    Everything about this hostel is incredible except for the front of house service staff. The majority of them look tired, they seem to have no interest in the guests unlike other hostels in Costa Rica and looked as if they wanted to be doing anything else but wait on tourists. But the location, and hostel itself are so fun. Definitely stay in one of the cylinders, they’re perfect for two!
