The staff are very friendly and helpful. The private room we stayed in was a bit like a prison cell. The kitchen area could have been a bit cleaner. The communal areas were very pleasant. This is quite a basic hostel, so that is what you get, but I cannot fault the staff and owner, who were all lovely.

Close to the bus stop, we were lucky to just walk in and find rooms. This is a delightful place to stay from start to finish. It is just a hostel so expect hostel living but it's one of the great ones. Be aware the even if it says it's booked online, that they keep rooms available for walk-ins. The...

Bruschetta and then spaghetti bolonaise followed by creme anglaise. $10 USD per person. Drinks not included $2000 colones for wine, $1000 colones for beer. You can bring your own bottle...

Wonderful atmosphere, extraordinary customer service and exceptional quality/price ratio! We tried the tree-house and it was such an experience!! No problems with bugs/insects at all! Just the chilling sound of the jungle! Really a special place!

Basic rooms but nice and young atmosphere in the common area! A good restaurant inside. Near the main road and several shop and information centre. The only negative notes was the absence of window of our room and the commission of 6% on the credit card. At the end of our travel we reget not to stay more in Uvita...

It's a really nice hotel. We were there for 4 days and we didn't miss our home. Location is great, from just about 10 minutes on foot you can reach a beautiful waterfall. It's near to a bank, a bakery, a supermarket, a pharmacy. Also it's is really close to the main bus terminal ("La Flor de la Sabana", 2...

Hi Monica, I was very surprised and sorry to read your review. It is very unpleasant for us to tell clients they have to leave but as you know we are a small hotel with only 9 private rooms and we cannot send away a client that reserved because a clients want or need to stay longer. We cannot know...

Only stayed here for one night but got the impression this was a really nice well run hotel/hostel. We arrived super early on a bus from Dominical and had to drop our bags there before rushing off for a tour. We had a lovely warm welcome. They were really apologetic that we couldn't check in yet even though it wasn't...

It was such a cute place to stay during our honeymoon in Costa Rica! It is very nice and the owners are very kind people who help me set up a birthday surprise for my husband. The hammocks in the common area are one of the best touches and are very nice to use during a midday rain! You can't...
