“Great, convenient stay while in Puerto Viejo”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We stayed here for two nights while in Puerto Viejo. Our accommodation was clean, comfortable and had a lovely hammock out the front. Our bathroom was super clean and our room was brightly painted in big, bold colours. Location is great - super close and within walking distance to restaurants, the beach, and town. We had problems with our key and lock but this was quickly resolved and we were offered to either change rooms or get a new lock on the door first thing in the morning. There is a functional, communal kitchen if that is your thing with coffee if you want to make a pot. All in all, a great stay and lovely, helpful staff. If there are two of you travelling together, definitely opt for staying somewhere like here rather than some of the other hostels in the area as it is cleaner, nicer and better value than lots of the other accomm in the area for travellers.

Best to stay away, cabinas are average in price, but in a good location close to eateries, beach.
Stayed one month, best service was from the two ladies working there. Reported some lost stuff from accommodations, never got a satisfactory response.

We stayed 5 nights there. We liked Puerto Viejo and this Cabinas. The are big and cleane,hot water, hammocks, cable TV, wifi. With small shared kitchen, but is enougt.
When you would like have some private space the Cabinas are the best choise in the town.

You can't beat $10 per person for a clean private room with private bathroom, (noisy) ceiling fan, shared kitchen, hammocks, cable TV and fast wifi! They also clean the rooms daily and will change the towels if you ask. Right in the center of town, next to Bread and Chocolate. There's a gate that they close at night, so you feel safe leaving towels to hang dry. We had some noisy neighbors the second night, but I was pretty tired after biking to Manzanillo for the second day in a row so it didn't bother me. The beds were very comfy.

I think we got a better price booking with our friend Anita at Caribbean Tours Puerto Viejo, which is about 100mts north of the bus stop. It was also low season.

We stumbled across this place after visiting at least ten dirty grimy hostels around the area.
Was the cleanest and most modern we found, for the price of $26 a night with private bathroom it was a bargain considering the competition.
Good wifi, hot water and friendly owners made for a great stay.

We only really wanted these cabinas as a base to come back to at night from all our tours and it served our purpose brilliantly.

The Jamaican/costa rican family who run this place are both friendly and professional and will make you feel safe and at home.

Safe with a gate at night, good wifi reception, not too far from the beach, parking at a safe spot, laundry service and clean environment.

We stumbled across larrys as the hostel we were planning to go to was fully booked. It's in a little compound, each room has its own table and chairs and hammock outside. The rooms are good with a shower and toilet. Towels are also provided.
There is a basic kitchen and fridge to store food.
Location is brilliant - a minute walk to the Main Street and about 4 mins walk to the beach. The beach at punta uva was much more picturesque however, and you can rent bikes in town for around $5 a day to cycle there - the bike road there is really nice and scenic.
The price is also great, $26 for a room for two people - this is the price of most dorm rooms in town so really is good value.
