Great hostel overall. Nice people/staff, great location and artsy graphics everywhere. Only complaint is the beds; felt like the mattress was from 1998. Spring were just about to pop through the thing.

I can’t say enough good things about Matilori. When I was originally booking I couldn’t decide between Las Mariposas and Matilori and I’m so happy I chose Matilori! I had 4 nights booked and I ended up staying for about 6 weeks! Samara is the best! A chill beach and surf town, and Matilori fits this profile and vibe perfectly. It’s a smaller hostel so huge community vibes. There are 2 kitchens that have everything you need. The location could not be more perfect. You can walk to the Natural Centre for food in 2 minutes and to the beach in 3 minutes! It’s also on a quiet side street so it’s peaceful at night. Very safe. The owner and all of the volunteers are amazing. Super friendly and helpful. You won’t regret staying here! I already can’t wait until I can visit again! Pura Vida :)

This place feels great! What a nice vibe. It's chill and social. It's one to two blocks away from so much in town , yet tucked away on a quiet street. Its a house so it feels like a home. It's clean, has good facilities, and plenty of space to get together or have some alone time.
