The place is kind of funky, but that's maybe its charm. Bed was comfortable, water was plentiful and hot, breakfast good and filling, wifi worked fine in public areas. Free coffee, tea and water throughout the day. Super-nice hosts. I met several nice fellow travelers and had a few interesting conversations, which is why an hostel can be more desirable...

My room made me feel like I was staying in a very comfortable treehouse. There were 2 walls of window overlooking the garden where I spotted my first wild toucan. The trees are filled with bromeliads and birds. It is an easy walk to town and 2 blocks to the Jardin de Orquideas for a $3 tour of the amazing,...

We had such a lovely time at Bio Hostal! The family that runs the hostel are so kind and accommodating. They helped us to book all the activities that we wanted to do and were so helpful. The breakfast was excellent--fresh fruits, juice, bread and eggs. My husband was sick the last day we were here, so I went bird-watching...

I stayed one night at this hostel so I could do the cascades trail the next morning. The price is very good for what you get in return. It's not fancy, but it has a great eco and relaxing vibe (it fits its purpose). The staff were very service oriented and friendly, also breakfast was fresh and delicious. One of...

I stayed here for a couple nights in February and had an great time relaxing here. The hostel is quite beautiful and offers some sitting/hammocking areas with nice views of the surrounding cloud forest.
