Great stay! The staff were friendly! They offered shuttle service from the airport which helped! Manfred was very helpful, had great suggestions on places to go and not to go, and why! Close to bus stops and supermarket! Would recommend for sure!

I booked this hostel because I specifically needed this exact location and neighborhood, so I was glad to have found it. All in all a decent place. No drinks or snacks available for purchase but wifi was good. The hostel is bland in terms of atmosphere but it is located in one of the most charming towns of Costa Rica, which helps. The hosts are very kind.
