I stayed at Hostel Plinio with my friend for 3 nights in August. We absolutely loved it. It is such a peaceful atmosphere. I particularly loved the tree house feel of the place, the pool (which is very large for a hostel) and the hammocks. The two staff members who were there when we stayed were very friendly and helpful...

Stayed in a private room at their Bed and Breakfast property for two nights and adored the layout of the room and the hostel itself. The breakfast provided is delicious and something I missed upon leaving. The owner and the entire staff was so helpful the entire time. Would recommend and use again if I find myself visiting Manuel Antonio...

The hostel is decent for the price. Beds are alright, but my top bunk was extremely wobbly and every time I or the person on the bottom bunk moved, we inadvertently woke each other up because the bed was so wobbly. There was no hot water at any point during the day in our bathroom, which made showering uncomfortable. The...

Really enjoyed our stay here. We couldn't turn up on our arranged dates and the staff were great help in finding us some beds for the changed dates. Hostel room is one of the best I have stayed in and the hostel is in a peaceful location. Easy bus access to Manuel Antonio Park.

Hostel Plinio is a big recommendation if you are looking for a nice place to stay in Manuel Antonio. I havent been in a more spacious hostel in Costa Rica! You got great big and clean rooms and I loved the pool area!! If youre traveling solo and are looking for good company, you will find it here for sure....

So we booked Hostel Plinio via Hostelworld as it's the only way to book with a credit card and securely online. We booked a private room with Wi-Fi, A/C, and private bath, for a mere $50 a night. When we arrived at the hostel, it was as cool as it looked in the pictures. Lots of wind-chimes, cool artwork and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostel Plinio is one of the newest additions to the hostel scene in Manuel Antonio and is located in one of the original hotel/restaurant properties in the area. Plinio is quickly becoming one of the highest rated and most in demand hostels in the area! A fully equipped hostel with a large refreshing pool, tour desk, wi-fi, a delicious restaurant and bar, and a common kitchen. Guests enjoy having everything they need on location and the staff at Plinio strive to make the hostel a relaxing, tranquil, all inclusive experience. It is an excellent choice for travelers wishing to steer away from the party youth hostels and experience many of the comforts and ascetics of a rustic hotel with the communal atmosphere and prices of a hostel. Located on the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio Beach, Plinio is a great location for travelers seeking easy transportation to the main attractions without the hustle and bustle of being in the city center. With a bus stop located just outside the main entrance, the beach is a quick 10 minute ride away.Every room at Plinio has an ocean view. Including the dorms! And each include a breakfast of fruit, bread and coffee each morning.Accommodations range greatly. Backpackers may choose from 2 different types of dorms, the standard and the deluxe. Both types have two out door patios, their own bathroom, and plenty of space. But for a few dollars more per night, the deluxe dorm includes hot water, a private living room, and only houses 5 people. Upgrading to the deluxe dorm is first come first serve and can only be booked at the Hostel if there is availability. No matter which dorm you choose, you will not be disappointed! ... more   less
