We had a great stay here, initially for 3 nights then decided to stay longer. Ronny is very welcoming and gives a lot of info about the area & activities. Breakfast is big - coffe/tea, fresh fruit, granola & eggs on toast. Their laundry service is reasonably priced also. We were lucky to get the private room on the top... More

The owners are super sweet, and Ive never been to a hostel that served you such a nice breakfast at the table, but I didn't feel clean in my room. The rooms all smelled like mold and felt old, so even though they were clean it didn't feel clean. The location of the hostel is great but if you're gonna... More

Ronny & family are wonderful hosts and super helpful. The hostel is located wicked close to the downtown area and so easy find. The minute you arrive you feel welcomed into their home. Breakfast is included from 7am - 9am and the minute you sit down they are ready to serve you coffee. The rooms are cleaned every day, and... More

Very clean and comfy hostel. Great location and really helpful arranging activities. Randy's wife and children are very kind and do a great job with room maintenance and breakfast. Randy was also very helpful with buses. Would definitely stay there again!

Only spent a couple of nights here whilst making my way around Costa Rica. Had a really long day hiking and zip-lining through the jungle and needed a good nights sleep. Staff were excellent and made us an amazing breakfast in the morning! Recommended for a few short night if you are stopping through the area.

Very good hostel, although the ambiance is not the most cozy. The family who runs it is amazing, super friendly, honest and helpful. Nice cleans rooms, with big beds and good bathrooms (hot showers) U get a big breakfast that is included in the price. Best place to stay in st. elena.

The hostel is huge. The rooms are clean. The individual bathrooms are spotless. The owners/hosts are friendly, funny, will provide best rates for tours, and they serve you a 3 course breakfast. I have never had a hostel provide such a wicked awesome breakfast.

The owners of SSC are what set this place apart. They were happy to explain all the different tour options and didn't push one company over another. They made breakfast each morning as well. When my girlfriend and I got food poisoning one day, they allowed us to make a last-minute decision to stay an extra night and also cooked... More

My wife and I went there with our 6-month old baby, and we felt very much welcome in this familiy-run establishment. The kids were off from school so they wanted to play with our baby all the time. They are genuinely nice people who like helping travelers out with all questions or arrangements they need. The room we had was... More
