HOSTEL
Our fully equipped hostel has a large refreshing pool, tour desk, wifi, a delicious and affordable taco bar where everything is 800 Colones, 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).

BED AND BREAKFAST
Plinio Bed and Breakfast is located a couple of minutes walk from our hostel where guests have the opportunity to enjoy upgraded amenities. Here guests get the atmosphere of the jungle with the amenities and style of a hotel but with the feeling of home. Surrounded by mango and papaya trees, fan palms and bamboo we frequently get monkey visitors and have several resident iguanas. Our Bed and Breakfast has a shared kitchen located on site and guests are invited to enjoy the pool, restaurant and bar at the hostel anytime.

Plinio Bed and Breakfast is great option for couples looking for a little more privacy and quiet but with hotel style conveniences. At this location we offer seven unique private rooms that include brand new queen sized Serta beds, air conditioning units, cable TV with HBO (not in the apartment), wifi in every room, private bathroom with on demand hot water, blackout curtains and two outdoor patio style relaxation areas.



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 is a quick 10 minute ride away.

Both properties serve a traditional breakfast of gallo pinto, eggs, fruits and coffee free of charge every morning from 7 until 9am.

    Super clean and security 24/7. You feel safe and half in the jungle. It was an amazing experience, we were suppose to be there for one night only and ended up booking for a second night. Breakfast included is practical for us and delicious. Everybody, especially the host Britt was super nice and helpful.

    The hostel staff went above and beyond. It was obvious that it meant a lot to them that their guests enjoyed Manuel Antonio. If I am ever back in Costa Rica I will definitely stay here again.

    I had such a fantastic stay at Hostel Plinio. I stayed just for two nights but it was so nice to find a hostel that was fun, sociable and welcoming but not a party hostel. As a solo traveller it was easy to meet people which was great! It was so nice to get to chat to the owners Cory and Britt in the taco bar each night, they have a great thing going at Plinio. I stayed in the 8 person dorm and it was spotlessly clean, comfortable with gorgeous views. All staff are amazing and so friendly!

    Great! A little bit it’s further from the park than some of the other hostels, making it a nearly unwalkable route but at least Quepos is closer enough to walk to. Staff is very nice. The restaurant is over priced but all of Quepos-Manuel Antonio is, that’s tourism. Overall, would recommend!

When you book several beds in a dorm, we will try to accommodate all of you in the same room but we can't guarantee it as it depends on availability.

Attention Parents: Hostel Plinio is not childproof nor is it accustomed to chaos. Our guests enjoy peace. And although we welcome well behaved children we have high balconies, a deep pool, and we sit close to a busy road. Please be mindful of the potential risks.
