This is a great little hostel. The owners Alex and Matilde are the most friendly and helpful people ever! The breakfast (included) is different every day but always yummy!

Very convenient place for exploring the town and close to the International Airport and day trips to great places. The owners (a family) were so friendly and helpful we felt at home straight away. It's a clean and tidy place and is good value for money with the breakfast included. I highly recommend it. The only comment I would have is that perhaps the private room we were in could have had a bedside table and small lamp.

I stayed for a few days in Trotamundos, and everything went fine. The staff is really friendly and helpful - the manager has an extensive knowledge of wildlife in Costa Rica. The breakfast is good and filling (gallo pinto) and the rooms are ok. Several showers and bathrooms, wifi is available and you can use the kitchen. Probably one of the best places I stayed at in Costa Rica. Definitely recommended!

Backpackers, this is one of the best places to stay in Alajuela!
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, always willing to answer your questions. The owner makes a very good gallo pinto for breakfast, and they have a terrific kitchen you can use, with everything you need to cook your meals. The rooms and the shared bathrooms are clean. Free internet is also substantial, and you bcan get a free shuttle for the airport too. To sum up, everything was perfect and we had a very nice stay.

I highly recommend Trotamundos hostel!
