I stayed here sept 2011.
At arrival the reception staff was very helpfull , friendly and spoke English . They had my reservation and observed it . I was shown to a 6 femal dorm room for 14$ a night . clean rooms the bed sheets were a little worn and crunky . Bed served it purpose . Theres safes in the room with your own key .
There is a big pool with lying down chairs . I was happy about that and used it well in the hot weather . They have a chill area with couches and drink and food place ( although I went out alot , or had meals on excursions .
I went during quiet season and couldn't get on the transfer I thought I could get to tortuguero . But when I asked the front desk and told them , they immediately told me they can and it's guaranteed even if I was alone .( amazing ) and 40). So I was happy about there help and organization .
It's a 3 min walk down the street to bars , breakfast , massages ( got volcanic scrub , massage and facial for 45$. Very touristy .
good spot for a couple days for excursions ( atv, hot springs ,volcano )
