    Bestes Hostel in Costa Rica. Leckeres, günstiges Essen, wunderschöne Anlage, nette Mitarbeiter. Das einzige was ich bemängeln würde, sind die kleinen Schließfächer in die kein Backpack passt und keine Steckdosen direkt am Bett. Aber das ist Jammern auf hohem Niveau.

    Das Hostel ist gut Ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Das Personal ist "freundlich" mehr aber auch nicht...machen einfach nur ihren Job und nicht mehr...das Pura Vida fehlt.

    The hostel is beautiful and you can reach it by foot in 10 minutes from the bus stop. The food served there is cheap and delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The whole atmosphere is more a party-hostel than a relax-hostel and you will listen to either the Reaggeton Hostel Playlist 2018 or similar music all day long, which is a littlebit annoying. Apart from not having a kitchen you can cook in, the hostel is super well equipped and relatively cheap for what you get.

    Sadly there was no kitchen you could use. We ha a tent, wich was pretty cool but if you have wet stuff to hang up there is no big options because the lines aren‘t covered. So if it‘s raining you don‘t have a proper option to hang up stuff. The pool is really nice. There are to slavk lines, one over ground and the other ist over the pool.

    Das Hostel an sich ist schön. Zimmer sind relativ groß. Duschen nur teilweise warm. Leider keine Küche, was meiner Meinung in jedem Hostel vorhanden sein sollte. Mitarbeiter sind sehr freundlich.
