    By far the nicest hostel we stayed during out 8 day vacation in Costa Rica. I can see how some people would comment it to be a party hostel but it was quite the opposite during our stay. The beds were comfortable and rooms well cooled which was perfect for me, they do give you a heavy blanket upon check-in for those not use to the temperature. The bathroom was a but odd since they have glass walls separating the toilet and shower but you are able to lock the doors for privacy. Highly recommend.

    Great spot with a really friendly vibe. The dorm is much more comfortable and private than most hostels. You get a cubicle-type bunk with a screen, which makes it much easier to avoid being disturbed by others. The only issue I had was the bathroom situation. The shower is glass in a shared dorm, which means you have to hope everyone understands not to use the bathroom while you're showering (which ended up being the case for me). It'd be a 10/10 if they figured that out.

    This place was fine for a night. My friend flew in to join me in Costa Rica and this was an east place to on meet. I love doing the pod dorm rooms. The only odd thing was the bathroom door was frosted glass which is odd for a shared dorm room.

    I'm writing this review because I enjoyed my stay. 1. The desk staff are great. Super helpful and professional. 2. The beds are great. 3. The showers are okay? Mine didn't have heat. Toilets are okay. All in all, okay. 4. The room itself is fine. Aircon is not great. Basically, it's pretty hot at night. 5. It smells when you get a few ppl in a room. 6. The bar isn't very great, at all. Neither is the bar tender. 7. The kitchen and seating area is blah. 8. Wheres the pool? 9. 7.9/10

    Hostel with a hotel vibe. I appreciated the large seating areas and the landscaping is pretty but this hostel needs a deep clean. 8 person dorm bathroom was filthy. Housekeeping would barely clean/sweep leaving hair everywhere. Kitchen is inadequate and lacks basic cooking tools. I was working so the location doesn’t bother me. But know this is Escazú and not San Jose. You will need to Uber into SJ to see anything. Older woman at front desk is unpleasant.
