For $32 a night (low season rate) we stayed in a room with AC, cable, and hot water. It was immaculately clean and the location couldn't be better. It's right in the middle of town, but the surroundings immediately around it are very quiet and you don't get any of the town noise. It's the perfect combo of location and peacefulness. The staff is very helpful (and speak good English) and the location is safe (there are bars on all the windows which is nice in CR - indicative of safety, not crime). There is a general pool area and kitchen area overlooking the main street but it's away from the rooms and there is a limit on when people can use it so it's never crowded or noisy at night. The rooms are small - very small - but perfect for 2 people. Overall, it's a GREAT value and would highly recommend it for both the price, the location, and what you actually get. I have stayed there on 2 separate trips and wouldn't stay anywhere else again.
