“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Cabinas Jerry is good value. I got a private room for cheap: good size clean sheets bed and mattress is comfy enough. Friendly staff. If you are on a budget this place is good for what you pay. The 1200h checkout time is the latest I've seen in Costa Rica and is helpful if you are on the 1245 bus to San Jose.

Our room was nice and clean, but they did'nt clean everyday. The shower was hot. The kitchen was very dirty and not welcoming. The location was ok, near grocery strore and restaurant. The owner was not very hepful. Not the best place we did in Costa Rica

We arrived by bus and were met by a local guy who wanted to show us Cabinas Jerry. He offered us a good deal of $30 for 3 people for a down stairs room. We just went with it at planned to stay for 2 nights, the duration of our stay in La Fortuna. The room was fine, and backed on to one of the rivers....A bunk bed and a double, hot water shower, tv, free wi-fi and a limited kitchen....All in all the accommodation is fine here. We had a couple of questions to ask the owner, ie the WI-FI code and if there were any more glasses in the kitchen. Our second question (in our limited but acceptable Spanish) was met with shouting and the door to his kitchen being slammed in my mother's face. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE and therefore feel we should pre warn you that THE OWNER IS AGGRESSIVE. We were informed by our tour guy that the owner is frustrated that he can not properly communicate with his guests.
This is a mixed review the room was fine and good value, but this guy should not be in hospitality!

Room Tip: dont stay here

The Hotel is okay. I stayed in one of large Top-Floor rooms, balcony with Volcano-View, TV, Aircon for surcharge, safe (that was broken at the time). It was clean, the matrace was good quality, clean sheets. In total though the Hotel seemed a bit neglected. The communal kitchen was very dirty und very poorly ecquipted. Cooking is not really possible. I would still reccomend the hotel, as for the price you can hardly ask for more.

Room Tip: Only the topfloor rooms have a view of the volcano

There's a kitchen, tv, good proximity

You're getting a bit more than what you're paying in this case.

And the owners are nice and funny.

My husband and I stayed here as there was no availability anywhere else. It was meant to be for a quick visit to Volcan Poas but ended up staying longer as we got stuck during the easter weekend. We payed 10us for a double room with a shared bathroom. We shared the bathroom with 2 other rooms which wasnt too bad. There was no toilet seat, but this seems quite usual in latin america! The bathroom sink also kept leaking and he was getting annoyed at us all saying we werent allowed to run the water for more than 5 seconds!! He also got really annoyed at another couple who booked a volcano tour through someone other than him! We did the same but he didnt find out at the driver knew of his bad temper so dropped us off further down the road to save us the hassle from the owner incase he seen. The driver warned us he has got violent with a guest in the past. He actually also got annoyed at us for knocking on his door to give him the room key back rather than using the doorbell - which looked like a lightswitch!

Other than this, the room was ok. It has a fan but didnt really work properly. There were no insects in the room which was a nice change. We were on the ground floor and the curtain was a bit seethrough for our liking!

There was also the use of a kitchen but this was one of the worst kitchens we seen on our travels. It was so old, dirty and full of insects we didnt even cook here, just used the fridge!

I wouldnt recommend this hotel at all.
