I got up in the morning to catch the first bus to San Jose. The hostel guy knew I was doing this the night before. The place was all locked up so I couldn't leave. I missed three buses before he finally showed up, without the keys to they had to break in. The place is just left abandoned in the night. I met three guys who had to sleep on the beach because they couldn't get into their room. Really unsafe.
On top of that, I lost my camera in the waterfall. I told the hostel guy and he said his friend would find it for me for free. So I stupidly told him where to find it. Then he said he wanted $100 to give it back to me. The hostel guy said "If I were you I'd pay it." Thanks Hostel Lys!
Beds, toilets and showers are filthy. This is really basic stuff.
There is a kitchen (essential in Costa Rica on a travellers budget) but it is the worse hostel kitchen I've ever seen. No bowls, pans, cups or spoons.
All in all, the worst hostel experience of my life. Please stay away.
