Stayed here for 5 nights and felt super comfortable. Really nice community space where you easily meet people and can cook your own meals. Julie does everything to help the people out + the staff is superfriendly. Its a little bit remote (30 minutes walk to the supermarket) but that is part of the game :) Just get some beer, sit in the hammock and look into the jungle. Ps: For all travellers deciding to go please respect the night rest time... This is not a party place (which seems so be a challenge for young Americans) :D. But good news... Just some meters apart is a jungle bar with craft beer. How awesome is that!
Staying in this hostel is an incredible experience. It is like a huge tree house with incredible views of the jungle. The rooms upstairs have little to no privacy as the walls are made of wood logs, but the owner warned us in advance are we were fine with it. It was worth it for the views. The owner is extremely helpful and always has a smile on her face. Highly recommend
My worst stay in Costa Rica. The walls are open so I would only recommend staying at this place if you like large insects and bats flying through your room. Also, there were little brown "grains" on my pillow and in my bed that fell from the ceiling all night (I thought they were eggs from an insect). I didn't sleep all night. The hostel was aware of this disgusting stuff falling on my bed, but didn't warn me in advance. Nor did they provide me a refund. Oh let's not forget that the owner "did not have time" to speak to me the next morning because he was having breakfast and was "too busy".
This hostel is a gem, well hidden in the jungle close to to Uvita and it’s whale watching hotspots. Very friendly hosts, super clean rooms and dorms and a fantastic architecture- you even have a balcony where you can practice yoga in the mornings. We used the well-equipped kitchen to prepare some ceviche with fish bought very close by fresh from the ocean. If you have the chance, go there. It’s a great place to relax. The internet is super fast and they have adorable cats ❤️!
Unfortunately due to the photos etc I was under the expectation that this was more of a hotel than a hostel, but I was wrong. The common areas and location was beautiful, however the rooms in the guest house were awful- unclean, shabby and had a tiny light source/ one plug outlet which is too high up so could only charge one thing that wouldn't fall out. The showers and toilets were disgusting and the kitchen area was unclean due to guests being required to wash dishes. Also not very covid safe due to guests huddled around the kitchen constantly/. This hostel could be excellent if the owners clean up and refurbish some areas due to the great location and terrace. I also booked a yoga class in the morning, to which the teacher never turned up! She ignored us as she eventually came down having overslept by an hour or so. Unfortunately, I was glad to have only stayed one night.…
