Decent SpotPosted Sep 24, 2013
Pros: Working A/C in rooms, hot water, and close to SJO airport. The bar upstairs was cool and serves great pizza and cold beer daily from 4pm-12am
Cons: They were still trying to renovate while I was there which was a bit noisy during the day.
Location: Alajuela is not that great of a place to visit but there was a great bar near by; "Boliva Relax" with tasty tapas and ice cold beer.
The rooms were cheap and the free shuttle to the airport was really convenient.

Right for the PricePosted Apr 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Hostel was nice. The staff was helpful, but may have been spread a little thin. It took a while to get food and drinks at the restaurant and the bar. But the food came in large portions and was reasonably priced. The rooms were spacious, but the location of some of the rooms in the center of the building made the air stagnant. There was an air-conditioner in the room but it was not working. My roommate was annoying and kept me up more than I would have liked with her tossing and turning and flipping on the lights at all hours of the night. I suggest getting the bottom bunk and hanging your towel to reduce the blinding light in your face when it is unexpectedly turned on. Speaking of towels, there are none provided at the Hostel so be sure to bring your own. Overall, the place is secure and I never has a problem, but I kept all of my things close at hand. The very nice things about this hostel that some others don't offer are the restaurant, bar, TV lounge, and a free shuttle to the airport. A car ride to or from the hostel to the airport should only be about 3-4,000 colones. Beers at the hostel are 1,400 but there is a cute little bar with friendly people just around the corner where they are only 500. It is nice and totally stumbling distance to the hostel (it is on the same block, just around the corner). You get what you pay for and I enjoyed the quality of this place and the money I saved.

great for one night stay!Posted Mar 20, 2013
The staff at the hostel really helped me out. My room was clean and comfortable. There is a childrens park right across the street. Other than the park, I didn't enjoy the location much. We didn't venture out far and when we did, it was sketchy. There is a bank and store nearby but I didn't feel good looking for restaraunts. Great for an overnight stay but i wouldn't stay longer

Very Basic ...bed and bathroomPosted Feb 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very basic two METAL bunk beds which were loud when someone moved in the middle of the night. Big bathroom but very old structure on busy street not much around the area. We stayed here after arriving early morning (2am) flight. Close to the airport but limited time schedules on shuttle we took a taxi only around $5-8 taxi ride. Car rental company picked us up from hotel and drove us to car rental counter.

This hostel was had very basic private rooms. staying here for a night after flying into San Jose was much better then staying in San Jose. Helpful Staff. Great 4th story bar with view. Watch out for the rats behind the computer bar. Location gives you a good feel for the tico culture. Not any tourists. Would stay here again for a night before flying out.

For what we payed, I was expecting a better experience.We payed less for a room at Manuel Antonio in a hotel the next night. That said, it was super convenient, it was a 4000 calones cab ride from the airport and the free shuttle to the airport was great.
