Over a three month trip in Central America this has been the best place we've stayed. So good that when we arrived in mid-December we immediately booked in for Christmas. It has so much that you wouldn't expect from a hostel and a wide range of rooms for different budgets. Its beautiful, with a well-maintained swimming pool, nice art on the walls and chill out music in the common areas, they have really made an effort to make the place comfortable.
It is a little pricier than the budget hostels we stayed in during our visit to Costa Rica but the quality is so much higher that for us this is no problem at all.
NB: Monday night can be loud due to the bar next door but at the time we stayed the price is also lower on Monday night.More
