    Had a great time at Casa Juan. Staff is nice, place is very very cozy. You can borrow bikes for free to drive around town. Kitchen is sometimes not tidied, but wasn’t an issue for us and the next morning staff would have cleaned all of it. Would recommend staying here when in El Valle

    The place is wonderful 😊 I loved the decorations, graffiti in the bathroom, the pets 😍. Just the guy who checked me in was arrogant, tried to make everybody feel stupid. Anyway, I would come back.

    Great atmosphere. Dorms area simple and small. They get hot during the day but at night cool off if you leave the door open. Lots of nice space on the property.

    Comfy place with nice atmosphere! Kitchen is well equipped but not so clean. Private rooms have own bathrooms but a lot of mold on the wall. Good location and friendly staff, but they were not helpful at all when we forgot a personal item at the hostel and were trying to get it back, which was very disappointing given that other hostels had put in a lot of effort with a similar situation.

    Private room was not clean, toilet paper all wet because it leaked through the roof somewhere. Everything is old. We know we are in Costa Rica and have had plenty of Hostels but this one was just not okay. For the positive note: they do offer a direct shuttle to Santa Catalina (but be sure you check your own Google Maps.. our driver wanted to take the wrong way and it would’ve taken us 1,5 hrs longer..)
