This hostel is a joke! The address is wrong! It is not in Alajuela! NOT close to the airport as the address suggests its a hour away (in traffic) NOT a hostel. It is a Homestay in the guys house. If you want that sort of thing great, but we did not and got misled. He finally picked us up and then wasted our whole day running errands while we were in the car. The "FREE" shuttle cost us $20 US as he took us to Zoo Ave, only because his place was too far away to catch a cab. He overcharged us to

We were picked up at the airport by Alonso in his yellow Land Rover. He took us to the location which turned out to be different than was decribed on website. It turns out to be his house that he recently moved into. It is high in the hills in a residential area, far from activities or taxi. A few blocks down the hill is the best western paradise and a bus line. Okay location if you want to live like a local. This place is more like a B&B. Nice view of san jose from upstairs bedroom window.
