Great location, 2 min walk to the town centre where lots of restaurants/sodas/shops/Bank etc can be found. Very clean, fantastic swimming pool and the view of Arenal Volcano. We paid $28pppn for a twin room with a private bathroom, unfortunately there was no hot water, due to some problems they had, so we had to use a common shower instead... The room was huge, had it's own TV and a/c. There is a restaurant as well as some sofas and tables in front of the reception to chill out. Free internet cafe + wifi.
They also organise tours and shuttles to Monteverde for $22 but you can get it cheaper for $18 in the town centre. So it's good to shop around.
All in all it's a good place with a great vibe and pleasant staff. We would definitely stay there again.
