    My stay at Karandi was fantastic! Check in and check out was easy. The hostel was always clean, including bathrooms, showers and bedrooms. This is a great place to meet people from all over the world. The beach is about a 15 min walk from the hostel, which makes coming and going easy. There is also an amazing restaurant next door where you get a discount, the staff there is also great. I would definitely come back here, especially as a solo female traveler!

    I loved this place! One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. Pros: - amazing vibe and chill people staying here. Everyone was friendly and did activities together (beach, waterfall, dinner, etc) - great staff who are very helpful - great food from the newly opened restaurant - best poke bowl I’ve had! - good location a 10 min walk from the beach and 5 mins from local shops Cons: - I wish I’d been able to stay longer 😊 Super friendly and safe place for solo female travellers

    I only stayed at Karandi for one night, but I wish I could have stayed longer. The hosts were very kind and even took me on a walk to look for sloths. The beds were clean and comfortable with charging ports and lockers easily accessible. The showers were private and clean, the kitchen had a friendly vibe of people hanging out, and the property was quiet with the sounds of nature.

    I had a superb experience staying at Karandi before Envison festival. Location was perfect walking distance to the beach, grocery store, ect. Bathrooms and dorms were clean and well maintained. Staff and volunteers were super friendly and made me feel at home. Kitchen was spacious and a nice communal space to meet other travelers. 10 outta 10 :)

    This is one of my top favorite hostels I have been to. The staff was very kind, really kind, and always working to keep it so clean and be around for answering questions. It was so quiet at night and felt safe with a security person monitoring the grounds. I really appreciated having a chill, calm atmosphere. They also have some herbs growing in the garden you can pick to flavor food. You can walk to the beach or to town from here.

    This hostel is one of the newer hostels in town. It was very clean And eco friendly! The over all environment was very chill. The owner is super nice and she was able to answer our questions! The beds were comfy but the rooms get real hot during the day. Theres not much information on tours, you have to do your own research. Over all was a really nice stay!

    The hostel is super clean and comfortable! But take care! It happend twice that I got asked to pay more money. In the beginning it wasn’t enough money they took for the room?! So I payed an additional fee. The second time they told me I owe them still money which was a lie. I refused. The muscleboy (staff) creates a weird atmosphere - doesn’t even greet people, doesn’t order taxis when told and speaks in a really forcing way with you, when he speaks... cool hostel but wrong choice of staff

    Great place to stay in Uvita on a budget. Very comfortable beds and well-equiped kitchen, also the restrooms and showers were quite clean. The room space was a little bit reduced, but nothing it can't be managed. Excellent Wifi reception across the whole hostel.
