    The most amazing hostel 11/10! The staff is awesome and the location super unique. We had so much fun doing the treasure hunt and exploring the waterfalls and the canyon! Waking up to monkeys outside our window was pretty cool too. Thanks a lot! We’ll definitely be back!

    This place is amazing! We had the best time from fun treasure hunts to trips to the local canyon. This was one of our favourite hostels in the world.

    This place is worth a visit just on it’s own. Community feeling, forest wonders around you for hikes and activities and plenty of other things to do if you don’t want to only soak in the beauty of the place itself. Food offered at the hostel is wonderful but if you you are on a budget, bring plenty of own supplies.

    First thing about this place is that it has the best staff. Ayla was so helpful and knowledgeable about the area and things to do. Our stay wouldn’t have been the same if she wasn’t there to give recommendations and advice. The atmosphere of this hotel was so much fun the bar was always full of life but many people were going to bed early to get up early and hike so it was best of both worlds. Another thing is that they do have hot showers! In the middle of the jungle! Such a pleasant surprise!

    Great place to unwind for a few things, they even had rainy day activities! Vibe really depends on who is staying at the time. Prepared food is fantastic, with the option of also cooking for yourself

    The location is magical, literally in the middle of nowhere. Beautiful view from any spot, especially from the shared balcony, it's like you float with the clouds. We had a private room, it was equipped with blankets, necessary for the time we visited (July). The food was great really tasty and healthy and in really reasonable prices. Bus distance to the wonderful Celestine Waterfall (do visit) and the Gualaca Canyon (also do visit). The staff and the volunteers were really friendly and helpful.

    I liked being so immerse in nature. I love bugs and did not mind being surrounded by them. It s their home! I loved the hike up to the hostel, treasure hunt and happy hour spent in the cute little bar. Visiting during rainy season means being wet and cold all the time, because toilets and showers are not close to dorms. Family dinner on the terrace also became source of discomfort as we got soaking wet whilst eating. Blankets are provided, which is a good touch. Happy that I visited.

    Amazing hostel tucked away in the clouds! The food is great, alcohol decently cheap. The treks/scavenger hunts are super fun and unique!! The hostel itself has a great set up, the rooms are clean and not super overcrowded. The bathrooms/showers are clean. The only downside for us was the tab system, there were a lot of extra drinks put on our tabs that we didn’t consume. It got sorted out in the end anyways, must of been a mix up.

    Lost and found is a cool hostel in the jungle nothing else around it has great hikes and a few tours you can take. The nightlife is fun they have a cool late night spot to party. The food is average and a bit expensive but you are in the middle of the jungle so that’s expected the place could probably use some renovations just book the newer dorms.
