    We loved caribe mar. We made amazing friends there and the workers were extremely nice! There was a gorgeous friendly cat on the property also. It was a very chill relaxing hostel and beside the centre of Puerto Viejo! 10/10 🌺

    awsesome ! It’s a new hostel so they still try to fix a few things but all in all the best ! It’s literally 2min away from the center and a supermarket. Each bed has its own fan, the kitchen is sooo big und clean. Not very busy, so you‘ll not be very socialized but for that money definitely recommendable !!! Cheap friendly good located by clean !

    A nice place near everything, the instructions on how to get there aren’t very clear and when asking locals for help nobody knew where it was (we had just come from panama so had no sim/Google maps). We were overcharged $9 when we arrived which we later realised, they did rectify after a lot of explaining but not sure how it happened. The bedrooms are very small and hot but each bed has a fan and plug, good kitchen, hot showers.

    A little off the beaten track but good value for money in the money pit that is Costa Rica. Staff super friendly and kitchen and rooms very clean. However the rooms were so tiny and there was very little ventilation! We had fans but air conditioning is definitely needed. Also needs more communal space

    Not the greatest place where we have stayed. We stayed in one of the private rooms and had a broken toilet and the water was cut off for a few hours. They did fix the toilet the next day and compensated us for the inconveniences. Also there’s no housekeeping so the room is not cleaned during the stay and fresh towels are not provided (in fact we had to ask for towels cause they were not in the room). The location is great and the staff was nice but there’s no hostel vibe at all. More a 1 star hotel vibe. Al
