The hostel has beautiful grounds, pool table, bike and surf rentals, a small library as well as basketball and volleyball. I felt very safe knowing there was overnight security and someone at the front... More

Talk about a true warming, welcoming, and relaxing atmosphere. Memo's Pura Vida hospitality was truly something that was purely authentic and genuine.

The hostel is in a great location right above a grocery store. Everything was near by and the staff is really friendly and welcoming. The rooms are nice and clean and they have air conditioning. There is a hot tub, bat, and a pool table that you can use without additional charges. In general Memo and the others make you... More

Came across this place by pure luck, planned on staying for 2 days and ended up staying for 8 days. As a young couple we prefer to stay in a private room and usually have to pay a little bit more to do so but this hostel was very reasonable. Not only were the rooms a very good price but... More
