“A peaceful place to stay”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

I stayed in this hostel, the one that is located under the restaurant. It is a great hostel for relaxing, my buddy and I personally cleaned up the backyard space, and added a fireplace. It is very safe, you can feel a great energy coming from the people that stay there. Veronica and Delroy, the owners just passed off this hostel to their son, and he is doing a great job running the place. If looking to be right in town, and in great surroundings, come here!

Room Tip: When i left, they were building the second dorm room. I helped put up the wall. Looks like a great r...

The hostel is under the restaurant in town where the kitchen is tiny and private room has walls that dont reach close to the ceiling. Pretty noisy and cramped.

The b&b is much nicer, on the outskirts of town in a quiet street. The cabanas are probably nice but our room inside the house was pretty average. The family, although lovely are very loud. The bed was not comfortable at all. The kitchen had only a single birner stove and minimally equipped.

$20 a night for this area is cheap though.

I feel a bit bad for this because the people who run it are lovely, but the accommodation really needs some work. Its cramped and quite uncomfortable - we would have been a lot happier with it if the price was lower, but the double room is not worth $25 at all, there are better options around for that price. It looked like the mosquito net over the bed didn't quite fit, perhaps it was designed for a single, so it was difficult to avoid getting bitten. The walls were very thin with a vent at the top so we kept getting woken by someone's alarm in the house next door (which didn't seem to wake them!) Generally didn't have enough space or privacy, and nothing was provided beyond the very basic. I get the impression they concentrate more on the restaurant, which is apparently very good.

I stayed at Veronica's Place, i had a private room inside the house which was simple but clean and they made me feel like a family member. I also stayed another week in a cabina with my boyfriend. The cabinas are really big and cute with a nice garden. They also have a kitchen and a privat bathroom. I had a good time, everyone was very nice. You can have breakfast with Veronica's Family which is AMAZING.

We stayed at Veronica's for the night in a private room with a private bathroom for $13 a night, so right there you have a great deal. It's still in town, just not in the center so it's not loud at night. There were nets above the beds (not sure if we actually needed them, but we felt better with them) and the fan worked so well we actually turned it off for a while because we were cold. We had breakfast with her family the next morning, we aren't vegetarian but the food was great and they are all such nice, friendly people.
We went to an $8 hostel the next night (now) and are currently hating our lives with the amount of bugs and stuffy room. Heading back to Veronica's in the morning and just going to cut the $8 loss.

We haven't eaten at the restaurant yet, but have only heard great things and the breakfast was delicious at her houses so I imagine it has to be in her restaurant too!

I had a really great week staying at Veronica's place! I rented a separate cabin that was really cosy and clean. Veronica and her family made fantastic vegetarian breakfast every morning! One of the absolute best things was the positive vibe of the family! They really shared their way of living and even took me along to some events in the community! A real gem in Puerto Viejo!

we travelled from cahuita on 2 occasions just to eat out at veronicas place. the ambiance and the food ist just amazing. the selection of foods is sensational, the options will leave even non vegan coming back for more. everything is super fresh and tasty. the juices are exceptional, loved the veggieburger. good value for your money, the service is more than friendly. everything at Veronicas place is made with a lot of love. if you're in Puerto Viejo, make sure you stop at Veronica's place...you won't regret it.
