          We have a reservation there for the 27th of January. We heard there is a bridge being built and taxis are around $60.00US. What is the best way to get to the hostel?

          Stay in Alajuela, near the airport. The hotels are much nicer. Hostel Casa Colon is a great place right in the middle of the city, but probably not what you are looking for.
