Fantastic area, great budget price, loads of amenities, and great neighborhood! The staff was AMAZING and helpful! I stayed in both the dorm and a private room, and both met my expectations.
The vibe here is amazing! Very relaxed and with the beautiful plants in the common area you have no idea you’re in a city! The complimentary breakfast was very delicious and a generous portion. Loved it!
It was a great place to sleep and prepare for travel within Costa Rica. Wifi is available, but take your own device for communications. Appreciated transportation to and from the airport.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. There are only 3-4 parking spots, which have to be requested/reserved ahead of time. The water in our room was cold. Great deal for the price we paid.
