    Really nice hostel that we stayed at on the way from Bocas to Santa Catalina! Nestled in the mountains, roots hostel has a small family vibe that I enjoyed. The owner is super nice and tells you about all the great things to do that are off the tourist track. The room was a little loud at night because it is mostly open air but otherwise a really lovely few days!

    The hostel seemed more connected to the local community than I expect the lost and found hostel would have been. As a result we had a wonderful tour of a local coffee grower who was friends with our host, our favorite 3 meals from a family restaurant, and good directions to hiking trails. I appreciate the efforts of lost and found for creating those trails. Easy access to the hostel from the bus stop.

    Roots Hostel was a hidden jewel in Hornito! Super small, cozy and familiar hostel, with the best vibe and amazing view over the mountains! Close to some hikes and highlights of the area! Don't expect the cleanest and most comfortable hostel, in the end it's all made of wood (amazing construction), but the atmosphere for sure made it one of the best hostels of my trip so far! Perfect for someone who wants to rest and recharge energies in the mountains, away from the parties and excess tourism

    Very Good

    It is very basic and not for everyone. If you expect some luxury, go elsewhere. No drinking water, you have to boil it. Wifi was okay but some time sporadic, but you are in the mountains. The beds were not that comfortable. It is a somewhat open hostel as it is built with wood, it gets colder at night but a blanket is provided. The kitchen is small but has the essentials for cooking. There is a terrace with nice view. No lockers, I did not try the shower as I stayed one night.
