Lonely Planet review

In an area that is hopelessly overpriced, it’s a relief to find such a great budget hostel. Perched scenically on a quiet hillside, this memorable spot allows guests to enjoy spectacular ocean sunsets from a hammock-filled terrace and strum the communal guitar. A short trail hike through local farmland leads to a remote wilderness beach. The spick-and-span white-tiled dorms have shared bathrooms, a communal kitchen and a TV lounge, though there are private bungalows for couples that want a bit more privacy. Sonia and her son Conrad, the helpful Tico owners, speak fluent English, and are commendable for their efforts in assisting countless travelers.

Our independent authors have visited Hostel Vista Serena and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Quepos To Manuel Antonio.

Description provided by property

Hostel Vista Serena is the first hostel in Manuel Antonio designed for young people. We are recommended by the Lonely Planet guide and the Hostelling International. Set on a mountain, surrounded by jungle, with awesome views of the Pacific Ocean, the hostel is the perfect place to experience the peace of paradise and the thrill of local attractions.

Our hostel is specially designed for foreign visitors. You get the rainforest and Costa Rica's most beautiful beach, and still have all of the comforts of home.

We run a small, secluded hostel, and offer personalized services to our guests. Our goal is to cater to the individual - with a little Costa Rican touch!
