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

Well situated in the center of town, easy to find, the price was ok. We were in the top private room, which had a great view and really spacious with a private bathroom. But it was exposed to wind on all sides and you could feel the draft. Although it was also due to the awful and cold weather at... More

If I planned to stay here longer than 2 nights I would've had to change hostels. The atmosphere is uninspiring, the floors are dirty, the bed posts had nails sticking out and as a solo traveler there isn't much of a lounge to meet people. The staff was incredibly kind but not always helpful with suggestions. It was bearable but... More
