    Very lovely hostel. Great vibes and honestly so cute. We met so many other backpackers. The tent got very hot mid day as expected but everyone hangs around the pool then anyway. Would definitely stay here again.

    The room was large with comfy beds, the pool was great and the kitchen was nice as well. Lovely sun loungers by the pool and very clean place. The volunteers were nice but not properly trained on any tours and almost ruined our trip for the boat party. The other staff weren't very friendly.

    The dorms had good ac and was clean. Washrooms/ showers were just ok. Not a huge social atmosphere but great if you want to just have a chill place. The location was a bit far from everything but because it was a bit more secluded.

    I was exercising, and I used the outdoor shower in between my sets to cooldown/wash off my sweat (it is great that they have an outdoor shower). The woman owner decides to scorn/humiliate me in the middle of the hostel in front of the other guests by giving me a lecture and saying “YOU ACT LIKE YOU OWN COSTA RICAN WATER”. Like what?? Ok I understand conserving water is important. Can you pull me aside or talk to me about it privately? Does the water not go down the drain and get recycled??
