    The place is unique. hidden away from drake bay you walk 10 minutes from the san josecito beach. The hammocks above the tents are amazing to chill even if the rain is pouring down. The cabins are equipped with bathroom very nice. The food you get is amazing. Do the kayak tour the hostel offers and you will get to know the surrounding nature, waterfalls and the turtle station.

    It's a beautiful hostel in the middle of the jungle and with a private Beach. If you're looking for some relaxing days, i can highly recommend! Ricardo's Kayak Tour is very nice and there is a lot to see. Also the food was very good, freshly made and with a lot of heart. Rodrigo will arrange everything for you if you need help with something! We really enjoyed our stay. :)

    We had the most amazing time here! Ricardo, Jerlin and Carlos were so nice and helpful with organizing tours and always making sure we're having a great time. This place is paradise. Waking up to the sounds of the jungle and waves. If you're looking for a place where you can experience nature with all your senses, you should definitely go! We were really sad to leave but we will never forget our time here. While staying there check out Riccardo's tutle sanctuary. He is doing amazing work.

    Most beautiful spot we stayed in Costa Rica :) The facilities are really simple but enough! The location is very remote so you can enjoy the nature and animals. The breakfast which changed every day was delicious. Would 100% recommend

    Unbedingt davor essen kaufen und Bargeld mitbringen, der Supermarkt ist 2 Stunden zu Fuß entfernt!! Sehr ruhige, tolle Lage am Meer, viele Affen. Keine Zimmer sondern Zelte mit Betten, sanitäre Anlagen sehr einfach und kochen in der Küche kostet. Empfehlenswert wenn man die Natur liebt aber nicht für jeden geeignet.

    We went to this place because we wanted to do the guided tour through the Corcovado Nationalpark. We were in contact (email) with one of the manager - he told us that he will try to get us a tour - ok really kind but he didn’t told us that there is no possibility for a tour until we Arrived. Of curse we were really unhappy and he didn’t helped us at all to find an alternative. Beside of that the stuff was really unfriendly, the dorms are really dirty and the breakfast was just totally overpriced
