Property Description

Hostel Vista Serena is the first hostel in Manuel Antonio designed for young people. We are recommended by the Lonely Planet guide and the Hostelling International. Set on a mountain, surrounded by jungle, with awesome views of the Pacific Ocean, the hostel is the perfect place to experience the peace of paradise and the thrill of local attractions.

Our hostel is specially designed for foreign visitors. You get the rainforest and Costa Rica's most beautiful beach, and still have all of the comforts of home.

We run a small, secluded hostel, and offer personalized services to our guests. Our goal is to cater to the individual - with a little Costa Rican touch!

Very Good

You get what you pay for. This a very basic hostel with a beautiful view of the sunset and ocean. Good location to town. Kitchen is incredibly basic and we needed a lighter and paper to light to stove top. JC is nice and helpful. Worst bed I’ve ever slept on.

Very dirty, dormitory smelled like cat and the cat was even on my bed when I arrived which I think is unacceptable. Bed was uncomfortable and sheets were not clean, just like the kitchen and the bathroom. And overall just a really weird atmosphere. But the view is beautiful and the owner was helpful. Of course it’s very cheap but still basic cleanliness can be expected
