Backpackers Manuel Antonio
Reviewed 1 September 2011

My quick vacation to Manuel Antonio would not be complete without my stay in this place. The place is decent and clean. Good Bathrooms, albeit common ones. And the price is great! And it even has a pool with a view! the Kitchen was economically complete! And the best of all, it is right by a bus stop and a grocery, which are two important things for a budget traveller!

The rooms are dark, but then again, we only use the place for sleeping. Plenty of space for relaxation, too! This will be one of my top choices of place to stay on budget and quick Manuel Antonio get-away!

Great experience and location! The location was close to the park and a bus came by the front of the hostel every 25 minutes to take you to the park.The pool was nice,the kitchen was well equipted and the overall hostel was great, Would recommend it for anyone wishing a clean,reasonably priced and enjoyable place to stay.

Terrible beds, uncomfortable mattress. No plug outlets..! Too many people per dorm, only 1 toilet for 10 people, gets dirty quickly. Old, run down, far from the beach. Pancakes for breakfast, everyday. Nothing special

We had a larger group coming in for an extended stay. The hostel was so helpful with setting everything up (even giving us a discount!). All the receptionists are awesome, but Cheri is the best! She's so nice and so helpful. The rooms are all large and the windows have screens on them. There are also huge fans to keep the rooms cool. We were never hot. The pool is very nice and all the hammocks are very relaxing. You make your own pancakes in the morning and enjoy them on the outside balcony where you can watch monkeys swinging around. There is also a sweet tarzan swing! This place felt like home and we did not want to leave. Also, the location is right between Quepos and the main part of Manuel Antonio so it's perfect!!

Free 10 minute phone calls every night! :)
