"Life Supports Life in Joy"

At Life for Life Hostel our intention is to support you in the rest, fun and deep relaxation that we believe human beings need in order to connect deeply with themselves and nature, and to live in community with the plants and animals that we co-live with here on Earth. Our space, in this extraordinary environment, is in an uncommon and remarkable location created with the intention to support you in exploring your own self and the Osa Peninsula in all of its glory. 


If you are single, a couple, family or group looking to adventure and play in the abundance of life, and/or on the lookout for a budget-friendly, self-created yoga or meditation retreat - this is a special energy and environment to do just that. We look forward to meeting you and living this beautiful life in your company while you are here!
