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

    Clean hotel-like place 10mins from town walking. Small pool hammocks nice garden. Organised kitchen. No communal oil or coffee. Comfy bed and firm pillow. No privacy curtain. Plug n reading light by bed. No drinking fountain. I paid £3 for a bottle of water which I think is excessive so buy in supermarket 10 mins. Lockers. Room stuffy and warm in summer (verano) even with fans. Reception Elizabeth very helpful. Recommended

    Locks on Doors and lockers in the room. Very Nice kitchen. Friendly staff. However it’s a bit out of town, so be prepared for a bit of walking.

    A very nice and clean hostel, it looked brand new. Location is okay, close to a waterfall and a 40 minute walk to the national park. There is a possibility to rent a bike at the hostel. There was not much in the way of atmosphere, I only saw 2 other people in the entire hostel. If you are looking to meet lots of fellow backpackers, maybe look somewhere else.

    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.

    Very Good

    Like previous reviewers have said, this hostel is not social at all. It's located on the busy main road out of Uvita. Pluses, it was very clean, most of the staff were lovely and helpful, the bus stops almost directly outside and there are some nice cafes/bar/restaurants in walking distance...but it is along the busy road that has no footpath. I wouldn't stay here again.

    The hostel itself is great. Rooms are good with large lockers, best shower I have had in a long time and a lovely garden with pool. The downside is the town is a 3km walk so that’s not great. But if you want somewhere quiet to relax its ideal.

    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.

    We arrived at the property having booked 2 nights through hostel world, when we turned up they said they only had space for us for one night. Luckily I speak a bit of Spanish so could communicate but my friends had no idea what was going on. This meant we were without a place to stay on New Year’s Eve, having only booked this hostel as it was one of the only places available a month in advance! Receptionist was super unhelpful and laughed at our distress. And then tried to overcharge us, avoid!
