You will feel like family and it is true what they say ... you arrive as a guest and you leave as a friend! It is super clean and the staff really fills you with gratitude.It is super close to different supermarkets and near the beach you can go from one side to another without transport because everything is just around the corner.

Great location, friendly vibes. Nice communal atmosphere. Kitchen had everything I needed. Stayed 10 days here and the dorm room was comfortable. Jen helped arrange a visit to the local turtle sanctuary for me! Matilori is on a nice quiet road with great cafes and restaurants and an ice cream shop, less than 5 mins from beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The upstairs dorm has a balcony with a hammock!

The hostel is close to everything you need and not on the main street so you can find some peace and quite. It has two kitchens with all you need for make your own meal. We stayed in a private room without bathroom. The room was clean but when considering the price (45$/night) it sounded wierd when they told us that we can rent towels for 5mil colons....
Some of the rooms are facing the comunial area so it may get noisy untill 23pm (quite time). Also, many ppl smoked in the outdoor comunial area so we did not fill comfortable to have our diner there.
Overall it is a very nice hostel with friendly staff and good atmosphare. Recommended for backpackers.

The Matilori is only 2-3 minutes from the beach and is close to everything like grocery store, drug store, information offices for tours. The pace is clean but the kitchen is a bit small. The staff is nice and it is very quiet at night.

Hostel Matilori is where it's at! Only two minutes from the beach and close to everything you need in town, the hostel has such a magic and a chilled out, friendly, welcoming atmosphere. It's a super sweet place that if you come to Samara you must try to get a bed! The garden area is great for socialising and meeting people, there are two good size kitchens and plenty of bathrooms and showers! The bunks are comfy and you have nice clean sheets when you arrive and anytime you need them. You can do your washing for your clothes and the guys who own the hostel also do tours to some amazing places near by for cheaper than what you'd pay on the town! Everything is cleaned more than twice a day and kept in really nice condition considering many people stay here and really 'live' here when they come! If you would like to experience Pura Vida in Samara, meet some very cool and special people then hostel Samara is the one for you! I loved staying here as a solo female traveller and I have already planned to come back!
