This is a great spot to spend the night in an outstanding location. It only takes a few minutes to reach the Chirripo trailhead or (even better) the Cloudbridge Nature Reserve from the front door. The owner, who is at the front desk most of the time, speaks english-spanish and is a tico! I love supporting a local instead of yet another American (or German) hotel owner.
Please remember that it is a hostel, not a luxury hotel. The rooms are sparsely decorated but the beds are good and the blankets are clean and fluffy. The price is affordable and Close by are the thermal pools which are fun too. The owner can arrange a ride for you if you need it. I did not have any problem with noise but the owner very sweetly made sure we were in a quiet room since we were traveling with kids. Just ask, he goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. There is a nice variety of people staying here and some great conversations.
