The Lion Fish Hostel is located in the center of town, only 150m from the bus stop. It offers amongst others free WiFi, warm showers and free morning coffee from 6-9. The hostel is quite young and run with the help of volunteers, it is therefore a very social hostel. The owners is a couple with very different backgrounds: Elias is born and raised in Puerto Viejo, loves surfing and is the right person to talk to regarding anything surf related (and for any other question about Puerto or the area around for that matter). Mari grew up amongst fjords and snow in Norway, but totally gets why you want to visit Costa Rica and Puerto Viejo in particular.

We are located in one of the best areas of Costa Rica, Puerto Viejo. In this sense, from our facilities you can reach some of the most renowned attractions of the area such as Playa Negra, Playa Cocles and Comisariato Don Manuel León, amongst other interesting spots and landmarks of our area.

We have several accommodation options to suit the needs of diverse kind of travellers and guests. In this sense, we have private accommodation rooms ideal for couples travelling together, meanwhile for the venturesome travellers we have dorms with different capacities. Upstairs, you will find a spacious kitchen and a lounge where we are having movie nights. At the back we have a nice garden ideal for both relaxing with a book and pre-party before going out. We are also starting other weekly activities in the hostel which will be advertised.

    The location is great, staff is very nice and helpful. It is not so clean in the hostel. Bathrooms are not so clean and every day for a couple of hours there is no water. The dorm that I slept in smelled like a drain, during the night I woke up because of that smell.

    The lionfish hostel was all in all a nice place, It was quite big, has a bike rental, big light kitchen and one indoor and one outdoor chill area. The air in the rooms in quite bad, it's smelly cause there is only a fan no AC and no fresh air, the mosquito net was broken so I had some bites. The staff is not really talking to you they are all volunteers and stay in their group of people so I missed the communication with each other and therefore the atmosphere was influenced.

    The hostel seems to have more volunteers than guests, so the experience highly depends on whether they are engaged or not. There are only three showers with hot water, so you may have to wait in line. The bar and garden area is nice and cheap. It's not a bad hostel, but it definitely could be better with a little effort.

    The kitchen and chill out areas a very nice and the bathooms are ok. BUT: It seems like there are more volunteers then guests at the hostel what leads to, that at dinner time the kitchen is occupied by the volunteers. Also the bar is ruled by them, playing their music (bad taste) very loud and partying all night long. All these reasons creating a weird atmosphere in this hostal.

    Das Bad war vollkommen mit diversen Insekten und Kakerlaken bevölkert. Der Geruch war ekelerregend. Die Matratze roch übel nach Urin. Die elektrische warme Dusche (die nicht warm war) hat auf die gesamte Dusch Vorrichtung Strom übertragen (lebensgefährlich) und auch nach Hinweis hat das Personal nicht reagiert! Die Küche und das gesamte Geschirr waren heftig verschmutzt und nicht benutzbar! Die Mitarbeiter (Volounteers) gaben zumeist den Eindruck man sei nicht willkommen.
