From start to finish, this hostel was one of my favorites in Costa Rica. The owner was warm and welcoming, as well as helpful in getting our next shuttle prepared. It was like staying in a log cabin. We had a clean room, clean bathroom with warm showers, and delicious (and free) breakfast that they cook for you on the spot.
Its a 5-10 minute walk from the main street with shops and restaurants. I don't mind being a little off the beaten path, made it feel more like a lodge than some party hostel. The view from the patio is nice to enjoy on the rocking chairs. There is coffee, water, or tea at anytime in the kitchen. I was impressed with the WiFi strength, its all over the hostel and even in the rooms.
It is very well priced for the high quality. We had a wonderful stay and I will definitely stay here again!!
