After driving for about 8 hours, we finally arrived to Puerto Jimenez. It was late in the night and we were extremely tired and fatigued. The hotel that we originally booked locked their gates, so we were unable to even check in. Feeling hopeless, an elderly lady from across the street was noticed our visible stress and began talking to us. We told her about our situation and she informed us about her own little hotel—Cabinas the Corner. At that point, we were drained so we immediately took on her offer and decided to stay at this hostel.
At ~$15/night, we were getting a deal. It, obviously, is not going to have the same amenities or furnishings as a whatever-star hotel, but it's a place where you can sleep and clean yourself. In fact, for $15/night, I was rather surprised by the cleanliness of the room. The hotel is ran by the grandma and her granddaughter—two very, very sweet and friendly people.
If you are looking for a cheap place to stay with the basic daily necessities, Cabinas the Corner is the place to go!
