    Matalori is excellent! The guys are all friendly and helpful. They all speak Spanish and English. If you are wanting to practice and learn more Spanish, Fran is enthusiastic and encouraging, to help teach you. They play good background music, (not loud) to maintain a nice beach/vacation vibe, Clean Hostel, clean Bathrooms. I booked a private room for 2 nights, and stayed for 8. Would have stayed longer, if I didn’t have work to get back too. I would stay again, and strongly recommend.

    Very nice and cozy atmosphere! The staff did not seem like staff but really interested in us and our trip, like they were experiencing Costa Rica with us. We really enjoyed our time there!

    Loved this hostel so much I went back again during my trip! The staff are super friendly and will hang out with you at night time in the garden. The place was cleaned everyday and they actually had 2 kitchens to use.

    We loved our stay at Matilori and regret leaving after 3 nights. It's just been so chill and the group of people including Staff Fran and Oscar was simply great. Felt like a home not a hostel. Don't expect a fancy spotless place but a cozy Home filled with relaxed people and you'll love it :) would definitely stay again !!!

    Wish there was AC in the rooms, but other than that I absolutely loved my stay here. Shout out to Oscar for teaching me how to play dice and to Rebecca and Fran also for being great hosts.
