  • Description

    Description

    We are a hostel in Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica located directly on the beach with an awesome view of the famous Salsa Brava surf break.

    We have 6 private rooms and 2 mixed dorm rooms.

    Our hostel gives you a bird's-eye view of one of the most interesting and unique places in the whole world. We offer a fun and social experience for our guests since we are located above one of the best bars in Costa Rica featuring fire shows, live bands and DJ's most nights of the week. It can be pretty loud and lively on the weekends which is a great fit for some people - but for others that are looking for peace and quiet it may not be the best fit so please take this into consideration before applying.

    We welcome all kinds of specialties and skills so please be sure to add that into your application subject along with the month you will be here. (e.g. Muralist/painter available in October).
