- “ The hostel is beautiful. Just as the name suggests, it's a hostel resort, not just a hostel. There's no kitchen or breakfast in the morning. Instead they have a restaurant so you end up spending more money. I was highly disappointing with how unfriendly and helpful the staff were. I did not feel welcomed at all. So it you're looking for a welcoming place with a great enviornment I wouldn't suggest staying here. ”

- “ Very well kept hostel. Nice pool and dorms. Bathrooms were also superior to most hostels. But with the constant rain a common room would be nice, with couches and decent lighting. A common kitchen would also be great. ”

- “ I've been traveling Costa Rica for several month from hostel to hostel, and I have not been at a hostel as good as this one ever. It functions like a hotel, and it's so cheap compared to anything else you'll find if you want to live on a budget. The staff was a amazing! ”

- “ Nice hostel, but for my opinion too expensive. The staff at the front desk wasn't very nice and never smiled - a pity. The facility itsself with its pool and lockers are very nice. ”
