    Amazing location right on the beach with hammocks and chairs. Common areas are awesome. Twenty minute walk into town or you can rent a bike. Restaurant is super expensive but cocktails were good. Reception staff seemed a little off put sometimes. All and all an oasis in Puerto Viejo if you are looking to just chill out for a few days.

    Hostel is super nice right by the beach and the facilities are super comfortable. Each bed has a curtain for privacy, a light and a socket which I loved!! The only thing I’d say is that there is only one fan for 4 beds and it got pretty warm at night but honestly that’s the only thing that I could think of. Breakfast was typical and amazing. There wasn’t a lot of atmosphere but we were there in low season so that’s why.

    We stayed about 45 years at the Playa 506, joining in 1973 with my former wife Jacqueline. By the time our second son was born, we could really get the most out of the large shared kitchen and the generous breakfast. Unfortunately, our youngest son had his first bike experience only at the age of 15, as we couldn't afford the 8$ daily fee until my wife took back her job. This was not clearly stated when booking. Overall would recommend for shorter stays.
