    I enjoyed my stay very much at Karandi Hostel. They have a very nice facility with a lot greenery and places to hang out. The kitcken area is outdoors and quite nice. I also like that the shared rooms only have 4 beds so it never feels overcorwded. The only bad thing is that there is not much to do in Uvita. However, if you want to spend a relaxing couple of days in a very qiuet and peacful atmosphoere, I would recommend a stay here.

    Great hostel, location close to the Bollena park. Very friendly staff. The kitchen is designed in such a way that when you eat, you can socialize with others or turn around and watch the wildlife! During my stay I saw monkeys, iguanas, sloths and ton of wild birds, all inside the hostel. The backyard with hammocks is so beautiful!

    This place is really perfect for nature lovers - you get to wake up to the awesome sounds of all the animals around. The location is prime ! only 5 minutes from the beach and 25 minutes from the 'main' town by walking with options like renting a bike if you want. But the Best Best thing about this place is the owner and the staff - They were so helpfull and just greet you with a smile and help you with anything you can imagine !
