    Martinas place was great, exceptionally clean, the staff were really friendly and helpful, the room was quite warm as it’s fans not AC and the electrics cut off a couple of times but overall amazing place to stay and the snorkelling at Cano island and national park visit is a must!

    Staff was very nice and helpful. I stayed in the all female dorm room, which was nice because we had private toilet and shower, but is was extremely stuffy and humid inside because there were no windows. The hostel also has very bad wifi, so it made planning the rest of my trip very difficult.

    Bring earplugs. The road is loud, the birds are loud, and the hostel workers get up very early (6-7am), and if you are staying by the reception you will hear them talking all morning as people are leaving for tours, etc. 9am checkout was the earliest I’ve had anywhere. Common area was very social, met lots of people. Workers were very nice and very helpful in assisting us get to where we needed to go. Good location close to the beach and the main bar right in drake bay. Cute dogs there too!

    Decent hostel in a good location in Drake Bay. It is 5 mins walk from the beach where all of the excursions to Corcovado seem to leave early in the morning. Rooms were basic but clean and towels provided for a deposit. Staff were helpful booking tours. The WiFi was really quite poor and the main downside as others have said. You don't really go to DB for good WiFi but it seemed fine in restaurants nearby so I think is something they could improve in future, as it was a bit inconvenient.

    Locatie is prima en hostel is gewoon goed, maar privé kamer was echt verschrikkelijk. Naast een weg en de kamer is half open, waardoor het lijkt alsof de auto’s gewoon je kamer in komen rijden.

    The hostel is quite ok... it's just a bit annoying that all the trips are way too expensive!! They kinda have a monopoly in town and they scam you with a 13% 'tax' if you pay by credit card. The owner of the hostel owns the diving center and the restaurant and so all the money goes in to his pocket.
