The place is pretty cool the room is a bit small and sometimes specially in the nights to sleep is kind of hot even there's a fan in the room. We paid for a private room with shared bathroom. The mattress is fine, the pool is good and clean and the place in general is quite nice. You could have...

I stayed 2 nights here in a private room. What surprised me was that I paid for a private room was put in a room with a bunk bed, while I saw empty rooms with double beds in them. Not too big a deal, but odd. The kitchen wasn't as well equipped as other hostels I've been to in CR,...

Friendly staff but quite expensive for a hostel. Did Not meet the expectations raised by Lonly Planet but we only stayed one night. We had a private room for 40$ which had a fan, a fridge as well as a private bathroom which was a bit soggy and stinky. Mattresses have seen much better times. Highlight was the coffee free...

Stayed in double with shared bathroom. We've been in several hostels during our trip. I think the 35$ where pretty much. The Room is really small, maybe not more than 8m². The Communal Area is really nice with Hammocks and a good kitchen. The sanitary area was clean. Supermarket, bank, bus terminal, restaurant within 100 metres. The lonely planet calls...

The rooms and bathrooms weren't great, but liked the place overall. There was a large common space, and a nice pool. A lot of international backpackers of all ages; seems to be the most popular place in town.

Good location in Quepos with busstation in walking distance - bus to Manuel Antonio every ½ hour (280,- Colones). Jorge in reception could fix/help with everything. Only complaint: free WI-FI only has range about 2 meters outside reception -...

The Lonely Planet states that this is the best hostel in Costa Rica. My husband and I did not agree. The reception is tiny and so you have to wait outside until there is space to enter. The receptionist was not very friendly and was a bit too focused on my husband paying straight away rather than letting us see...

We had a great time here, the rooms were a little bit stuffy but not problematic. The pool was great, the kids loved it here and the owner was very friendly. It is very centrally located, within walking distance of town and the central bus station. The only downside was that the wifi only worked around the reception area so...
