The hostel is ridiculously creepy - when rooms are empty they look like something from paranormal activity, so old fashioned. It's super eerie throughout the whole hostel.
We were only staying in Costa Rica one night and had to suffer the horrendous experience of San Jose, so we tried to find a remotely okay hostel to relieve the experience a little. this is not the place. We changed USD currency to local Costa Rica currency especially to pay for this hostel, they ended up refusing to accept their own local currency - accepting only USD instead. When we told them this was ridiculous, the staff got super rude and unhelpful.
Horrendous horrendous horrendous train goes past the windows every 5-10 mins and toots an unbelievably loud horn every time into the early hours of the morning. Horrific.
Arrived at 7pm, left as early as we could at 4am. Enough said.
