The Experience

We are a husband and wife who opened this hostel 3 years ago in Puerto Viejo, a lovely and chill Caribbean town in Costa Rica. This hostel is our home and we care deeply about it. We're looking for the right people who will be responsible and carrying to help us with the hostel with daily tasks. The hostel itself is small with a few rooms and a small camping area which makes this place very easy to manage and to get to know the other guests.

I loved my time at Oasis. The hostel is owned by a couple with their little baby girl. The hostel is their home and I loved that about it. I enjoyed sleeping in the nature and hearing the sea as I slept. I enjoyed meeting people and exploring the town and surrounding areas. A lot of love goes into this place. Be prepared to live a little rough (which I love) and enjoy the outdoor shower after the beach. Thanks for the good times, Pura Vida!

The Oasis hostel is a wonderful place with an amazing vibes, ideal to stay calm and relax in front of the beach and see animals all around the hostel. It was a very good experience, Tom and Hadas are amazing hosts, they treat you like a family even let you interact with their baby daughter Hili, she's a beautiful and happy baby girl, She's too lovely... I feel really happy and grateful to have been there and I highly recommend this experience 100%... Thanks Tom and Hadas for the opportunity, see you soon again... Blessings!!!

El Hostel es hermoso, un lugar bellísimo con mucho verde y el mar a muy pocos metros, además está muy bien ubicado ya que no está en el centro pero tampoco demasiado alejado y se puede caminar perfectamente. Tom, su mujer y su hija son muy buenas personas. Pienso que se les da mucha responsabilidad a los voluntarios (manejo de reservas y manejo de dinero) cuando en realidad deberíamos estar para ayudar al personal o al dueño.
