    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.

    Lunch was served early at home-base on Friday to accommodate all the volunteers leaving for the weekend. Our charter van arrived at 1:30 and we piled in for what was supposed to be a 4 hour trip. The weekend of Columbus day is a very busy holiday in Central America however and half the population of Costa Rica was on their way to the Carribbean! …

    ... process which takes over a month to achieve. The actual operations of the coffee plantation were far from fancy. I couldn't believe only 6 people worked there and produced a very patiently crafted award winning product which saw them export over 10,0000 kgs a year to country's all over the world. He showed us how they roast the beans light medium and dark roast all in machinery that the owner had built using recycled parts off old cars and other trash. The six carefully ...

    ... last night. Another girl from Austria, Chris, arrived in the afternoon too. It's so sad that all of the girls are going! It's lovely meeting all the new people and theypeople seem really nice. Still it's sad when people go when you get used to spending all your time with them. I managed to get some time with Piphany after work. She was being so funny, she kept trying to climb on me and apparently really wanted my top because ...

    Again we woke up at 5 am and walked to Santa Elena (3km). Firstly we had to take a bus to the capital city San Jose which took us 4 hours and then the next 4 hours bus forward to the beach.

    ... my own. I also missed baby time today to sort the left over leaves; barros leaves vs baby time... Come on! Not to mention at least 5 of the 23 sloths in my section are actually pretty ill and I'm personally administering medicine to two in my section and one sloth in her section. I have been the one to find all of these problems, not the vet, me. So sorry I actually spend a little bit of time looking over my sloths or spending two minutes more with ...
