I had such a great stay at Cuesta Arriba. SO good, that months later I am still thinking about it and day dreaming of being back there. I intended on staying only 2 nights then moving on, but ended up staying 7 nights.
I stayed in the big, open room dormitory upstairs. It was by far one of the best rooms I have ever had in a hostel setting. I loved waking up to the sounds of the jungle and the morning breeze.
They had well kept amenities, it was always clean, and there was a wonderful feel and atmosphere to the place. As a solo female traveller, I always felt safe and comforted by my surroundings.
I enjoyed that it felt peaceful and slightly tucked away from it all, and yet was literally a minute walk to the spectacular beach and all the happenings. It was also 3 minutes walking distance from a supermarket and one of the best local restaurants.
They have a beautiful pool for lounging in the mid-day heat and a great open aired kitchen/main hangout area. It was an easy, chill place to meet and chat with others. And, there was freshly brewed coffee each morning in the outdoor kitchen, such a treat to wake up to.
The hosts, Barbara & Martin, are such cool couple. They were warm and welcoming, very knowledgeable and professional at all times. They made me feel well taken care of, like I was staying with old friends, but I also appreciated that I was left alone and unbothered, as I tend to enjoy my personal space and time. It was a great balance.
Overall, an excellent experience and I look forward to future stays!
Many thanks to Barbara & Martin
