First a note: this is a budget hotel - we had probably the best room in the place and it was $35 (in high season).
That said, this place was great. The rooms are fairly plain but clean and the staff was friendly, helpful, and laid back.
The best part about the place, aside from the value, is the views of Arenal. Ask for Room 27 or Room 33 - both of these rooms have balconies that have views of Arenal, and at night you can see the lava flows (assuming that you're there the 5% of the time it's NOT cloudy).
If you can't get either of those two rooms, then I think the place is probably more or less a non-descript but good value.
Try to email them early, as those two rooms are often booked far in advance especially during high season.
