“Great Staff!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Really enjoyed our stay here the staff were really friendly and the rooms were clean, there is a fullt stacked Kitchen, Flatscreen TV and Computers. We took the day tour with Manny as well and can't reccommend that enough he took us to all the local spots and we saw a sloth at about 5 feet away! We also saw the Arenal area and lots of other Wildlife, he was really friendly and gave us loads of information about the area. On top of this he also got up at 5 to drive us to the Bus station to catch our red eyed bus. The only drawback is that this place is a bit of a ways out of the City Centre but other than that can't fault it!

The only thing i wanna say is: if something in your hostel didn't suits me is better if you appreciate my comment and try to learn from your mistake because you have all the quality to be a very good hostel, but if something didn't go as I expected you couldn't say to me "it was your fault". I'm not agree with the rules that at 11pm TV, computer and commons area being shut. Is not our fault if the electricity in costa rica is expensive... I pay you more if you need money but let me use the facilities you have. Breakfast is really poor. If the owners are tired because a lot of work, they should take someone else to help them ... So you can have a nice smile on your face.

hello and thanks for your comment, we really analyze all comments.

we understand some people do not appreciate when some one try to help all our brothers in this planet, we understand that economy facilities are not the same for all, we see people that really have money to pay more for this or payy more for that...thats good, but if you can pay moer for this or that...why you did not book a place that charge normal rates of 16$ dorms or 35$ private share baths?? you can do it ;) , and in this case you can use 24rh tv full volume...24hr kitchen and wake up people that really arrive late from flights or have to wake up really early to take a flight...some people do not take care of anything worse other people, BUT we try to take care of all of you, we thing 6am to 11pm shedule is good for all, we know is not your fault how expensive is lla services in this contry, and is not our foult too!! some are not goind to change our rules for economy and give our contribution to our planet becouse we really love our planet...your planet too!!!
breakfast is 2 panckecks per person, free coffe and tee i thing for just $5!!!! we can not give you a bouffet, 24hr services...free tours...free nights...free beers, if you wnat 5 stars services..pay for that but here is a place with basic services, clean,safe area, cheap beds,cheap shuttles to aairport and bus terminal,cheap tours better that any in costa rica, so pleace there is some pleople that realy wants to safe some money, if you can pay expensive places give the oportunity to others to save the money they really need.
our staff do 100% better than other that get rich from your pockets...they obviously have 10 people try to gat rich from you ;) ... our gool is HELP ALL TRAVELLERS ROUND THE WORLD with love from costa rica love to all!! ;)

Nice enough place, located in a quiter area. The room was very small but surprisingly had a TV in it (which we didn't use). Owner is very nice, though he was an hour late picking us up from the airport.

The staff were amazing, our bus was late but they waited for us which we didn't expect, they helped with our trip planning, luggage storage and other helpful travel advise to keep safe. The place has a really great atmosphere for relaxing or meeting people. They offer some great budget friendly tours and the shuttle service is really handy. We are going to stay here on our way out of costa rica as well. In sumary we love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This place offers a refreshing level of comfort on a budget. It is close to San Jose but in a peaceful area (pretty, unpolluted, quiet) - the buses to downtown are cheap, frequent and leave from round the corner. A lovely spot, really recommend it.

I can highly recommend the hostel. It´s a great place to stay, very nice atmosphere and I would definitely stay there again. The staff is super lovely and helpful with everything, offering airport tranfers at any day- or nighttime for a very good price and nice tours with much insider info, showing the best places to spot animals. It was the best way to get further off the beaten track! The owner was remarkably kind and put a lot of effort into guiding the tours what really made it a unique experience for me. The hostel itself was very clean, had a big TV, comfortable beds and good breakfast. It is located in a secure area with friendly neighboors and shops and bars nearby. There is a nice terrace with lots of flowers and a cute colibrí to observe as well!!
