What was once perhaps a really cool place to go has now turned into a dump. The staff is the rudest i have met anywhere in central america. And everything is incredibly overpriced. E.g. a full load of laundry costs 14 USD. You dont even pay that much at a backpackers in switzerland or norway - and this is bloody central america. Once the place got elected as 'our pick' in lonely planet, quality just went down hard. It's dirty, the showers and toilets are terrible, and the kitchen looks like something out of a horror movie. In addition, unlike in most other costa rican hostels, they dont have computers for guests or potable water. The only cool thing at the place is the end of the world arc that the owner has built in the backyard. Although the titanic in its current condition is more likely to float than that thing. If lonely planet takes itself serious as a travel book, it will delete this place from its next edition.
