I stayed at this hostel with a girlfriend. We booked a private cabana with two beds by calling directly. Each cabana has a small porch with a hammock, though if you get a shared room there is a great hang-out spot in the front of the hostel with several hammocks to enjoy. Breakfast is included with the stay: eggs, bread,...

I ended up staying here 5 days but that's in great part due to the fact that I couldn't be asked to pack my bag again and search for another place... The room I was put in (number 4) was very dark and a bit small, but otherwise it was clean and there was hot water in the shower (most...

Itapoa was a wonderful hostel to stay at. It is clean, provides mosquito nets, and even includes a delicious breakfast. The owner of the hostel is a friendly lady who will go out of her way to help you. I forgot my computer at the hostel and they even shipped it back to me. I definitely recommend staying here

It's a great place to stay, I loved it here! The rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated. The family that run this place are very welcoming and friendly too! It's in a great location, just a 30-45 minute drive to Montañita, a few minutes walk to local shops and the beach and a 10 minute drive away to the...

We stayed here for 5 nights just after New Year's. We were in the cabin on the business cards. Great location right across from the beach but not in party central a few blocks down.
