40$ for a bedroom with air conditioning as noisy as the trucks passing by or the dogs screaming at anytime of the night. Don't try to sleep! The beds are not comfortable either... Otherwise the concept is nice, good people, hammock, piano, a kitchen you can use (the super market is really close). But when foreigners come in a cheap...

The location is great for bus riders and anyone who wants to be close proximity to groceries, banks, restaurants, etc. Don't let that deter you if that's not what you want though, there's not much to Uvita (and I like it that way). Owners and staff are welcoming and helpful, the overall vibe of the place is open. We stayed...

We accidentally came across the Tucan hotel when we had a stopover in Uvita, and came to understand that it is a place one of its kind. When being in Costa Rica you are constantly confronted with the motto “Pura Vida”, but it was not until here that my girlfriend and I really experienced it. This is due to the...

It is a "hippie style" hotel. Ok for a quick stay, but don't expect much. Beds are old. Not that clean. We did like the place to cook, great idea. Very good location: near the Marino Ballena National Park, restaurant and grocery.

This place is really great! Family run hotel with really cosy hang out area, great vibe, excellent food and fantastic service as well. The Tucan Hotel is the overall best place I have stayed in years. Awesome value also as the prices are low.

Close to a very nice waterfall and with a free shuttle to the beach this is a great place to stay! Staff is very friendly, atmosphere is totally relaxed, internet is fast and free coffee all day. Nice hammocks! We slept in them for a night and had a great night of sleep :)

This is a fantastic hostel! Elizabeth the owner is so welcoming, lovely and helpful. She also serves tasty and affordable Italian food at the on site restaurant. The rooms are comfortable with AC and we had a private bathroom. (We were actually upgraded to a room with private bathroom for no extra charge). There are lots of different places to...

Tray the owner is from Tennessee. He is a retired air traffic controller and decided to open a hotel/hostel in Costa Rica. This is it, the Hotel Tucan. The rooms were clean and the amenities offered a shared kitchen area with refrigerator, plenty of outdoor hammocks under a common covered courtyard, an eating area where you can order a good...
