    Great place! Loved the small pool to relax. Due to car issues, we stayed nine nights. Staff was very accommodating.

    My stay here at Ukinca was very nice. I was greeted by the friendly manager who thoroughly answered all of my questions. The staff was nice and made my stay better. The kitchen was really organized and clean. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at.

    Definetly the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed at! The staff is nice but is only helpful at the specified 9am-9pm times. Even if you ave a question before of after those times they get angry for you even asking. Other that the weird interactions while the staff was off the clock, the place was amazing and was a super short walk to the center of town and a short bus to Dominical also. Even though it says its air-conditioned, only some rooms are so if you want air conditioning ask first.

    Ukinca was a great place to stay, good value. Paul was amazing. Took time to answer questions about everything from the facility, the name, to local beer and arranging taxies. He takes security seriously and makes sure everyone is taken care of. The beds are comfy, the dorms have secure lockers you just need your own lock. The location is a bit out of the way on the highway but easy to walk to the super market and restaurants are within walking distance. Taxies are cheap and close by as well.

    Nice hostel. Pol is cool and helpful and wants to be a good host. The location is a bit far from beach, but fairly close to stores. Depends how hot it is. Good value overall. No ac but that's often the case.

    Very clean hostel, good beds, really nice bedroom, but at least when I was there I wasnt the kind of place to meet people, different athmosphere from other hostels in Costa Rica, they have a nice pool in the back. I chosed it because it was just a 10 min walking from the bus station, they kept my lugged after my check-out and helped me get a taxi when it was raining a lot. They could have basic things like oil to help us Cook since we are usually used to find those in hostels.

    The staff is nice and helpful, I was able to check-in early. I got a small tour of the facility and saw some roaches that freaked me out a little. The room and the bathroom were clean. This location is FAR I mean really far by walking to the beach. They did not have a working bike available either. The 2 they have had flat tires...

    Location is ok. Close to grocery stores and the bus. 30 min walk to the waterfall and 1 hour to walk to Marino Bellina. Staff were ok.. I asked about the activities posted on the website but was told "I don't know for you. It's very expensive." If you have time, go into the city and ask instead. Backyard is cute, the hammock and trees were very relaxing. Weren't too many other people around.. and quiet time is from 2200. So if you want a loud, social hostel then this is not it.
