Can anyone recommend me a nice, cheap, clean, party hostel in Cahuita and Puerto Viejo? I would like to meet travelers and party 24/7?

What are people saying about us?

Hostel Bro

You might want to pick which 2 of 3 of those requirements are most important to you! You can get cheap and clean but not party (many of the smaller places e.g. Ruka or Kalunai) or clean and party but not cheap (e.g. Selina) or cheap and party but maybe not so clean (e.g. Rocking Js)
