    Amazing stay! Wonderful staff, beautiful place, convenient location, great kitchen and communal area. Just remember when you say you want to go on a tour and the hostel signs you up (even before you pay), you are locked in to the tour! My friend rolled her ankle and couldn't go on the tour and the only reason she didn't have to pay is because there happened to be another person that wanted to go.

    Great hostel with a very good kitchen and common areas. The rooms are big and the beds confortable, but missing A/C.

    I enjoyed my stay at Martina's. There's a great vibe and plenty of space to meet new people, hang out and chill in a hammock or at a table. There are mosquitoes in the area all day and night due to the proximity to the sea and national park so be sure to bring repellent!

    Martina's Place is definitely the hostel to stay at in Drake Bay. It is very close to the boat taxi drop off, has nice amenities, and helpful staff. Would highly recommend!

    One of the most charming hostels in Costa Rica, and the best at Drake's bay. Best value for money, Friendly environment, clean, magical location. However, there was only a small fan, for a room with 6 to 8 persons sleeping. At some moment during the night, the room became a sauna and had to go out in the middle of the night. . Apart from this issue with the room's ventilation at night, highly recommended.

    We spent three nights here and were impressed by the quality of service by the team. They booked tours and transport and you could pay by card (with a small booking fee) which is great as there are no ATMs in Sierpe and Drake Bay. Private room was nice with two fans (needed), room was made up every day. Kitchen is big and spacious with lots of room and good facilities. Location is great, equidistant between the beach and shops/restaurants. Toilets and showers are shared between all guests.

    Martina’s Place has a great ambience. The kitchen and shared spaces are conducive to talking over meals. Great location, very close to the beach, grocery stores, and Drake Bay trail along the coast. I did the tour to La Sirena (booked through Martina’s) with Piccolino tour. Awesome tour guide and totally worth the price. Highly recommend! Wish I could have done one night in the ranger station — next time.

    Stay here was alright. Good location if you need to be close to “town”, boat launch, etc. Rooms were adequate and cleaned each day. Somewhat screened doors and also bug nets around beds. Showers have hot water. Friendly cute dogs. Something to note is that there is nowhere to lock valuables. The key to your room gets left at desk and there aren’t any safes. Also, you may find it a bit challenging if you plan on cooking many meals as some of the equipment is much older.
