    I had a great stay at Karandi Hostel. The staff is super friendly, welcoming and insanely helpful. There is a great atmosphere in the hostel, I met a lot of fun people and just immediately felt like being at home. The place is very clean and greatly situated. The beach, shops and bus station are just a couple of minutes walking distance from the hostel. Thanks a lot for the great time!

    Eduardo, Stiven and MJ, thank you for making my Uvita experience so special. Your hospitality and kindness is truly incredible and I could not thank you enough !! This hostel is a true hidden gem, right in the middle of paradise. Facility is brand new, clean, relaxing, and surrounded by nature. You can hear endless birds chirping from the hammocks, fresh fruit growing in the garden available for everyone to grab and 5 minutes walking to the beach. I could not have asked for a better experience!

    Karandi Hostel is an awesome place to stay and chill. Located just a short walk to the beach and to town. The hostel has an outdoor kitchen which sits in a garden where you can pick your herbs fresh from the garden and make tea while you watch the many various birds feed in the morning. The owner, is a super great guy. So helpful and has a great knowledge of the local plants and wildlife. The dorms are comfortable and the whole place is very clean. Highly recommended. Pura vida!

    Great place to stay, very relaxed but social atmosphere. 10mins walk from the beach and supermarkets / restaurants nearby. Staff were lovely and very helpful. They've set the place out really well with a nice garden, hammocks, herbs you can use, all very peaceful!

    Wonderful hostel! The beds are comfy, thanks to the fan it's neither too hot nor too cold in the rooms, everything is clean, the kitchen has everything you could ask for, the garden is beautiful, the staff is super friendly and helpful... And there are even some sloths living in the trees in front of the hostel! The only negative thing I can mention is that there are only cold water showers. But since it's so hot all the time, I was fine with that as well.
