  • Description


    Welcome to our piece of paradise! We are a husband and wife who opened this hostel 4 years ago in Puerto Viejo, a lovely and a chill Caribbean town in Costa Rica. This hostel is our home and we care deeply about it! We're looking for the right people who are responsible and caring to help us with the hostel. The hostel itself is small with a few rooms and a small camping area which makes this place very easy to manage. Our location is just a few minutes walk from town and has easy access to a beach path that takes you to many nearby beaches. The space is very chill and beautiful, and includes hammocks with an ocean view, big trees, monkeys, sloths, and the other animals that regularly pass through. It's a great space to get to know other travelers, practice your Spanish or just take time to relax and rejuvenate.
