I stayed here on two separate occasions while I was traveling throughout Costa Rica. If you are looking for peace and tranquility, this is the place. I arrived late at night during my first stay, but they had a friendly and accommodating receptionist who told me all I needed to know about the hostel. In the morning I ate the complementary breakfast at the hostel. It was sufficient, but if you would like a larger breakfast I recommend going to one of the small restaurants around the hostel. The staff will happily tell you a good and cheap place to eat. All of the rooms are dedicated to peace makers and revolutionaries, which adds I nice spin to the accommodation. The hostel has free wireless access for its guests, as well as a large free library. Overall, I would recommend this hostel as a place to stay.
