I have stayed at the hostel for a long time and it was the best. location of the hostel is perfect,close to the beach and close to the centre of samara. I have met some awesome people there and the staff are super friendly. Also they organized cheap day trips that were very nice. I really made some good friends there. I would certainly recommend the hostel to everyone I know.

It is a very good hotel with a lot of other travellers to meet. The dorm is clean and confortable with a lot of hammocks. It is only five minutes walk from the beach. The laundry service is good and cheap. The staff can be a bit disorganized.

We stayed there only for one night, but its a very nice and good place to stay longer!
The staff (Eefje and Amanda) helped us friendly and gave us good advise!
The hostel has warm water and separate rooms, its clean and the atmosphere is relaxed and easy going!
There are enough hammocks to chill in and the beach is just around the corner!
What you see is what you get, and thats a fair price for a honest hostel!

I Stayed at las mariposas for a few nights. The staff were really helpful, kitchen and bathrooms were always clean. The atmosphere was great. Plenty to do and only a minute walk from the beach. Would love to go back!

We'd have been better off sleeping outside than staying at Mariposa's for the night. Just a few of the terrible things from our stay here:

- The bed flattened as we slept on it, so it was like sleeping on the floor midway through the night.
- They decided to start running a lawn mower at 8 in the morning on a Sunday.
- Our room had ants crawling everywhere.
- No sink in the bathroom or hot water.

Many of these things are to be expected in most places in Costa Rica, but for the price we paid per night we've had infinitely better experiences.

Room Tip: Do not take the room on the ground level around from the reception.
