    I can talk about cleanliness, how great this hostel is, how friendly the stuff is, how easy it is to meet other travelers from all over the world but I would like to say this: I have been to dozen hostels in Costa Rica. This is the first one that has sharp knifes in the kitchen. This is big dea for someone who likes to cook at the hostel. And they have great frying pans! I came to the Puerto Viejo with hopes to stay maybe 3-4 days. It’s been 2 weeks and I plan to stay at least another week.

    This hostel was amazing! The location was perfect and it is a short walk to get to the beach/into the town. There is a larger supermarket twenty steps from the hostel! The hosts were so generous and thoughtful and we’re constantly there to help us with anything we needed. The hostel itself is very clean and quiet, making it a perfect place to come back to after a long day of adventure! I highly recommend Pagalu :)

    Definitely an awesome place to stay, the hostel owners are so nice and very helpful, they helped us whenever we had questions and called taxis for us since we didn't speak the language very well. The rooms and bathrooms were kept super clean and had a lot of fans to keep cool the hot days. It was a good atmosphere as well with a laid back vibe that seemed easy to meet people and make friends. Of course I have to mention it was only about a 5minute walk to the beach which is pretty hard to beat!

    My stay with Hugo and Cintia at Pagalu was a lovely experience! They were both so helpful and I couldn’t resist heading back for a second stay. The hostel was spacious and clean, on a quiet street, right near two supermarkets. It was a quiet hostel, but was exactly where I wanted to head back to after a party on the beach. Also they had the best lockers in their dorms that I have seen in a long time!

    This place was super clean with everything you’d ever need, staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and we would highly recommend staying here! The vibe is slightly on the quieter side compared to some other hostels but to be honest it means a great nights sleep and a good place to chill - it’s still very easy to meet other people in the hostel and socialise anyway!

    Had a great stay at Pagalu. It was super convenient right in town. We were in a 5 person dorm. The bunk beds were super sturdy so when the other person got in and out of bed I didn’t feel it move. The kitchen was clean and had everything you needed. There was a mix of ages that we’re staying there. Everyone was friendly and we found people to go out with at night, but it wasn’t too rowdy.

    Great place to meet other travelers with an atmospheric and welcoming common area. Good value for money and the staff was very accommodating. Only negatives were the location (slightly far away from the main nightlife area... which isn't saying much given how small the town is), an issue with the gate (we arrived home late one night from partying and our key got stuck and the broke off in the lock of the gate), and our private room was full of mosquitos (only for one of our 2 nights)

    Very clean and very relaxed hostel. Only thing I would say is that the lobby could do with a bit of music or something because it's so quiet in the main area which can make the atmosphere a bit weird. Overall really good hostel though
