    I had a wonderful stay at this lovely place. The owner and the employees were super friendly and showed great hospitality. Common rooms (with great paintings in the walls btw) make it very easy to socialize in this place and create a really nice and relaxed atmosphere. They can book all the tours for you in town or give you information about the transport to the rain forests of Santa Elena and Monteverde. Also further transport to another cities in Costa Rica can be arranged. Pura Vida!

    Very friendly staff. I enjoyed all of the murals on the walls and it’s a neat building with the exposed wood work in the rooms. Also very clean. Good vibes, I would come back and I would also recommend.

    Everyone talks about Alfonso for a reason. He is so helpful and welcoming. Even though it was off season the hostel still was sociable. Best shower in Costa Rica in any hostel hands down!

    Chill quiet clean hostel. I liked the murals and common rooms. Was very relaxing staying here. The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Couldn't charge phone in 6 bed dorm because there is only one outlet that I could find in the room. Take a shower at times when other people aren't or get a shower first -because I didn't have hot water for my shower. Maybe it's a small hot water tank ? Anyways, I would stay here again for sure!

    Small and cosy hostel. Staff were lovely and helpful. Atmosphere was friendly and sociable, but it's not a party hostel. Good location near a bus stop to Monteverde park. 2 minutes walk into the town centre with shops and restaurants. Had a great stay!

    Overall, a good spot in town close to restaurants and grocery stores, free breakfast, with hot water in the shower and fleece blankets on the beds, and staff were helpful explaining buses and booking activities. But smaller hostel than I expected, so you were never far away from people being loud in the main room, and it was cold. The front door was open all day and evening (though it was closed and locked around 10pm) and the bathroom walls were open at the roof, letting all the cold air in.

    Best hostel shower I've ever had, and there was two bathrooms in a 6 bed dorm! Alonso is amazing, he is very helpful and so welcoming. All hostels in this area seemed basic, but this one, due to all the little things was amazing.
