    The owner is so nice, and its a really cool place, you feel like you are a bit away from the city even though you are right in the middle of it :)

    They overbooked and didn't let us check in. We had booked earlier in the day after an airport delay and we got in later than expected. There was no room for us.

    They overbooked and then we had to look for another place to stay. It was unfortunate to have to go door to door to find another place after we arrived. There was no check in information on expedia so we had no timeline expectations.

    Amazing experience!!!

    We could not have found a more perfect place to stay while in Puerto Viejo. It was a block or two from the town center. It was clean and comfortable. There was a great sense of community there. The host, Martin, was very warm and welcoming. We stayed in the private room with a private bath. Very laid back vibe with nothing but positive energy flowing. Very creative and artistic atmosphere. Staying here gives you a genuine sense of the local life and vibe of Puerto Viejo. I would highly recommend this place. Thank you Martin and all of the volunteers for a beautiful experience.

    Nice place with interesting projects, l experienced a different way of living, more close to the nature. They have a comunity kitchen with nice and cheap vegan food, and probiotics fermentations. I got a chance to saw them working on cacao production and chocolate making, so you can have strange smells or flies around the kitchen. It a little jungle in the city, like indigenous house with open spaces and roof top micro houses. The staff is cool and helpfull if you need anything don't be afraid to ask. You can see some animals as well like a frog came in my room at night so don't leave some food on a floor, and you can see lezards and insects around. They dont use any chemicals at all.

    This was seriously the best hostel i‘ve ever stayed in! It is an eco project, which is nothing but truth!! Thanks to those very special human beings you will meet there it shows you the road back to yourself, away from luxury directly into pure nature, „Pura Vida“ in it’s core! There is everything one could need, wonderful and very special vibes, Yoga possibilities, real chocolate, friendly advice, fresh bananas and loads of lovely handmade things, either to eat or any other need you could have :) like a big family you Share a Short Time of your Life with each other, right in middle of nature, but still in the center of Puerto Viejo. The Kolibris, Geckos, the very unique self- built (!!!) structure, which actually is a piece of architectural art, the unbelievably various nature that surrounds you drags you into a new form of happiness. Even if there had been really evil people, that stole from the project, those lovely people never gave up hope and live true positivity and love will improve your life for sure! I will be back very soon, I love you all, it was an honor I could meet you sweethearts!!! PURA VIDA! Much love, Lou

    Lieu miteux, n'y mettez pas les pieds

    Etablissement sale, matelas dépassés depuis 15 ans, avec odeur tenace nauséabonde, sanitaires sales, peu pratiques et qui fonctionnent mal, cuisine dans un état lamentable, quasiement aucun sièges ni table pour manger ou se poser dans l'établissement, moustiquaires trouées et tachées à l'excès, personnel peu accueillant (mise à part une sympathique volontaire), chambre sans aération et avant nos insistantes demandes sans ventilateur, ...
