My first day in Costa Rica was spent at this hostel, and it was a very good time. The hostel itself seems very average, however it is equipped with certain amenities that make it very noteworthy. The pool is great. The attached bar is really convenient and fun, and we met a lot of cool people as a result of the presence of this meeting place. The food and drinks are very reasonable. The rooms are okay, nothing great, so come here if you are looking for a good social experience, not a relaxing stay.
