Definitely going back!
Staff was so warm, inviting and friendly. It felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Only a block away from the beach and they gave us beach towels and let us use the wooden wakeboard free of charge. My favorite part was how amazing the food and drink was. The Argentinean couple who work in the bar and kitchen were AMAZING. Best drinks in CR for sure.
