If you like nature in your room, stay here. Otherwise, I suggest finding a cleaner hotel.
Yes, it's Costa Rica and bugs are part of nature, but I do not want them on my bed! Every night we had to do a sweep for bugs in our bed because there would be something different in our room every night.
The washrooms were kept dark and dim, so it was hard to see if they were clean. So I cannot review that. Rooms were more like little cabins.
The restaurant was ok, but food was very simple and in small portions.
This hotel is hidden in an alleyway but it is a minute walk to the main street.
There is a possibility waking up in the early morning due to monkeys running around on the roof. Pretty nice to hear but a little surreal.
Overall, there are plenty of other hostels and hotels you can stay out. You don't need to stay at this one.
