    Overall excellent experience, Alonso is a great guy who cares about his hostel, the travelers, and makes sure everything runs smoothly. Very cozy and welcoming hostel with a good atmosphere to meet fellow travelers. Location couldn't be better and the free breakfast was a huge plus. Highly recommended, thank you Alonso and staff.

    I loved my stay here! Alonso and Yir were very personable and helpful, and there is a security guard on duty at night. Lots of communal space, including kitchen and outdoor grill, with a lot of electrical outlets (only one working in my room). One of the more comfortable bunk beds I've slept in. Not sure if it was on purpose or just luck, but for most of my trip we were all solo travelers in my room, which was really nice. Would definitely stay here again.

    My friend and I had a great experience here. The owner of the hostel was a great host, he booked all of the activities for us and everything was always on time which I truly appreciate. He basically booked our entire vacation for us all the way to La Fortuna and everything was on time and on point. Enough cannot be said about him and his hospitality and the way he treated us, he cares about everyone who lives in hostel and treats everyone very well.

    The best hostel in town made by one of the best hostel owners I have stayed with, the beds are comfy the showers hot and powerful in the Center of town and super safe but it’s is all made by the owner Alonso, he treats everyone like they are the first person who has walked threw his door, he’s full of knowledge and attentiveness, nothing is to much trouble and I have the upmost respect for him as a host, I have never felt so welcome and cared for in such a perfect hostel. Thank u Alonso LEGEND.

    This hostel is located near the center of town, just a short walk away from the bus station. The staff were incredibly friendly, helping to suggest activities and organize my transport to La Fortuna. It’s also incredibly nice that you can change currency in the hotel (at the same rate as the bank without the massive line), and even in the largest room (6 people) the room was clean, safe, and spacious. This place is great!

    Backpackers was a great hostel. The staff were good at helping us plan activities and all the buses picked us up directly from the hostel. The prices they offered for tours and even shuttles were very reasonable and often cheaper than at the information center in town. The hostel is in a great location, less than a 5 minute walk to the town center and very accessible by bus.

    Great location and the front desk has about 10 different adventure activities to choose from. Buses pick you up right outside the hostel and take you to your activity destination which is a huge convenience. It's also the closest hostel to the local grocery store. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here!

    I valued over anything 2 things: the kitchen and the ice pack the staff kindly lend me after I fell during one of my tours. The hostel is an old house, but it is refurbished to meet your basic backpacking needs: kitchen, a bed, hot water, a place to eat and socialize. Also, the staff is very attentive and kind. Overall, for the price and if you want to stay on budget, it is an excellent option.
