    Best hostel we stayed at on our 3 week trip. Great vibe, wonderful AC, clean rooms and kitchen, and fun staff! The hostel is located right above a little market and is a 3 minute walk to the beach. Highly recommend!

    We stayed in a private room and it was great with the A/C. Location is perfect just a short walk to the beach with good surf. There’s a supermarket below which is also handy & the kitchen is perfect for making your own food (as Costa Rica can be quite expensive).

    The owner is awesome here. Super helpful and always friendly to his guests. Makes you feel very welcome. Location is good above a supermarket and the back lounging area is a nice place to hang out and meet people. Right across from banana beach which is always a plus as well. Bathrooms could use a little love but that’s my only criticism.

    The place is right on the main street on top of a supermarket so location is great! Some of the facilities like the swimming pool were not working... The place is ok, although for the same price I found other better options.

    The people running the hostel were nice but there was quite a lot of people actually living there rather than travelling so it often felt like you were intruding on someone home, especially when it came to cooking. When we were there, there wasn’t many travellers. The “pool” had no water in it and We were told the pool would be filled up but I don’t think they had any intentions. The beds were awful. It felt like there was no mattress just wooden slats.
