I'd liked to stay in this place far away from rush and infrastructure. The place is nice and you have trails all around. No need to pay the expensive entrance fee for Corcovado because wildlife is very close to this hostel.

This was hands down the coolest way to experience Osa. Val and Ron were super helpful getting us up and settled and were available to answer all our questions. They are obviously doing a lot of work on the place but we still found the accommodations to be excellent, especially for the price! (If you're on the fence, spring for the private cabina - it's really cool having a patio to sip your morning coffee on and it's not secluded from the rest of the setup) There is a fully stocked kitchen, the outside rain showers are the best after a long day hiking and we spent a lot of time in the new hammocks. If Krystle is around, definitely order some food from her - the breakfasts she made us were incredible. The trail getting up to Bolita is a little steep, so be prepared with water. But the rest of the trails on the map are slightly easier and really fun. If you're looking for an authentic jungle experience in Osa, Bolita is your destination.

It was an awesome experience in the jungle! Very organized and clean. Everyone was really friendly including the hosts, volunteers and guests. Saw some cool animals on the trails and also near the hostel. You can easily spend a whole afternoon in the hammocks and spot animals in the tree. Ron came up to hang out, didn't get to meet Val but she was really patient and responsive to my questions online!

What an experience! The place is in the middle of the jungle. After 30 minute walk - steep but not bad - you reach the house that oversees the rainforest and is embedded in the middle of it. There are serveral walks that start right from the house with different views of the area and if you are lucky you get to see animals (we saw snakes, frogs, monkeys, parrots and other beautiful birds). The kitchen is very well equipped and the common area is great to hang out and get to know the other travellers staying at Bolita. I would recommend going to Dos Brazos with a rental car since it`s very remote and buses take quite a time to get there. If you want to experience something unique stay at this place!

Absolutely stunning place to visit for a few days and get away. Trails are not too difficult, the jungle is amazing. The accommodations were great, I would recommend this place for anyone looking to get off the grid for a couple of days

We had a wonderful time at Bolita. I won't lie, we did get lost on our first attempt up the mountain, but storms had forced a fresh new detour along the trail, and the confusing interchange (ribbons on trees mark the route) had been much clarified by the time our stay was over. We originally booked the "private" double dorm (one bed) for one night and a cabina for another but as a large family was coming in, Ron & Val swapped the dorm for the cabina at no extra cost, and in the end it really was much nicer. Very fair and guest-centric, I must say. I would recommend a minimum of two nights, and really only if you can get to the hostel early on the first day. We have no regrets as we simply couldn't get there any earlier, but don't go thinking one night is enough. Spend two days--the first one getting acquainted and enjoying the hammocks, and the second hiking and enjoying the hammocks ;) Or vice-versa... just be sure to plan some downtime. We stayed here instead of paying a bunch of money to visit Corcovado for a few hours, and after seeing a family of spider monkeys, were very happy with the decision. Don't let the prospect of "roughing it" sway you. Bianca's far from a fan of camping, but she found it to be a one-of-a-kind experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. Think of it like camping with a proper kitchen, shower, mattress and table right outside your not-so-stuffy tent.

Great way to experience the jungle of Corcovado. Doesn't get any more tranquil and serene than sleeping out in the open cabanas and waking up to howler monkeys.
