    Great hostel! Very clean, comfy beds, actually decent pressure in the showers (and hot, if needed). A really good sized kitchen and chill out area. The guys at reception were really helpful. And perfect location in Puerto Viejo, just a couple mins walk from the bus stop, bars and restaurants, but not too loud. My favourite hostel of my trip so far.

    Had such a nice stay, we were here several nights and always felt comfortable and safe. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were always clean. Really close to everything you might need in the area, bus, groceries, restaurants, etc. Great experience.

    Really nice hostel. Clean and large, nice kitchen, nice bathrooms, good space for chilling. Very chill vibe not a party place. Right next to the grocery store and super close to the bus station, beach, and shops. Would definitely stay here again if I come back.

    Pagalu was a great hostel in a great location from Puerto Viejo. Next to a supermarket, a bike rental spot, and just a few minute walk from the main area of town. The kitchen area was great and cleaned very frequently!! As was the common area! Showers were hot and bathrooms were clean. Only down side was that the dorm rooms had a bit of a mildewy smell that resembled pee. When addressed at the front desk, they took note and got to cleaning right away. Overall good place to stay!

    - bag storage is essentially a closet everyone can use so the security is poor for that - they advertise hot showers but we never got hotter than lukewarm otherwise its a good location, seemed to be popular with travelers and had a good atmosphere

    Stayed for 4 nights. Chilled hostel but does lack atmosphere which is a shame as the rooms and social space is good. HOT showers!!!! Reception guys will give you the info when you arrive but ignore you the rest of the time and don’t give it off friendly vibes they are more concerned with cooking their daily meals, which perhaps adds to the non atmosphere. Location is good to town/restaurants/shops and you can hire bikes next door to go to the nicer beaches.
