    Fabulous

    17 Aug 2017
    We loved the hosts and the place was extremely clean. The only downside was there was a huge spider by the bathroom who had built a large web, but that's what you get for staying in the jungle! Overall, a great place to stay!

    Fabulous

    A little disorganized but not a bad place to spend the night. The room was open to nature so make sure you use the bug nets. The best part is that the beach is super close, and the owners are friendly.

    Very Good

    02 Feb 2018
    It’s a nice and chill hostel! Very cool common areas and nice kitchen. At the time of my stay i was alone in the hostel, some people stayed in the privat houses, which i found odd! The hostel is close to nature and wonderful beachen within walking distance and order places were just a bike ride away. The bus to Puerto Viejo and cahuita stopen right outside the hostel so it was easy to go in to the towns. The negative side are the beds. Very hard and i got som back problem from them.
