“Helpful, Friendly, Good Breakfast, Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Good location. Room was very clean. Breakfast was big and very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful, arranging for a taxi to the airport. Overall a great value and we would definitely stay there again.

First thanks to Alex and his wife for the warm welcome we received. We stayed one night in the beginning of our trip and then two more before the flight back. We had a great stay, it's clean, they make free pancakes and cofee in the morning and we had a lot of great valuable information about getting around by car in Alajuela (kind of not easy to drive into). Thanks a lot! Pura Vida :)

This is as good a place as your going to find near the airport, A Hostel run and owned by a couple who both worked in the tourist industry before they bought this place. It's about 5 dollars Taxi ride from the airport and they will get you back free. The wifi is strong and they have two extra computers for those who don't have them. He was a guide all over Costa Rica before he settled down to the Hostel hosting and knows all the best ways to get around safely. She worked in the Parks before and is also very helpful. The bed was great, the breakfast was excellent and the coffee better then Starbux.

This is a great little hostel. The owners Alex and Matilde are the most friendly and helpful people ever! The breakfast (included) is different every day but always yummy!

Very convenient place for exploring the town and close to the International Airport and day trips to great places. The owners (a family) were so friendly and helpful we felt at home straight away. It's a clean and tidy place and is good value for money with the breakfast included. I highly recommend it. The only comment I would have is that perhaps the private room we were in could have had a bedside table and small lamp.
