“Great little funky place!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Stayed at the Tucan on Feb. 15-17, 2012. Room 10 was perfect for me and my two traveling companions. Simple and very clean. Great communal area with hammocks to laze in. Staff members were sweet and helpful. Great vibe! Will stay again if in the area.

I stayed few days in the Tucan and had a good time. Very friendly and knowledge owner. Will tell you what to do and where to go. Offers sometimes free transport to the park and beach.
Small but nice and clean private rooms, very small dorms, left and right a communal area with hammocks, free coffee, good breakfast and restaurant. It's not real a hotel but a charming backpackers hub - and the only one in Uvita to meet other travellers.

I came to the Tucan with my boyfriend after spraining my foot and desperately needing a ground level room during high season! Elizabeth and her husband were able to accommodate us and went out of their way to make sure we were happy and to help me recover. This included helping me find a doctor, providing me with a cane and checking in on me to make sure I was okay and had everything I needed- all while preparing Holiday festivities. These are remarkable people and the atmosphere was relaxed, sociable and music friendly. The room was cute and with the Christmas dinner and pot-luck, this will be a Holiday and a hostel I will always remember.

Room Tip: We had a private room and private bath but they also have dorms available. Great rates for high seas...

This hostel is really a nice and cozy place. The rooms are clean but still cheap, bathrooms have hot water showers. The italian owner is very friendly and helpful and helps wherever she can. On the weekends you can enjoy funny jam-sessions. It is definitely one of the best hostels in Costa Rica.
