    If you've never stayed in a hostel then this might be a disappointing experience for you. We needed and inexpensive place for 7 people to sleep and stow their things for 48 hours and Kaya's was that and more. The service was excellent in the accommodation area. The food/bar/restaurant left something to be desired. The food was overpriced for the quality, although beer was very cheap! The restaurant didn't open for breakfast either day we were there, apparently the cook just didn't show. We were able to find better food at better prices elsewhere in town. The hammocks on the terrace are wonderful! We checked out early on Sunday and the staff locked up our bags for us, then when we returned from our bike ride to wait for our transportation they let us take showers and clean up before we left. Definitely would stay here again.

    Annoyingly I woke up at 5am and couldn't sleep any longer. We left on a mini van at 7.30am, our of the chaos that is San Jose - and my final visit to this city for this trip! Heading towards the Caribbean coast, to the Southern end of Costa Rica. The roads heading out of the city were fairly quiet and we were soon winding our way up through the …

To wind down in the evening we played Irish Snap with the whole hostel which brought us all together. I'm going to miss this place as we have like a little hostel family; we even had a cute camp fire on the beach. This brought quite a chilled day to the end. Tomorrow we leave to Boca De Toro il let you know how it ...

    ... extend my stay and I heard a guy talking that was going to Puerto Viejo in the 12:00pm bus and he was ready to check out. So I asked him about it and asked if I could join him and he said ok, so I checked out right then and there. Then another joined us who also wanted to go and the three of us shared a taxi to the bus station, got the tickets ($5415c) and boarded the Bus at about 12:30pm.

    The bus trip took about 5 hrs and it was ...

    ... at the sanctuary, at the front of his enclosure. He's hardly ever there and was being really playful. He will bit you hard though. He escaped once and bit the **** out of Rolo. I got to have hugs with Linus again too while Jeff covered up the babies, he's literally the greatest baby! So I just chilled with him for a bit which was lovely. After we were meant to be watching The Skeleton Key, the film i'd bought for Steven. We had literally made tons of popcorn (I attempted popcorn ...

    ... they're not getting the right care. Idiots. I told everyone this and Dani who'd been there said that it didn't seem like a bad place when she went and that it seemed really good and basically got testy about what I said. I was like don't you think Judy would know more than a tourist who's just been on a guided tour? I seriously don't know why people get grumpy with me when I'm just saying what I've heard or been told.

    After work I did another list for Claire/Judy of all ...
