    Superb

    Great Hostel. Location was great for all things Monteverde and being so close to the bus stop made it super easy coming in and out. Not a great party vibe but dorms were adequate especially given the price. Staff was awesome and super helpful.

    Great value for money. Room was very clean and ended up having only my friend and I in a 6 bed dorm. Location is great next to the barrio escalante, which is one of the few nice areas to go in San Jose at night. A few of the toilets were a bit dirty and the train going right outside our rooms was extremely loud at 7 am

    Pool area and outside space is nice and green. The restaurant has good food at reasonable prices. The immediate surroundings are not very attractive but the city centre is easily accessible on foot. My double room was quite dark as it was underground and window opened onto a corridor.

    Het personeel was heel behulpzaam en aangenaam. Ontbijt was erg lekker, top locatie. Enkel moeilijk om spullen te leggen in de slaapzaal en geen persoonlijke locker. Oudere soloreizigers (30-40 jaar). Rustig hostel.

    Scary location, not close to anything including bus station so you will have to get a taxi. The room was fine, charger next to my head and a curtain which was nice, fine for one night!

    Lovely hostel with nice outdoor area, bar and place to socialise, but pretty dead! Might have been because we were travelling in off-peak season, but having been to other hostels in the nearby area since I have realised that not all hostels are like this. The food at the restaurant was delicious and reasonably priced, and the staff at reception were helpful as well. The rooms were relatively basic and there was nowhere secure to store belongings. Overall it was a nice place to stop for the night but not sure I would return.

    Nice place to stay for one night, but it is not very clean. Found hairs on one of the pillows, and generally a gritty vibe. Cool pool, and a very nice food! The bartender/chef was very nice and made good food!

    This place is definitely not for someone who wants to rest the train passes behind every hour or so and sounds the horn about 15 times , starts at 5 am and stops at 11:pm .The walls of the bedrooms have zero sound proof so you can hear constantly hear open and closing the doors.The bedroom was clean even though had a weird smell and at night I was frizzing since they give you a very thin blanket. Money was stole from my bedroom.

    This place is foul. Let me preface by saying that I am a seasoned backpacker, SE Asia, Central America, Peru but this was the dirtiest hostel I have ever seen. The rooms were in the basement, no light and an over powering smell of the toilet and mold which was clearly attempting to be covered up by moth balls. Filth everywhere, floors/walls, the mattresses were covered in mold and brown/yellow stains with bugs on them. I left immediately and was denied a refund. You actually risk getting sick.

    This hostel is the worst I’ve ever been to. It is extremely dirty and falling apart, there is no safe space to leave youe luggage, no soap or paper towels/ dryers in any of the toilets, no atmosphere whatsoever. We saw the place and within an hour decided to lose our money and stay somewhere else.
