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 +70 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.

Such a lovely stay!! Perfect way to start my trip in Costa Rica. The place is small and beautiful, super clean and perfectly created! The amount of wildlife you can see while eating your breakfast is insane and it’s 10 minutes walk from the beach. I loved it here, staff were incredible! I extended my stay and would come back again! Id recommended this place to anyone I know!!

This hostel was immaculately clean and the staff went above and beyond to ensure our stay was as good as it could be. The rooms were spotless and comfortable, and the hostel was well equipped. Beware of the freezing showers, although that is to be expected backpacking. Isa was a gem, sent a driver to pick us up at the bus station for cheap as we arrived in the dark. Overall a lovely space close to nature, we saw a lot of wildlife including alligators just from sitting eating breakfast, which was really cool

One of the best hostel experiences I’ve had. Comfortable, safe, super clean, lovely and helpful staff / volunteers, nice open air kitchen & common area to cook and hang out with other guests. Beautiful property with lots of wildlife. Location is walkable to anything you want (beach, groceries, surf shops, etc) and there’s a good restaurant / bar right next door. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone going to Uvita
