Reviewed 7 April 2013

I stayed there with a friend for a couple of nights..We had arrived very tired from a long day of traveling, and as soon as we saw Marco, he made us feel like we had arrived home. His energy is contagious and you know right away he's in a happy place there. He gave us the most exciting visit of the place, made sure to explain everything, rules and all..This is what contributes to a well- runned hostel.
Besides the great team running the place, you can't go wrong with the cleanliness of the entire hostel. When you travel a lot, you know how precious it is to know you can have a great shower.Hot water AND great pressure is a rarity.
This place is a little hidden gem, very minimalist in the design and modern. We stayed in the dorm upstairs, yet it felt we had our own corner of the floor. Its well designed with wall separations to make it feel more private than a dorm is.
All in all, this is a perfect hostel , great passionate team, absolutely spotless and very inviting setting.

Just got back from Guiones and had a great time. My last 2 nights were at 4 you hostal. I really liked Marco and Carole. What a great team! They have the energy and personality needed to make a hostel run properly. Plus they are obsessive about cleanliness which is perfect for a hostel setting. The guests also made me feel welcome even when I was old enough to be their parent or even grandparent.


The bikes are priceless for running errands or checking the surf. The double kitchen was fit for Top Chef. Everything is so organized and clean and new that I was really impressed. THANKS SO MUCH!

Really just so nice easthetically, so accomodating, so clean, firm beds, safe safe safe, amazing owners, awesome hangout space(s), super clean bathrooms and kitchen, and the kitchen is top notch. Best, best Kitchen (but no freezer) I´ve cooked in throughout almost 3 months traveling around Costa Rica.

It´s also environmentally concious which is a beautiful side quality to it´s overall Zen vibration.

The hang out areas are top quality - and I mean top quality - seat hammocks, big flat couch with lots of pillows, shade screans for the couch seating & eating area, a space surrounded by a garden to do yoga or meditation.....top quality....especially for a hostel scene.

I just would truly reccomend 4 You to ANYONE - even families with youngsters.

I agree with all the other positive reviews- Swiss style, new construction, comfortable, hot water, good toilets, and friendly owners. I spent over two weeks in the the dorm and spent my days doing yoga and surfing. Beach is a 10 min walk on dirt road and there are restaurants, surf shop, and a mini-convenient store on the way. There is a secure room to leave your surfboard. The kitchen is large and clean with dry storage bins for each guest and a refrigerator (no freezer)- just remember to dry your dishes and put them away.
The few cons: there are only 4 personal safes and are on a first-come basis. No clothes washer, but there is a wash area with deep sinks and drying lines.

Room Tip: If you are a snorer or sleep talker be respectful to others and maybe not stay in the dorms. To othe...

An absolutely welcoming and nice hostel! Great location and great owners Carola and Marco - friendly and caring! The hostel itself is very clean, open spaced and bright! The kitchen is FULLY STOCKED with any and every utensil, kitchen appliance and plate you could ever need. Clean bathroom with multiple toilets and hot water showers. The atmosphere was great, if you want to socialize or chill out - both options were available to you! Absolutely loved it!
