We just stayed one night after arriving at San Jose on the bus from Mal Pais and before our flight out our San Jose the next morning.
Steven and his girlfriend were amazing hosts, very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport by taxi which was about 3,500 colones.
We had the rustic room which was comfortable with a private bathroom although there's no door to separate it from the bedroom so it may not be so good if you're sharing with someone you don't know that well!
Breakfast was lovely; coffee (lots of it!) fresh fruit and toast with jam. We could have had eggs too.
We arrived too late for dinner but there's a local bar called Natos just around the corner which was nice and very cheap! Steven even made sure we found it ok.
I would definitely recommend it for anyone wanting to stay near the airport and can only think that it was under different management when the bad reviews were written as it sounds nothing like our experience!
