My partner and I stayed just one night but loved our time at Sura Hotel. Everything was clean and cozy, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Delicious homemade breakfast was provided, clean drinking water available, and laundry services were also available (for a small charge). The location felt very convenient with bus stations walkable distance, and we loved the outdoor space and balcony. It felt like we had been welcomed into someone’s home and we were well taken care of.

Exactly what I wanted. Sura is a clean place with free breakfast and WiFi, good for a night before heading to the buses 2 blocks away. Had a great stay at this hostel. Only 15 minute ride from the airport, It is well equipped. Clean, large rooms with a overhead fan. Some rooms dispose of a terrace, but they have a large terrace downstairs that has multiple lounge chaurs to sit and read the newspaper. Free breakfast is fruits, toast, eggs with rice and beans, toast, tea and coffee. Lovely staff.

Small hotel but everything how it should be. Clean, spacious and very friendly! Breakfast is amazing! We came back to stay there a second time and it was even better than the first time 2 weeks ago. Perfect location for the bus to Monteverde or Puerto Viejo, it is just a 5min walk to the bus terminal!
