    The staff is fabulous, very knowledgeable and friendly. I did not read the return email and arrived a day early, they happily booked a night at Pura Vida hostel for me. They are related and 6 doors apart 🙂 with air conditioning. My largest advice is not to stay in the front 2 units at Dodero, mine was #5. LOUD street traffic until 2:30-3:00 am, no AC & lack of air requires an open window.

    It was disappointing to that the hostel was super strict about masks. I don't know what it is with Costa Rica and their masks, but the US is not like that. The guests there are nice and we even traveled with one of them to the border. The internet wasn't very good. We had to go out to the mini-courtyard to get it to work somewhat well. We had air conditioning in our room, but it didn't seem to work well. It's a cute place overall and has an outdoor kitchen, which is nice.

    Great pillows! Bedrooms were clean. Nice to be able to use the kitchen. One block from the bus station Not really a “hostel”. But then I guess everyone is only here for the night to move on to another location.

    I would not recommend staying here. Our private room was in the worst location, right in between the kitchen and main office. We barely got sleep at night because we could hear everything. Bathrooms smelled bad and ran out of toilet paper. There is a cat who roams around and I witnessed it pooping in the back yard. One shower didn’t drain so you were showering in stagnant water. Also, there was no hot water to shower with. Overall, not worth staying here.
