Best Value in Puerto Viejo? Dec 26, 2011
So, first thing...they don't take reservations which may or may not be a good thing, the plus is that once you have a room it's yours till you leave, the downside is you need to arrive earlier rather than later.
The bed is only rated good, but it's very good, just not some $1500 bed thats all, fun, its a pretty cool place but not a party scene and not much gets organised, however it's well laid out to meet other travelers.
I gave the cost as cheap, but it's acutally about average, only the value you get is so much more.
Good location, free Wifi, hot showers, security gate and overnight security guard. Central to town, 2-3 blocks from the beach.
as of Dec 2011 a dorm is $11 in a 4 bed room, a private is $24 for a shared bathroom or $28 for private bathroom.
Staff are helpful and knowledgable as well as friendly.
It's my first hostel in Costa Rica but I can only hope that the rest are as good, we looked at one other place which cost more and wasn't half as good.
I recomend this place without hesitation and would stay here if I was ever back in town.
