As said in the title it is good value for the price, right in the city center, free shuttle. Well it is not very clean and the doors are not very safe, but as most of the visitors we took this hotel only for one night to depart early in the morning. The free shuttle was included. However, I would not take this hotel for usual stay - it is simply not its purpose. By the way, Alajuela is really beautiful and safe city, not like San José. I wish I had known it.

- loud!
- smoke area near the rooms

We stayed here last night before an early flight out of San Jose. Check-in was smooth and the airport transfer at 4am was perfectly arranged.

The 2 reasons I'm giving only 2stars:
-the private room didn't have windows and wasn't very clean. I thought it was a bad deal for USD 33 that we paid.
-but the biggest problem was a large family of cockroaches that was hanging around my luggage when I woke up at 3.45. Not a relaxed way to start your day.. :(

I Spent 2 nights here: basic and clean dorm for a good price. Breakfast was nice ( fruit, bread, coffee, and cereal) and personnel is friendly. Good pick for a airport shuttle early morning since its free. The toilet and bathroom are shared though.

I stayed here for one night in a dorm room for six, before flying home from SJO. The bed was comfortable and the room was big, they had a sofa area with a large selection of books to read and an outside seating area. The guy managing the hostel was a very genuinely nice man. In the morning we were given some Costa Rican type cinnamon pancakes alongside banana and coffee.

I only stayed here one night when I arrived in San Jose. It was a quick 5 min drive from airport. The hostel was safe and in a good location. The manager was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean an basic.
