Flight was delayed, so I emailed them and let them know. Showed up at 2 AM, and Yuliana was there to receive us and show us everything we needed. Good place to stay after long flight to Costa Rica.

This is a good spot to stay over for the night if you are going to the airport - but the rooms are a little run down and I couldn't get any hot water out of the shower.

good spot for a first/last night since it's close to the airport. owner was super accomodating, even when a guest asked to shorten her stay with little notice. would recommend!

The place was very convenient coming from the airport and just staying one night. The room and bed was clean. The staff were friendly and the free shuttle in the morning was great. Cons: there wasn't really any hot water, it was just warm enough to get in. The room was pretty hot but there was a fan. The place is pretty small so in the morning when people are getting up and talking and planning their exit it was very loud for us who had had a long day of travel and we're trying to sleep.

A convenient location to the airport. No AC but it is bearable. Breakfast starts at 7am but the staff were nice enough to set out some bread and coffee for early risers at 4am.

Excellent staff, very helpful and kind. Great place to stay if you need a place to stay before an early flight or late arrival in San Jose. Close to airport, car rental companies, banks, and Hwy1 for getting away from the city. Italian restaurant with amazing pizza just a short walk away, ask at front desk.

Excellent location, close to the airport and La Radial bus station... great for people needing a place to sleep in Alajuela before heading on to another destination. Breakfast was not very substantial - bananas, biscuits, tea, coffee - but there is a supermarket across the street so you won't go hungry. Thanks for the nice stay!
