    I was delayed from flying out of drake bay, and was able to find a dorm bed at this hostel. The staff/owners also personally gave me a ride to the airport the next day, and great conversation was exchanged. Big kitchen, hammocks, reading area, board games, showers, and lockers available. yes....would stay here again. Out of the costa rican hostels ive been bouncing around in...i would not hesitate staying here again. Pura Vida. Especially for the price.

    Wonderful place. Great kitchen. Everything you need, incl. towels and rubbish cans which some places lack. Organized well and efficient. I love the name tags on beds and the individual fans. Will stay here again. What I would ask is that they add individual reading lamps for the dorm beds. If one wants to sleep but another wants to read, it's a problem. Also more hooks and shelving in the dorm rooms would be nice. I like the cotton rugs. Maybe add more? But great place overall.

    I really enjoyed my stay. The staff were fantastic, the dorm was thoroughly cleaned every night and there weren't many mosquitoes around (visited in March). The atmosphere was nice, with travelers from all over socializing in a chill way. Most people turned in early to get up early for the tours they booked or the beautiful hike along the beach - it gets really hot after 10am.

    Basic hostel in a great location. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and a grocery store. The room was basic, but all you need with a bathroom, shower and personal fan in your bed. The kitchen area is great and well equipped making it easy to cook cheap meals.

    Overall a decent hostel. Kitchen was nice and dorm room even had an ensuite shower which was nice. The hostel was strangely empty when I was there in high season which meant I had an 8 bed dorm room all to myself. A decent social vibe to meet fellow solo travellers but not the greatest. Lots of hammocks for chilling out and super close to everything. Friendly staff and easy to book stuff from hostel. I think I would recommend but had some areas for improvement. Thanks for the "private" room stay

    Brake bay is a really tiny village. 3 restaurants and 2 supermarkets, regarding accommodation there is not must option. It was ok at Martinas place, the kitchen needs to be updated regarding equipment and cleaned. Wifi sucks! Staff could be more friendly at the reception desk. Important note, if you arrive by plane you are stuck at the airport, no taxi there only private taxi which cost 20$ per person.
