Descripción de la propiedad

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 many different styles 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, Mega Size 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 that, for 325 colones, will take you to Manuel Antonio National Park and Manuel Antonio Center, where everything has “tourist prices”, in few minutes. Bus leaves 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)

    Muy bien ubicado, los chicos de la recepción excelentes y el desayuno delicioso. El baño estaba bastante sucio y no le vendría mal una limpieza, y no hay agua caliente.

    La cama muy incómoda. Tenía un gato en la habitación y aparte de todo era muy ruidoso. En cuanto a limpieza dejaba que desear. En cuanto a baños había muy pocos para la cantidad de gente que se hospedaba.

    En el ba´ño de la habitación no había agua caliente y no lo solucionaron, nos ofrecieron utilizar los baños compartidos. El personal nos dijo que nos iba a sugerir ciertos lugares para ir y nunca lo hizo. La cocina no estaba muy limpia y los sectores comunes eran muy pequeños e incómodos. Se encuentra ubicado al lado de una carretera que es muy transitada por lo tanto el ruido de los autos es constante.

    Definitivamente no volvería, si bien es cierto es barato pero eso no quiere decir q no deba ser limpio. Las instalaciones pésimas, el ambiente es triste y desanima a cualquiera. El recepcionista hablaba inglés, solo inglés y no entendía nada en español (háganle como puedan). En pocas palabras, si tienen la posibilidad de pagar un poco mas de plata escojan otra opción. Nosotros caímos ahí por q no conseguimos más nada y solo estuvimos de paso por una noche.

    It is an okay place. Nothing really bad to say, but everything is old and dirty. There is only one place where you can charge your phone, and that is in the reception where all the smokers are. People are nice and all, but the atmosphere is weird and sloppy. It was VERY hot in our room, because there was only one fan, pointing to one bed. Location is okay, if you are fine with walking, and the bus to Manuel Antonio is right in front, which is nice Overall nothing horrible but also nothing amazin

    The reception lady acted careless. She only serves crappy panquekes. It's too far feom Manuel antonio and it doesn't look safe because there is no other hostel around. Our room didnt have towels, neither soup or toilet paper. Even thought its cheap, i wouldnt recommend it
