    This place is just lovely! There is a real family vibe here, probably imparted by the staff who are very friendly and accommodating and who act as a family (you'll see them cook and eat their meals family-style everyday). The property is very clean, and the dorms are spacious. This is the only hostel I've seen that offers lockers large enough for all your belongings. Grocery store is next door, and the beach is a 5mns walk away. Great value for the price. I'd be happy to stay here again!

    A proper professional hostel. We went for a private room, which was charming, modern, functional, spacious, the same as the hostel as a whole. Common kitchen very well equipped, big fridge. And they recycle! Staff was very professional and helpful. Location couldn't be better. And this was the best value for money in our 2 weeks trip around Costa Rica. Definitely recommended!

    The location was great but not much of an atmosphere. It has so much potential but as a solo traveler found it hard to be there due to lack of people/social atmosphere.
