I arrive to the airport, I see a sign for Backpackers hostel, approach the man and he says he can take me. Than 5 minutes later he says because I did not make a reservation I must take a cab to the hostel (even though he is going there).
Enter the hostel. I booked a $12 a night room through hostel world and paid $6 online. Alajuela Backpackers says the $6 I paid has nothing to do with them and I still have to pay $14 because they put us in a private room. Great but we did not ask for the private room since we are on a budget. It is not my fault that there are to many people in the room, leaving my reservation unsatisfied and my friend and I being charged more money. The food, extremely average and expensive. The vibe, extremely low. The customer service, even lower. We also did not have AC as promised.
All around bad energy, bad vibe, bad prices, bad service.
