Although the new owner is a little crotchety (interesting for someone so young), the Pension Sta. Elena is a pleasant place to stay. The staff is generally helpful in securing adventure excursions, and the rooms are clean. There are electric showers!!! THe prices are excellent--dorm beds are the cheapest, but my dad and I stayed in a room with a bathroom and two beds (ELECTRIC SHOWER!!!!!) for $14/night. This is an excellent jumping off point for sky treks, jeep boat jeep to Arenal, and the cloud forest.

I've staryed there for two years in a row and highly recommend Pension Sta. Elena. If you are on a budget and want a hot shower and a communal kitchen and a hammock to hang out in, this is the place for you!
