"The time in the Eco Travel Hostel was an extremely special time in my life. Not only could I grow and learn a lot personally, I really felt that the work was meaningful and needed. Beate, Federico, and the rest of the staff make you feel like home and welcome you with open hearts. I did not want to go home and for sure will come back sooner or later."



from Germany

“Eco Travel Hostel is wonderful. The house, of course, but also Beate and Federico and all the wonderful people I met here. Staying here never gets old and it really taught me about being conscious about my impact. Learning to use less water, watch my waste, use less plastic, and composting food. It’s not just a hostel, it’s a lifestyle.”

Puerto Viejo is breathtaking! It is beautiful, it is welcoming! From the time I arrived right up to my leaving day, Puerto Viejo put a smile on my face everyday ☺ I got my first taste of the culture when I went to the mini market buying locally sourced food including vegetables as well as handmade gifts! Living at the Eco Travel Hostel gave me many opportunities to meet people from around the world, take part in dance and yoga sessions, learn Spanish and also how to surf! My time in Puerto Viejo truly allowed me to explore, experience and indulge in the local life so much so, that I didn’t want to leave!
