Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

6 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)

Breakfast included
Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.

Each room in the hostel is extremely clean, spacious, comfortable. The dormitory-style rooms have hardwood flooring and the others have polished tile.

There are two tranquil sitting areas on the main floor if you need to relax. There is a television, a selection of magazines, comfortable couches, and a diverse book exchange available. Like the rest of the hostel, this area is also beautifully decorated with the charismatic owner’s artwork (mozaics, sculptures, paintings).

The hostel also provides its guests with access to two immaculate kitchen areas where they can store food, cook, and enjoy their meals. One is on the upper floor of the hostel where you can choose to eat at the kitchen table or out on the balcony which boasts a beautiful view of the town. The other kitchen is located on the main floor in the back courtyard. There are various tables to eat at, which are surrounded by lush gardens, pottery, and mozaic artwork.

During your stay at the hostel, the owner, Ramon, will go out of his way to assist you with organizing whatever you wish to do. In addition to helping you with your specific travel goals, he organizes and provides full day kayak tours in the surrounding area and a full day tour to Poas Volcano, the coffee plantations, and Waterfall Garden La Paz.
