Stayed here for four nights in mid May. Although it may not feel like it when you first arrive the hostel is in a great location within easy walking distance to some great museums, the cultural plaza, bus stations and all amenities. Stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. The room was basic but had great nights sleep and...

Good atmosphere. Friendly.The kitchen was well stocked and there were wonderful little areas for privacy. I think the owner Brian runs a tight ship, encouraging the mixing of people. Unfortunately, the bedrooms and bathrooms let him down. A total revamping together with a large dose of cleanliness would transform this hostel into a wonderful place to stay in. And of...

Came to Hostel Bekuo on the last day of my trip, and Brian and Tony greeted me with open arms. The hostel itself is clean, and with open concept that allows you to interact with others easily. The neighborhood seems relatively safe and quiet. The female dorm in which I stayed in is very clean, bed is comfortable. Since it...

I traveled to Costa Rica for my first solo trip in September. I decided to stay at a hostel for cost and ability to easily meet new people/fellow travelers. Hostel Bekou has a gated entrance. It is close to a grocery store and the bus. There is a cute little garden with a bunny that resides there. He/she is very...

It was very easy to make a reservation for a bed, no complications at all, so that was perfect anyway. When I arrived at the hostel, I was immediately blown away how cozy the whole common area was arranged. Everything was explained to me in a very friendy way. The common bedrooms have their own bathrooms, which is amazing! You...

This is a great place to socialize and meet fellow travellers. Owner, Bryan, is friendly, present and approachable. Large garden with a resident rabbit. Huge tv room with free Netflix movies. A pool table and plenty of board games. A large organized, clearly labelled and clean kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. Love the free pancake and pineapple breakfast....
