“pretty decent; except for the odd condom under your pillow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2011

This hostel was pretty clean and well kept; a nice communal kitchen for example and a little lounge area with tv and balcony and pretty fast internet on the pc's in the hallway (free). Not supercheap but we stayed here for one night only so it was okay. We saw lots of people in the square, but mostly children, nothing threatening. off course walkin there in the middle of the night could be risky, just as in about any urban area in CR though i never felt uncomfortable
only 5 min to the airport from here
good place to stay on your first or last night in CR

only bad thing was the condom i think it doesnt happen regularly, for the rest it was very clean :)

I was staying at hotel Cala Inn before meeting up with a group I was leading (part of the Caribbean Experience I direct (http://www.costaribbean.com) , and Mario and his partner made sure I felt at home: Clean rooms, a nice lounge, and the staff was informative about letting me know about where to go to eat around Alajuela- a charming town. Breakfast was great, and the price is affordable! It is located in a central place, 2 blocks from the central plaza. The owner also helped me get a driver to take me and my friend to Volcan Poas.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to CR which began and ended with a pleasant stay at Cala Inn. Their rooms are very clean, with comfortable beds. The staff is outstanding at making one feel welcome. Your morning breakfast is freshly prepared while you wait, drinking delicious Costa Rican coffee. They are helpful with tours, phone calls, taxis, and finding a good restaurant. Kudos for Cala Inn!
