Description de l’établissement

Pura Vida Hostel - Manuel Antonio. Dormitory and private rooms, hot showers, excellent location and amazing staff - you will feel right at home!

If you come from San Jose, you have to take a bus in Tracopa bus Terminal it is close to Plaza Viquez Av,18 , street 5; you can buy a ticket for a direct bus that cost around $10 USD and it takes about 3 hours to Quepos. After, take a bus to Manuel Antonio (every 20 min), ask to the bus driver to leave you in front of Pura Vida Hostel, it takes around 7 minutes from the bus Station, or you can walk, it takes 15 minutes but the hill is tough.
We have fully stacked and always CLEAN communal kitchen with microwave, 2 fridges, plenty of work space, some spices are included, and 2 stoves to cook on...

Breakfast Included: pancakes, coffee and tea.

We have private rooms and dormitories depending on your budget: Private rooms with private or shared bathrooms with hot water showers. Some rooms have safes and lockers. Dorm Rooms: We have 3 types to fit your budget – you can choose a dorm room for 6 people or 8 people with shared or private bathrooms. Rooms are cleaned daily, the bathrooms twice daily and we are very particular and meticulous about the cleanliness of our hostel, the common areas and the rooms.

We have an excellent location in the pure jungle right outside of Quepos. We have Titi Monkeys that are regular visitors to us. Right around the hostel you can spot many incredible animals: Toucans, close-to-extinction Titi Monkeys, White Face Monkeys, Sloth, Iguanas, humming birds...

We are walking distance to Quepos where everything is MUCH CHEAPER – because you are getting local prices with many restaurants, shops, grocery stores, bars, night life, Fresh Farmers market (Friday and Saturday), a marina, local public beach /BBQ area on a beautiful point.

We have a bus stop right in front of the hostel for 340 colones, it will take you to Manuel Antonio National Park and Manuel Antonio beach, in few minutes. Bus every 20 minutes.

We have excellent, happy and always smiling, bi-lingual staff that have an incredible wealth of knowledge of the local area, tours, shuttles, and of Costa Rica. We can help you arrange all your activities, your next hostel stays, recommend off the beaten track attractions (like the Secret Waterfall – from which you can jump - and The Secret Beach)

    Chantale est à l'écoute des clients et sait nous faire sentir comme à la maison. A la minute où on est arrivé, on s'est senti comme chez soi. Elle a été de très bons conseils. Ne manquez pas l'occasion de vous y rendre. A Quepos, très près de manuel antonio, distance plus que raisonnable de uvita et dominical. Parfait pour nous.

    Excellent Hostel. Situé près du centre ville de Quepos (Bus terminal) et près du parc national Manuel Antonio. Excellente hôte en Chantal. Elle nous as beaucoup aidé avec notre itinéraire. Meilleur Hostel de la région. Merci beaucoup pour l'hospitalité. :) Je le recommande fortement.

    Le personnel est super gentil et très relax ! Nous avions tout ce dont il nous fallait pour cuisiner et un arrêt d'autobua était situé juste devant l'hostel. Très belle ambiance !

    Staff is nice, hostel close to manuel antonio park by bus, but is not in the city center of quepos. However, everything is accessible within a close walking distance (quepos city center is a 5 min walk). Staff is amazing, really helpful... really smooth vibe! Lockers are not in the bedrooms they are downstairs, not optimal but for the rest this hostel is really great so go there!

    Chantale a été une hôte formidable! Très aimante, à l'écoute de nos commentaires et prête à nous aider. Elle nous a indiqué les autobus à prendre, les activités à faire et à réservé un tour de bateau pour voir les baleines pour nous! (Un must) l'hostel est bien situé et le rapport qualité prix est excellent! Cuisine efficace et bonne pancakes le matin! Beaucoup de plaisir avec Chantale!

    Very nice hostel, the ambiance was great but the kitchen could be improved a bit, the stoces were in bad shape and it was not very clean. But in overall it’s a nice place to stay and not so expensive!

    L’esprit costa ricaine n’est pas présente. Propriétaires québecois peu acceuillant. Seule possibilité de profiter de la chaleur extérieur est le minuscule balcon où tous les fumeurs sont présents. Absence de restrictions concernant le bruit, donc si vous avez des « party animal » présent dans l’hostel en même temps que vous, je vous souhaite bonne chance pour dormir. Attention dans la douche, nous avons eu des petits choc électrique (pommeau de douche électrique).

    Propriétaire super aidante, mais malheureusement hostel super mal situé pour aller à la plage. Très loins de Manuel Antonio ( environs 30min de bus) et le denier bus passe à 9:45 le soir, donc pas de possibilité de retour à l’auberge en bus après être allé faire le party. L’auberge est propre, mais il n’y a pas de casier pour mettre nos objets importants. Globalement: bonne auberge, mais juste très mal situé si vous enviez envie de faire de la plage.
