Rio Celeste backpackers was such a great hostel- very comfortable, homey atmosphere which was a great change of pace and provided some much needed r&r. The rooms were great, with comfortable enough beds and Jorge was an excellent host. The hostel is in a beautiful setting as well, I spent several hours just lounging in the hammocks and appreciating the amazing scenery.
We got off the public bus in the middle of town so had a bit of a walk, maybe half mile to the hostel, which is right on the edge of the town. At first I thought we weren't gonna find it but then someone finally gave us good directions.
We stayed for 2 nights in the double room, which was very comfortable. The breakfasts were DELICIOUS, and we really enjoyed making dinner in the spacious kitchen. Jorge also offered a shuttle ride to the park for us as we didn't have our own transportation.
We loved our stay here and I would definitely return. Wish we had a car and more nights here to explore the other sights in the area besides the magnificent rio celeste.
