Stayed here for 3 nights.
My room was beside the bar and the music was incredibly loud.
One of the evenings i was watching tv in my room and couldn't even hear it over the music.
The rooms have lovely big windows but as there are no blinds, i had to keep the curtains closed all the time to have some privacy, making the room quite dark.
I asked at the reception for bus times to san Jose. All she told me was that they had a shuttle bus available for $45 which is very expensive compared to about $12 on local buses. She just tried to sell me this and gave me no information on the public transport.
This is the most expensive hostel i've stayed in in Costa Rica at $44 per night for a single room.
Although the room was fine, nothing special, and the location was good, I wouldn't stay here again.
