It is a cold unfriendly place. The music is put on loud early. I was given tasteless scrambled eggs when I asked for fried and there was scum in the bottom of my coffee cup. A bird flew into a large window pane and died during breakfast and we were told it happens all the time. A giant stag horn... More

Good value with clean, very basic rooms (I was in a dorm room - private rooms may be better). Great breakfast. Only downside was the staff who were not very friendly or welcoming, which was a shame as the place could be much much 'warmer' with a little more interest from them.

We stayed in this nice hotel the night before treking up to Chirripo. It was a good choice, as the hotel is located at the trail head. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff of the hotel is very friendly. They prepare the breakfast from 4:30, so that you can start your hike early enough. They let you leave... More

The location is hard to beat if youre climbing Chiripo! This place has a little bit of a 1955 roadside motel feel, with some pretty odd color combinations, but the rooms are clean, with hot water, and a great restaurant. The staff here was pleasant and helpful. We would happily stay here again.

Stayed here for a night. Reasonably priced. The restaurAnt was the best part! The sopa negro, vegetable arroz and the pasta is so good. We are vegan and they catered to our needs! The rooms are stocked with blankets and are nice and cool. The location is beautiful you couldn't ask for more. The hot shower was great!

There are two good lodges near the ascent to Chirripo. This hotel, Hotel Uran and a very sweet place called Casa Mariposa. The advantage of Hotel Uran is that it has everything you need for preparing for your hike. You can rent a sleeping bag, gas stove (which you need if you want to be able to heat water up... More

We stayed here for one night and it has been enough for me. The whole room was crawling! I know that its in the jungle, but there is a difference if there got one bug into the room or bug colonies are building their nests. Needless to say that the receptionist was not the nicest. All lights go out 10... More

Great position, excellent service and food, helpful staff, had a great 2 night stay. Very helpful after coming off the backpacking trip: mud room, laundry, fresh food. Right at the trail head for Cerro cirripo.

I'm glad the hotel finally shows up in Tripadvisor site. We stayed in December 2011. My husband and I hiked Chirripo while my mom (70 years) and brother stayed in one of the little cabanas they have for the couple of nights we were up. They were treated really well and loved the stay and the food. The cabanas are... More

Spent the night here before hiking Chirripo and it was just what we needed. Perfect location right at the entrance of the National Park. Rooms are ok - clean and with hot water, food is good (they start serving breakfast at 4:30 a.m. in case you want to grab something before the hike), and you can leave your car at... More
