    One of the best hostel experiences I've had! Perfect place to go as a solo traveler and meet others. Everyone here was so friendly and inclusive, they'll make you feel right at home. Staff was so great and helpful and the beach is less than a 2 minutes walk from the hostel. I 100% recommend anyone to stay here.

    Very nice hostel near the beach with people doing surf as the waves in this part of the city are huge. There is also a shopping mall 5 min. away. Good people.

    This is a great hostel, right by the beach with a great surf. The staff were super friendly, especially bonita Elia and Miguel. I booked for 3 days but stayed for a week, you will feel at home. Staff were Spanish so it gave me opportunity to practice my Spanish.

    Pura Vida is a peaceful homely hostel, frequented by surfers and pensive backpackers. The beds are cosy, the WiFi is great and the rooms and facilities are clean. Teresa at reception is welcoming, efficient and always helpful. The proximity to the beach, and everything else Las Canteras has to offer, makes it an ideal spot to stay to soak up the sun and culture.

    There is no hostel like this one. Pura Vida definitely is the best hostel I've ever been. The people, the staff members and the atmosphere in general is pure joy. Great location as well.

    Price was reasonable though room was a bit stuffy, not enough air-circulation. A beautiful terrace - which was a smokers' haven - sadly became off-limits to non-smokers due to this fact.
