The hostel was wonderful! We only stayed 1 night, but I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and homey feeling. The only downfall was there there was only 1 bathroom for a few rooms to share, which required some patience. Overall, excellent! More

A safe, welcoming place close to the airport (5 min. taxi ride = $5, may be ~$10 in traffic). Also, Maleku held my suitcase for a week while I traveled around! They have an official system in place to hold baggage: you fill out a form about your date of leaving and return, and sign it. More

The bathroom in the dorm was handy and the balcony bar was great. Being right next door to the buses to San Jose is really nice as well. More
