    Stayed for 2 night in the dorm, was absolutely perfect! You're in the middle of a jungle with nice hiking options around. Please note there is no kitchen which I didn't expect but everyone raves about the meals that are prepared by the owners. The place is run by the kindness chilled out couple with a baby who never stops smiling. Yes, there is no hot water but you're in the tropics and if you sit in the sun for 15 minutes you won't mind the cool water.

    My partner and I booked our stay at the Eco Lodge after a stint in Panama City. We originally planned to stay for three nights, but after our first night had already decided we wanted to extend our stay by an additional night. The Eco Lodge is incredibly sustainable, warm, friendly, clean, and cozy. We absolutely loved our stay and have no doubt we will be nostalgic for the community here. Thank you for the most wonderful time. We hope to be back someday.

    Had a fantastic stay. Amazing place to take in and enjoy the beautiful countryside. Some great hikes in easy access to the eco lodge but also a great place to relax for a few day, especially if you’re on your way to the city like us. Food was delicious, staff and owners were really helpful and friendly. Very chilled atmosphere. Can’t recommend enough!

    The staff were very accommodating. They bused us in themselves and were helpful with our future planning, figuring out buses ect. The food was also amazing! They had house made wine and hot sauce that left me wanting for more! We planned to stay for one night and ended up staying for 3!

    Everything was really great. I originally just planned a single night, but extended for a a second. Could have stayed longer. Host was very attentive. If I could make one recommendations, make hot showers available. It can get chilly there at night and a warm shower would have made the stay perfect. There was an electric shower head in my dorm that appeared hooked up, but it must have been broken side I didn't get any warm water.

    Great hostel- we went in wet season so it was really quiet. No kitchen or facilities to cook for yourself and food provided by the hostel was quite expensive but really tasty. Walks/ activities in the local area were phenomenal.

    Gorgeous, sprawling property with a natural swimming pool in the river. It's a mission to get to, but well worth it. The owners and staff are wonderful folks. Bring plenty of insect repellent, even better if you have an InsectShield sleeping bag liner for nighttime (or any other permethrin-treated clothing). They offer rides into downtown El Valle for $3 which is great!

    Very Good

    The place is indeed environmentally friendly run; however, many things have been neglected eg. there is a huge closet, but no rod or hangers. Shutters on windows are almost impossible to open, rusted shut or simply no hinges any more. Furniture is old, falling apart and smelly. No hot water. Don't trust the old reviews - there is no kitchen use to store or prepare food and there are no stores or restaurants in walking distance. Veggie dinner (``$10) was penne, potatoes, bread & rice pudding.
