    We loved it so much we extended our stay. Warm showers, breakfast included and the sweetest hosts! Bikes to town are available and being in the jungle is totally worth the slightly longer trip to town. Feels like home, can’t wait to go back!

    It’s perfect in every way. Just off the main road in a quaint jungle I spotted a decent set of wild animals. Much better than any of the hostels on the Main Street. A hidden gem. In addition clean and cosy. The hosts were super nice and warm too I am def going back there Loved it Chetan

    Great place to stay. Beautiful and special. The couple who runs this place is amazing, they are creating a wonderful atmopshere, if you go to Puerto Viejo, you should have a stop here, in this lovely jungle-place.

    Beautiful hostel!!! I recommend staying here especially if you want a laid back atmosphere. It’s in the middle of the jungle. It’s very beautiful. Rooms and bathroom was very clean. It’s a walk to get to the town center. But it’s a nice walk or you can have the owner call taxi for about 3000 colones. Or rent bikes! I couldn’t have asked for a better hostel for what I was looking for as a traveler. Owners are friendly and helpful. Free breakfast which was fruit, toast, and coffee.

    It was great to stay here! Bathrooms are very clean (unusual in Costa Rica). There is a friendly dog as well. The hosts are a kind and helpful couple who are on site. There isn’t Uber in the area, so you probably need to take a taxi to the property from the bus stop in Puerto Viejo (takes about an hour to walk). Once you get to the hostel, you can rent a bike for $5/day to go back and forth from town or to the beach.

    Loooved this place. It is perfect for people who love nature and want to be completely immersed in it. It’s a bit of a walk from town but they have bikes you can rent! It’s a little closer to the Gandoca-Manzanillo Reserve which is crazy beautiful. There’s just a lot of bugs around because it really is in the jungle. I LOVED it because I’m an entomologist, but I know that’s not for everyone haha. Also felt very safe there and the owners are really sweet and caring.
