    This place was perfect. I arrived at 1 am from the airport but I let the staff know beforehand and it wasnt an issue. They provide towels and soap and even make you breakfast :) I stayed in a private room

    As all the other reviews say, the staff were friendly and helped us figure out what to do and where to go next, the room was basic but extremely clean, and it’s in a great location. It was great to stay at a locally owned inn in a country full of American and European owned hotels/ hostels. Stay here!

    We stayed for one night in order to be close to the airport for an early morning flight, and this place definitely served its purpose for that! Staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was fine.

    The place is located right in the heart of Alajuela.There's not much in amenities and the mattresses could def be upgraded, but the family that runs it are such great people and do whatever they can to make you happy. You won't find touristy stuff to do, but for someone thats either on their way in or out of Costa Rica you have plenty of markets, shops, and local restaurants to burn time. Delish breakfast comes with your stay too. Overall I was happy.

    We rented a private double room for one night. This place was close to the airport so the taxi ride was about $5 usd. We checked in at 12:30 am so they charged an extra $4 usd for the late check in but we were happy for the service. Rooms were simple and clean. Shared bathroom was clean.

    I was just there for one night after flying in late to San Jose. The staff waited up and were really helpful with onward travel. Breakfast is nice and they provide products in the bathrooms. Everything is clean and comfortable. Sadly when I arrived other guests were asleep with the only fan pointing directly on one of them. This is obviously not the hostels fault.

    Perfect, easy, cheap place to stay near the airport the night before my flight out of Costa Rica. Helpful and friendly staff, they even ordered me a cab to get to the airport in the morning. The breakfast included was delicious too!
