Property Description

Karandi Hostel is the perfect place for nature lovers and those looking for an authentic Costarican place. Recently open, it was built with techniques and materials that allow a better interaction with the environment. Comfort in our rooms was the goal, while visitiing the Tropical Rainforest.

Located in the proximities of the Marino Ballena National Park and just 2 km away from Uvita, we offer mixed and female only dorms. All with a lavatory, terrace with garden views and shared bathroom. We introduce the concept of retractible beds in the zone, making possible to increase dorm size and turning rooms private. Spacious gardens, shared kitchen and a small forest we call: Reserva Karandi in which you can spot +200 birds species, mammals and multicolor insects.

Even when the area´s main attraction is whale´s sighting, there are multiple options, some of them at walking distance from Karandi. Beaches, waterfalls, rivers and many more, come and enjoy of one of the most biodiverse places in the Planet. Pura vida!!!

This hostel was great! Clean, comfortable, and close walking/biking proximity to everything. Staff is great, and the Kinsu restaurant next door is delicious and super convenient.

Clean and comfy rooms, amazing garden where you can see small crocodiles, colibrìs, iguanas… And a sociable atmosphere. The owner is really kind and has great recommendations to visit the area. The hostel is 10 min walk from the beach which makes it ideal for surfers too!

Amazing place with beautiful nature in the property Really quite and relaxed which for me was amazing. The staff are really nice and helping Peoples did talk to each other but I wouldn’t say it’s *the *hostel make friends (which for me also was good )_ at least on those days I stayed. The kitchen is nice Everything was super organized and clean all around- kitchen, rooms and toilet. The only thing for me was that at night it was so hot in the room but what can you do about that
