This was the best hostel in which I stayed in Costa Rica. The best part is by far the vibe of it. There were many young and artsy people. We danced and jammed pretty much every night (although not till late at all, it was quite quiet during the night). The kitchen is very well equipped and lots of people were cooking and sharing meals. There are two normal sized fridges, which was enough for everybody. The crew lives there, at least a lot of them, if not all, so they also cook. It makes the place feel like a home. The owner was around at all times and the manager Rafa was quite helpful in any inquiry we asked. He knows or knows somebody for everything! Location is good with or without a car. Quite close to a supermarket and not too far from surfing point. Stay in the 7-bed room if possible. The room and the bunks are giant compared to the 6-bed ones. All of them have AC 8pm to 8am. Wifi was perfect and flawless. I worked remotely during my stay, as did a few other travelers. I didn't have any drops at all. The place is full of hammocks to have a nice nap, especially if it rains. There is a big place for yoga with lots of mats, although in my opinion they could use it more. Throw a karaoke night on that big beamer you have!

Hostel was fine, but the pods in my room were very coffin-like. The beds went into the wall instead of alongside the wall, which was very inconvenient for anything other than sleeping. It also made the air quality inside the pod poor, as there was no air circulation. I later stayed in a different room where the beds were placed alongside the wall, which was much better. So the quality of the stay depends on which room you get.
