I spent two night at Oro Verde Hostel. For this price I got everything I needed. A comfortable clean bed in a shared room for 4 persons. All rooms had sufficient fans so at night the heat was no issue which I highly appreciated. The Hostel owner Juan is very friendly and helpful. If you have any issue, he will...

All in all, a nice place to stay. There were 5 people staying in the room I was in, and all of us thought that the location was perfect, rooms were relatively clean and prices were really good. The owner who went by the name of simply 'jan' was absolutely incredible. Took us to feed Crocodiles and Caymans and even...

extremely helpful staff: they made our trip way easier and less complicated. They arranged tickets and a guide for the nationalpark and even lend me some equipment! Of course the rooms are not luxurious, but it´s good for the price you pay. - and it´s clean! definitely recommend it (espec. for backpackers)!

He took us to feed alligators and turtles just because he thought it'd be a nice thing to do! very cheap washing, fast free wifi, good...

The staff was very kind. We arrived in the evening and they organized a guide and entrance tickets, so that we could visit the national park the next day. But if you plan to stay there, try not to get the room called Drake. The room had no wardrobe and it felt like fresh air was also missing. Since the...

Owner picked us up from the harbour and offered free ride to the center. We checked his hostel and was satisfied with what we saw, so we left here for 3 days. Perfect location in the center of town. Owners are very helpful and helped us to arrange everything, starting from laundry and ending with tours and car rent. Small...
