Pura Vida Hostel - Manuel Antonio. Dormitory and private rooms, hot showers, excellent location and amazing staff - you will feel right at home!

If you come from San Jose, you have to take a bus in Tracopa bus Terminal it is close to Plaza Viquez Av,18 , street 5; you can buy a ticket for a direct bus that cost around $10 USD and it takes about 3 hours to Quepos. After, take a bus to Manuel Antonio (every 20 min), ask to the bus driver to leave you in front of Pura Vida Hostel, it takes around 7 minutes from the bus Station, or you can walk, it takes 15 minutes but the hill is tough.
We have fully stacked and always CLEAN communal kitchen with microwave, 2 fridges, plenty of work space, some spices are included, and 2 stoves to cook on...

Breakfast Included: pancakes, coffee and tea.

We have private rooms and dormitories depending on your budget: Private rooms with private or shared bathrooms with hot water showers. Some rooms have safes and lockers. Dorm Rooms: We have 3 types to fit your budget – you can choose a dorm room for 6 people or 8 people with shared or private bathrooms. Rooms are cleaned daily, the bathrooms twice daily and we are very particular and meticulous about the cleanliness of our hostel, the common areas and the rooms.

We have an excellent location in the pure jungle right outside of Quepos. We have Titi Monkeys that are regular visitors to us. Right around the hostel you can spot many incredible animals: Toucans, close-to-extinction Titi Monkeys, White Face Monkeys, Sloth, Iguanas, humming birds...

We are walking distance to Quepos where everything is MUCH CHEAPER – because you are getting local prices with many restaurants, shops, grocery stores, bars, night life, Fresh Farmers market (Friday and Saturday), a marina, local public beach /BBQ area on a beautiful point.

We have a bus stop right in front of the hostel for 340 colones, it will take you to Manuel Antonio National Park and Manuel Antonio beach, in few minutes. Bus every 20 minutes.

We have excellent, happy and always smiling, bi-lingual staff that have an incredible wealth of knowledge of the local area, tours, shuttles, and of Costa Rica. We can help you arrange all your activities, your next hostel stays, recommend off the beaten track attractions (like the Secret Waterfall – from which you can jump - and The Secret Beach)

Come to stay with us if you want to meet great people from all over the world, have fun, party and experience the real Pura Vida Atmosphere, clean hostel and fantastic staff. We would love to meet you.

    The Owner is a really open and nice person. During the Day she was always there. The Hostel is big and clean. It has a really nice area / Balcony to chill outside. It has a Kitchen you can use and a very big Dining Room. Chantalle cocks pancakes with bananas in it for you and there is Coffee/ Tee/ Water. I think for this price- it is amazing what you get (for costa rica....) The Hostel is near Quepos (much better than to be at the Manuel Antonio side) I would definitely come back!

    The location of this hostel is just beautiful, it feels like a little treehouse. Pancake breakfast was really nice. Really comfy Chill out area and nice balcony. The kitchen wasnt that clean but I think that was just due to some other guests who didnt clean After themselves.

    Die Lage des Hostels war perfekt, weil man mit den günstigen Shuttlebussen schnell und einfach zum Nationalpark gelangt, gleichzeitig aber noch zu Fuß nach Quepos laufen kann. Die Mitarbeiter waren nett und die Atmosphäre ganz gut, sofern noch andere Leute da waren (aktuell in der Nebensaison war nicht viel los). Insgesamt war es aber leider nicht sehr sauber, auch die Küche ist sehr veraltet. Außerdem gibt es im Zimmer keine Locker. Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis inkl Frühstück hat gepasst

    Danielle ist ein sehr engagierter und sympatischer Hostelmanager. Die Matratzen waren die besten bisher auf unserer Reise. Küche ist etwas eklig aber auch daran wird er arbeiten. Ansonsten toller Aufenthaltsbereich und durch den Anstieg bleibt man fit.

    Ganz nettes Hostel mit netten Mitarbeiter*innen. Die Küche und insbesondere die Bäder waren aber leider nicht soo sauber und auch die Internetverbindung hat deutlich zu wünschen übrigen gelassen. Dafür ist das Frühstück, Pancakes mit Ahornsirup jeden morgen, mega lecker!

    Kein gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Für die Gegend war der Preis zwar rekativ günstig aber die Ausstattung und der Zustand des Hostels sind wirklich nicht gut. Es sieht alles alt und etwas heruntergekommen aus. Die Lage in der Kurve einer relativ stark befahrenen Straße ist ebenso wenig einladend.

    We did not enjoy the stay in the hostel. There was mold everywhere even in the matresses. The whole hostel was smelling of it too since there was no ventilation. We got two small Pancakes for breakfast which wasn't really enough. The kitchen equipment was old and dirty as well. Definitely no recommendation.

    DZfür insgesamt ca 40$Bad/Nacht mit eigenem Bad ist für ein Hostel echt harter Tobak. Dazu: Waschbecken dreckig, Ventilator im Zimmer war kaputt, einzige Steckdosen waren im Bad, Matratze des oberen Bettes hatte leichte Sporenspuren,"Pancake Frühstück" =zwei gefühlte Gummilappen, Überwachungskameras gibt es, aber nicht bei den Locker ,als wir nach Locker für die Backpacks fragten, wurde uns gleich ein Late Check Out angedreht. Schlüsselpfand wurde vergessen zurückzugeben.

    Positiv: Nette Hotelleiterin und gute Lage (Nah an Quepos und MA NP). Negativ: Sauberkeit kaum vorhanden. Es ist richtig dreckig sowohl das Bad als auch die Zimmer. Es riecht auch sehr unangenehm . Die Betten sind total alt und durchgelegen. Es gibt keinen Safe. Also besser ein anderes Hostel buchen!
