    Don’t stay at the lazy loft unless you’re in the mood to party. Situated over the lazy mom bar, the place is crazy until 3am on the weekends. That being said, this was one of our best stops in Costa Rica. We’ve yet to stay in a hostel in Central America that has had such a friendly and welcoming feel. The staff make you feel like family, and they are all so wonderful and fun to be around. The place is a blast to stay in, we miss it already!

    We were in the crappiest room (right next to the reception desk) but the owner here made the experience so lovely for us, took us on a free tour of nearby waterfalls and natural pools! Great kitchen and other facilities. Location is good - we stayed here during the week so never really had trouble with the noise downstairs but I can imagine it gets quite load.

    In a perfect location, couple minutes walk from the bus station and right in the heart of the town. Nice big kitchen to cook in but the fridge doesn’t work so don’t buy anything that needs to be refrigerated because it will go bad. Multiple bathrooms/showers so waiting wasn’t an issue. The dorm rooms are extremely basic but that’s to be expected. It’s right on the beach which is great. I will stay here again when in Puerto Viejo. Also, they accept cash and credit card.

    Beautiful spot, downtown. You can go swimming right out front in the Caribbean. Short walk to lots of restaurants and bars. If you can splurge and get a room - do it! We stayed in a very cramped, VERY hot dorm. I saw the other rooms overlooking the ocean with a breeze floating right through them and am still kicking myself for not jumping in this when I had the chance. The week days were dead in town and the weekends, MUCH more lively.

    Great vibes at this hostel and super pleasant staff and location! Unfortunately the rooms are SUPER hot and stuffy, and while staying there one night I got bitten 50ish times by unknown bugs and had to go to a clinic the next day for treatment. It was all in all a tough experience and I couldn’t stay again if they didn’t put in bug nets :/

    I've been in Costa Rica for 6 months now. The private rooms looked good, but the dorm was very little. There was no place for luggage, no electrical outlet to charge your cellphone, the room was very dirty and you basically sleep on wood, 'cause the mattress is super tin. About the staff, I think we had the only girl who doesn't want to work, 'cause the others seemed nice. She was rolling eyes when we asked help for something. The location is perfect, on the beach close to everything.
