    Such a beautiful hostel right on the beach! It was wonderful waking up to the sound of the waves. We were there mon-wed so didn’t experience the party much but could see how it could be quite loud on the weekend with a bar downstairs. Bring your earplugs for sure. Aside from that great location, great staff, and comfy beds :)

    We stayed at three hostels in Puerto Viejo, and this one was by far the best! Location is FIVE STARS (right on the beach). The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was clean and attached to the balcony. Only problem we encountered was with the shower, not running or low heat. We only stayed two nights in February, but we should have booked the entire week here.

    The staff really make this place! They promote a fun, safe culture and are very inclusive. It’s promoted as a party hostel and does get noisy; but you’re also respected if you just need a night in, bring your earplugs like at any party hostel and is fine! The lazy loft is your quintessential beach backpackers, rustic and worn from the ocean, but well loved. The cleaner every day does a great job. There’s a kitchen for cooking and storing food, and the beach location is absolute prime!

    Party Hostel, what else can I say. Young Crowd, including the staff. Laid back Chill Vibe. Beautiful Location right on the Beach.

    The hostel is nice and the volunteers there were lovely! Amazing views as the balcony leads onto the beach! There is a bar downstairs which was noisy; I knew this before booking but didn’t appreciate it would be every night! I listened to some music and was fine! When I was there, there were more volunteers than guests and this did give a different vibe to the place, but overall I had a lovely stay!

    I wouldnt go stay there again. Beds are so bad you can actually feel the springs inside the mattress, the rooms are pretty tiny and i know people say before coming to be aware of the noise at night cause its a Party hostel the thing is you do have noise but no special hostel Party, its more like you need to suffer the local Partys around you noises. With all that said the Staff is kind and the kitchen is clean and well proped

    There was no lock for the dorm, which means everyone could walk in - even strangers from the streets, because there wasn’t 24 hours security. The atmosphere was a bit strange, very quiet - maybe because of the season. There was only one shower working. Not the best experience, but the best location in town

    Pretty sure they have bedbugs woke up with bites allover my body. Bar downstairs has a speaker right under the window. Condoms on floor in bathroom. Mattresses were horrible. Cobwebs all over the walls and roof in dorms. Power went out during night phone didnt charge just about missed alarm for bus.

    With no one in the downstairs bar whatsoever, they are blasting music until early into the morning, making it impossible to sleep. The rooms are scorching hot, demanding that you awake early. So you won’t sleep at night and you can’t sleep in the morning. I moved out after one night. It’s a joke of a hostel.
