Chill place. Even though is is a bit more expensive than most other places, it is worth it. Even, if you stay a week it is 10% off. Central, close enough to the beach and not too young ppl (25+). My space the next time too!

Wave Trotter is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The light space open plan layout makes it seem like more of a guest house, with the big high ceiling bedrooms roomy and airy, they could easily fit another bed in but they don't so that you have more space to relax. All the rooms have fans in to help keep you cool. To say the place is clean is an understatement, hot water showers (which for $12 in Costa Rica is not that common!) seperate female and male bathrooms which are done to such a high standard. The open plan living with the family also using the kitchen make it feel more like a guest house or a home then your run of the mill hostel, with tunes playing during the day (except in siasta time) and a laid back vibe. You can happily sit in a hammock or relax in the garden, for surfers and non surfers alike, if you surf there is space for your board, and loads of local knowledge like the best waves for the tides and times of day. They will even pick you up on a quad bike should you miss the turning!

Room Tip: most stunning place I've stayed

This Hostel is owned by an Italian and you can tell: the hostel is very welcoming, has a great layout and design. Everything is very open and spacious, while the hostel has only five rooms sleeping six. All rooms are on the first floor above the common hostel area + kitchen - if you walk out of the room you can look down to that area. To the other side all rooms have an exit to one big common balcony facing the nice garden - where you can sometimes watch monkeys crawling in the trees.
As the owner lives in a private area in the same house and uses the common kitchen for himself privately everything is so clean and well kept.
Besides the very good hostel condition the atmosphere is also great. Surfers, but also Non-Surfers chill and hang out, listen to good music and just enjoy themselves.
The only downside of this place are the beds: mattresses are cheap and should be replaced as the are getting close to hammock shape (bud hanging down) which can be a bit uncomfortable.
Enjoy!
