    Everyone was incredibly nice! Especially at the reception there are such great people. Only the older breakfast lady is very unfriendly but she should not stand in the way of a visit to this accommodation.

    This place was amazing! You have an immaculate view of mountains and the clouds that cover the hostel from time to time. It was super clean and secure. You’re getting so much more than what you paid for. Staff was super fun and loved to joke around. They were very helpful with organizing trips to the cloud forest and coffee tours!

    Wow. This place exceeded my expectations. The best part was the staff. Thank you Ro and Diego for everything!! The beds were nice, the water was hot, the breakfast was yummy, the views were spectacular. My only tiny complaint was the loud motorcycles driving by at all hours which was unfortunate but i didn’t care all that much because the experience overshadowed it. The staff were beyond helpful and so kind and accommodating. I truly felt at ease. If/When I come back to Costa Rica, I will be sure to stay ag

    Staff was super friendly, very helpful. You can only get in with a key - so felt super secure and safe. The rooms were nice and clean, with a beautiful view - but still very close to city center. After our stay we went directly to Santa Teresa, you can get there by bus, works perfectly and takes 6 hours in total. Only downside: We felt like the first guy at the reception kind of wanted to sell us a shuttle, saying that the journey would take us more than 9 hours in total. But overall great!

    Location was good, great views, loved the outdoor seating area (very cozy). Street noise was a bit loud in the evening, but you get used to it. Staff was very helpful with pickups, coordinating shuttles, and figuring out day tours. Facilities were clean (community kitchen as well), breakfast was good.

    Very nice stay. Very close to little market and two restaurants. Adequate parking for vehicles. Short 4 min walk into main part of town. Easy check in process. Right along a main road where drivers speed by at night, if you are sensitive to noise bring ear plugs. Nice open air facility with great staff.

    The hotel is located with a wonderful view. However if you want to sleep early (or before 11pm) it is bearly impossible because the walls are like paper and you can hear everyone chatting around and the loud cars. Otherwise the host was super nice and I still recommend if you are a heavy sleeper!

    The best part about this hostel is the staff. They’re always around to help and can answer any questions you have with great attention. The breakfast was really good too, along with the view! The only downside was that our room was straight across from reception down the same corridor every had to use to get in and out so didn’t feel very private as there was a window onto the corridor that didn’t fully close.

    Very nice place with a beautiful view! More like a bed and breakfast than a hostel. Breakfast was good and staff is nice. Only downside is our window was facing the street and is not soundproof at all so we heard loud scouters but not a big deal.
