No regrets
I have stayed at the Costa Rica Backpackers Hostel a few times and have not been disappointed in the service, price and quality of the hostel. The staff were always there to assist me in all that I required. The pool and common area are always filled with a positive vibe and add to the ambience and favour of the accommodations. I would recommend it to my friends.

Great staff
I had a great time at the Backpacker's! Very clean facilities and very friendly staff! Mathildé at the bar and Shalton at the front desk were very welcoming and helped make my stay in Costa Rica memorable.

Very Good 8.0
Short Visits Only
This is an okay place to stay for a couple nights max. They can provide you with most things you would need such as food, drinks, and tours. Be aware of the exchange rate as it’s not that good. Exchange money beforehand. Also, I had rented a car and they provide free parking but during my stay they said it wasn’t going to be free anymore when there are signs and even the hotels.com listing states free parking.
