Wow!! This place is nice. Seriously feel like you are staying in an upscale hotel. They have nice lounge area with huge flat screen TV. Even some of the private rooms have flat screens. They have an upstairs open air seating area and chairs and couches are all throughout the hotel to find your own spot.
They also have a bar and restaurant. I only had the breakfast but the menu looks good and prices are standard for Costa Rica I guess. I opted for the dorm room for $14 but you can pay $19 and have a decent breakfast includeid also. Clean linens and the ladies make your bed for you everyday. Friendly helpful staff.
There is an ATM across the street and a couple of other restaurants next door. The Chinese joint is ok but forget about the Italian place. Overpriced and crap food. Walking distance to other places and also the downtown shopping area.
Make use of the shuttle too. They have small lockers but this place seems to have decent security.
