This hostel was recommended to us by a hostel in Monteverde and we are VERY glad we followed their advice.
It was like having a home away from home! Great little kitchen and dining area - excellent for saving the pennies and not having to pay for meals out all the time.
We were really impressed with how clean it was. The cleaning lady was busy at work for HOURS every day.
We had a private room with shared facilities for $6 each a night. We were very pleased as we'd heard Costa Rica is more expensive than other Central American countries, but here we got a private room for the average price we'd been paying for dorms elsewhere on our travels!
The owner was really nice and helpful. The hot water on the shower wasn't working when we first arrived and she had a plumber out to replace it immediately! She also spent lots of time fixing the Wifi when it wasn't working. She was very conscientious that all the facilities should be in proper working order - a service we don't usually expect when the room rates are so low.
Amazing value for money! Also great location - 5 minute walk from the centre but away from the main drag.
There were also rooms (as the previous reviewer said) for $20 with extra facilities - TV, private bathroom, own fridge etc. Again still great value!
