    Can't beat it for the money. Not a vacation spot, but it is a great waypoint getting in and out of Costa Rica. Shopping and major bus terminals are nearby. .

    Pretty sketchy at night. My mattress was damp and the walls were moldy. Smelt gross. But not the worst for a one night stay after a late flight for under $10.

    We only stayed for one night and took an Uber to go there and were quite happy about it, cause the area seemed unsafe at night. Staff welcomed us very friendly and led us to the room, which was small and smelly. Relaxing after a long bus ride was not possible since the mattress was super thin, one could feel the metal underneath. Later little cockroaches appeared so that we asked for another room, they knew about it and gave us a bigger and nicer room. Maybe s****y rooms are for shortstays..
