I stayed here for a few nights on various ocasions whilst traveling in Costa Rica. the main reason was that the project i was volunteering with had mentioned this place being easy to get to from the airport and also reasonably priced ($12 a night). The good things were that it was clean, the staff were friendly, the laundry service was great ($8 for one basket) and there were a good ammount of rooms. I found the place quite quiet though. I guess it is situated in a quieter place of town but despite the number of rooms and staying on both weekdays and weekends, it was never full. The price is good, as it includes breakfast (pancakes) and there is a small kitchen which guests can use to the own preference throughout the day. The computer area is small, and the facilities are ok but one time i stayed the wifi was down. However this was resolved by the tome i returned in the evening from a tour. The tours that the hostel offer are great, there is a wide range and they are very good at organizing these or guests. We ordered a taxi to leave for the airport on the day of our departure, and were a little annoyed that we had to remind them about this in the morning, (maybe a lack of communication between staff on night and day shifts). we paid the lady who was working in the evening, and we weren't made aware that it was one of the day staff who would be taking us to the airport, when we asked her where our taxi was she did'nt know we had booked and pre-paid at the desk the night before, so a little bit hit and miss however overall it was decent and provided everything we needed during the stay.
