“not recommended”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2012

we stayed at this hotel for one night. first, the onliest good thing about the place: the hotel is close to the bus terminal of guapiles and its cheap.
but everything else was just terrible. the walls are extremely thin, we did not just hear the guest next door talking, but also had to listen to the sound of tv from the next hallways. the mattress of our bed was so thin, we felt like lying on the planks. but the most terrible thing were the sheets! undoing it we discovered lots of hair, oily stains and pieces of foam. we went to the reception to chame it for a clean one. when tehy bought it to our room a few minutes later, it was just as smelly and dirty as the one before.
as a backpacker i am used to simple accommodations, but even for the cheapest place it should be possilbe to maintain a minimum of hygiene!! 1 block up the street you'll sure find something better for the same price!

I'd heard this place was nothing special, but adequate. That was several years ago. I would add that it is still adequate, if barely. Be sure to check any part of the room that needs to function: air conditioning, electric shower head, tv, toilet, etc. If you are fortunate, at least some of them will work. And bring earplugs. On the other hand, it IS cheap ($20 for a room with private bath, tv, and a/c). And it IS right in town, if that's important. I transferred to a lovely place just outside of town on my second night in the area for only $10 more (see my review of Hotel Talamanca).

Room Tip: Away from the street.
