    This location was so pretty but it’s a bit out of town. Easy to rent a bike though but could be scary at nighttime to bike back etc. But the beach is right there from the hostel which was super nice. And another plus is the bar and restaurant are on site. Rooms were a bit warm but it was okay.

    Located on a really nice beach a bit out of town. Bit pricey for what you get (I.e no aircon in the dorm). Short bike ride to town and you can rent bikes off them. Food is good but a little pricey but probably similar to the rest of Costa Rica. Free breakfast was really substantial! Would stay again.

    I stayed for 2 nights during the low season. The hostel is a bit out of town but easy to access if you rent a bike. Right on the beach with beautiful views. It was very quiet when I stayed which I enjoyed. Free beach yoga and live music were offered during my stay. Food was pretty good. Loved eating right on the beach. Would stay again.

    Great location/atmosphere and nice facilities. Very clean rooms and kitchen / equipment. Staff at reception not very motivated. Water not always available. Wifi very bad. Bike rental too expensive

    Playa 506 has everything a great hostel should have - right on the beach, looks great, has good, clean bathrooms, great facilities (including a great outdoor kitchen with cold, clean water) and a well-designed bar/restaurant/common area. It looks great, but there’s something missing... The dorm is like an oven (very hot!), few places to relax (chairs in the bar/common area look cool, but are quite uncomfy), few people to meet, kinda pricey and the staff seems mostly apathetic.

    Hostel is right on the beach and there are lots of places to relax and enjoy the view and pura vida vibes. However, one of our rooms was literally a 2 person dorm with one very small window, no shelves, hooks or even a mirror. The room was also located above the kitchen so it got very hot. The price was very steep for this dinky little room. If you stear clear of private rooms you’ll probably be fine. A bit outside of town so you’ll need to take a cab or bike if you want to go out

    2 people had their bags stollen from a locked dorm room while I wasn't there, so definitely make sure you bring a lock and use the lockers! The location is a bit outside of town, farther than I expected and too far to walk. You can rent a bike for $10/day or take a cab (which are few and far between) for 2,000 colones each way. The atmosphere was great and the staff were nic, plus it included breakfast and they had hot showers. Overall it was ok but I would probably stay closer to town next tim

    DON’T STAY HERE! During our stay the water was only functional for two hours a day 7:00am-8:00am and 7:00pm-8:00pm - we were not provided advance notice of this situation. The hostel explained that they were being punished by the government for failing to have rain collection units. The hostel itself is nice, until you’ve stayed long enough to recognize the horrible infestation of large mice. When we brought this up to the staff they were rude and seemingly unsurprised. Pick another place!
