We are two german families with kids running this hostel - we like to work as well organized as possible (but also like the pura vida style of Costa Rica).
It's no party hostel at all and we are not very close to the beach (3-4 km away).
Unfortunately we ca not accept any guests of you who don't stay at our hostel.
