description

Hostal del Instituto de Oceanología is located in Playa Potrero. The hostel belongs to the Instituto de Oceanología de Costa Rica and the profits of the hostel are used for marine conservation, environmental education and community projects such as reforestation, creation of hiking trails, beach clean-up and organization of cultural events. We also recycle all our waste and encourage everyone to share our values of sustainable tourism. As one of our guests wrote it nicely, we offer a “funky, bohemian feel on side street”. A highlight of our property is its intimate ambiance; The hostel is also used to receive groups of students, activists and volunteers who wish to learn about the environmental challenges of Costa Rica and contribute to our conservation activities. The environmental education and volunteering programs are managed separately. Please feel free to ask about our specific services for groups, including presentations about a specific topic, college or high school field trips, workshops or volunteering in the community. We love it when our guests leave a positive footprint in our village. We have 4 rooms that accommodate a maximum of 20 persons only and the apartment is totally independent, so the property is relatively private and cozy. The staff of Institute of Oceanology is present to help you. Languages spoken: English, Spanish, French and German. The owners live in the premises, keeping a gentle eye on everything and making sure the guests have a pleasant experience throughout their stay. The guests enjoy free WiFi, cable TV and a safe parking lot inside the property, subject to availability. Other services are available at an extra fee, such as laundry, beach cruiser rental and snorkeling from our own boat. We are also here to help you reserve taxis, airport transfers or tours. In the our neighborhood you will find grocery stores and various bars and restaurants, no more than 5 minutes walk, ranging from the fanciest cuisine to more casual places such as sport bar, pizzeria, grills and American restaurants. The restaurants around frequently offer live music.
