    We absolutely loved our stay here! We booked a three bed private room and were met with a huge cabin, two double beds and a private kitchen. The hostel owner is so friendly and really helpful. The facilities are all clean and plenty of tools to use in the kitchen. The location is great for the whale tail and the waterfalls are about a 40 min walk (but there’s some nice cafe’s along the way if you get caught in the rain).

    Highly recommend this hostel. The staff here are amazing and very helpful, the facilities are cleaned daily, and the overall atmosphere is great. There is coffee and a free cooked breakfast every morning, and they are extremely accommodating to any food allergies. I will stay here again if I am ever in Uvita.

    Very nice hostel, it is very quiet so i’d recommend if you want to chill for some time. However it’s definitely not a party hostel if that’s what you’re looking for

    incredible energy, I felt immediately relaxed and at ease there. breakfast is epic (but quite late - from 8 onwards). Beds were really comfy, properly clean. No charging socket or side lights, but everyone in the room was considerate. Cannot rate this place enough

    It's a nice place and the stuff is really friendly however the vibe wasn't great. Breakfast is served quiet late (8 am) while most people wake up much earlier (so if you want to check out the surroundings while not being too hot, it's not ideal). I think that a lot could be done to make this place really cool! So in summary: it's a relaxing place but not the greatest vibe!
