The hostel is located in a great spot. It's right next to the bus stop, so it's easy to get around and it is only a five minute bus ride to the beach and Manuel Antonio National park (both of which are within walking distance).

Our swimming pool has a beautiful ocean view. There are plenty of pool chairs to lounge in, hammocks, and terrific views of the ocean and surrounding rainforest. And, best of all, it´s open 24 hours a day. Read more

About Backpackers Manuel Antonio

Come and enjoy Backpackers Manuel Antonio, now with new restaurant, located right in the middle of Manuel Antonio (across the street from Manuel Antonio soccer field). The supermarket and liquor store are only 100 meters down the road and there is a bank/ATM, pizzeria, cafes, fine dining as well as moderately priced restaurants, and some great bars, all within walking distance! We are set back from the road creating a very safe and laid back atmosphere, so come to relax and enjoy the open-air patio looking out on to the forest.
