“For $8 a night - awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

There's a kitchen, tv, good proximity

You're getting a bit more than what you're paying in this case.

And the owners are nice and funny.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

My husband and I stayed here as there was no availability anywhere else. It was meant to be for a quick visit to Volcan Poas but ended up staying longer as we got stuck during the easter weekend. We payed 10us for a double room with a shared bathroom. We shared the bathroom with 2 other rooms which wasnt too bad. There was no toilet seat, but this seems quite usual in latin america! The bathroom sink also kept leaking and he was getting annoyed at us all saying we werent allowed to run the water for more than 5 seconds!! He also got really annoyed at another couple who booked a volcano tour through someone other than him! We did the same but he didnt find out at the driver knew of his bad temper so dropped us off further down the road to save us the hassle from the owner incase he seen. The driver warned us he has got violent with a guest in the past. He actually also got annoyed at us for knocking on his door to give him the room key back rather than using the doorbell - which looked like a lightswitch!

Other than this, the room was ok. It has a fan but didnt really work properly. There were no insects in the room which was a nice change. We were on the ground floor and the curtain was a bit seethrough for our liking!

There was also the use of a kitchen but this was one of the worst kitchens we seen on our travels. It was so old, dirty and full of insects we didnt even cook here, just used the fridge!

I wouldnt recommend this hotel at all.

Stayed April 2011, traveled as a couple
