I was backpacking in Costa Rica and this hostel was "our pick" in the lonely planet in the budget option. Prices had raised a lot (+30% at least) from the book. We ended up in a shared tent with real mattress for 35$. It was ok, but we could elsewhere get a private room with bathroom for around that amount. Therefore it is a little more expensive than a backpacking options. Other than that, it was nice. The pool area in nice, everything is really clean and is is well situated. Make sure to bring US Dollars as the exchange rate for local colonnes kind of a rip off... We booked excisions (Baldi and a shuttle) and then found out we could have paid less money for the same thing. I would recommend this place, but know what you'll have to pay for!
