Perfection! May 04, 2011
This was my first experience of staying in a hostel and what an experience it was, I could have stayed forever!!
Pura Vida is perfectly placed at a mere 10 min walk from the beach if that! On the way to the beach you pass a number of places to eat and drink, there's also a supermarket on the corner which is great for travellers on a budget.
The hostel offers private rooms or dorms and has two clean and well stocked kitchens and eating areas. There is a main lounging area with hammocks, rocking chairs and seats which can pretty much accommodate most people staying
there, which means that you get to socialise with other people staying with you, without it feeling too forced.
The owner Miriam is lovely and will do her best to make you feel at home and is happy to offer you advice and to arrange trips for you and other people at the hostel so that you aren't doing activities alone, they also arrange their own nights of entertainment; 'pirate night' was an interesting affair!'
There is a strict 11pm quiet time policy which means that for those who have early travel plans aren't disturbed, but the party is ready to move on by then anyway.
This is a really nice place to say and I can't type enough good things about it!!
