and friendly!!
