Beachfront Hostel in Playa Puerto Viejo

Hostel Playa 506 Dorms and Private Rooms

Welcome to our unique style beachfront hostel in the south Caribbean coast of  Costa Rica.

Come to experience high level of comfort in one of our unique creative rooms designs. All in a very relaxing, cool beach hostel vibe. Many open common areas, a big community kitchen and a co-working space are available for all guests.

Beachfront Shared Dorms

We offer different dorm sizes to accommodate 3,4,5,6 and 8 people.

A variety of bed types: bunk beds, twins, doubles and capsules. For more privacy, each bed has curtains and an assigned personal locker (locks not provided). Reading light and power outlet by each bed. Some with fan and others with air conditioning. Shared bathrooms are located outside of the room.

Beachfront Private Rooms

Playa 506 created many options of private rooms: from a basic double bed for couples, a 3 story bunkbed for friends, or double bed and bunkbed for families of 4. Some with private bathroom and others with shared bathrooms. All private rooms have air conditioning.

Perfect for friends, family or couples who wants more privacy. Plus these are friendly for the most important member of the family, our pets.

We like to party sometimes but we respect all guests by maintaining quiet hours between 11:00 pm and 6:00 am. If you wanna keep it going, please take it to beach area.

This is a Smoke-free hostel! By law 9028 in Costa Rica, it’s forbidden to smoke inside hotels and restaurants. You can go outside the main gate or to the beach to smoke.

A refundable $20 security deposit will be collected in cash at the time of check-in. It covers an unforeseen event, like loosing the key or checking out late.
