    Absolutely love this place. The property is super relaxing and has great energy. You don’t even need to necessarily go anywhere. I went out some days and spent others lounging in the hammocks recharging. The staff and owner made me feel taken care of. I booked 6 nights and stayed for 9. Once I left I missed the place and staff. I would definitely come back.

    The hostel is super close to the bus stop and the beach, which is amazing since some of the buses run super early. The atmosphere and the staff were amazing!

    This is without a doubt the nicest, cleanest, friendliest Hostel I have stayed in. The staff was kind and attentive while being very genuine. The place is meticulous and all the little details speak how much they care about their business. I highly recommend and will return when I am in the area again.

    This place is a nice hostel, very clean and well kept. The staff is adorable and informative! There is no real common area apart from the kitchen so it's not the exact best place to chill and make friends. When people are in the kitchen you can talk to them but not like other hostels. The location is a bit far from the center so I recommend renting a bike !

    Karandi is decent hostel - very clean facilities, the staff does a great job there though they do get angry when travelers don't clean up after themselves in the kitchen (which is understandable, but affects the overall energy of the place). It's a small hostel and all the rooms have screens to let air in which also allows a ton of noise. You need earplugs to sleep here. The common area is super cute with twinkly lights. Shout out to Jessica who helped me book my bus back to San Jose!
