“Very clean and comfy but it is also used as a costarican style "Motel"”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

Very centric, comfortable and clean. Staff are nice. Has WIFI, cable TV overhead heated showers.
Just be prepared for some traffic and noises after 10pm, it is used for hook ups by grown ups who still live with their parents (which is very common in Costa Rican culture). There are several ok bars nearby that attract clientele.
So if you are on a limited budget you could get a room with a double bed for $25 and if you only need to stop for a night or two and if you go to bed really early you will be fine...which was our case UNTIL the day we arrived late at night after going to the ER for a twisted ankle getting off the bus from Monteverde, that is when we figured out what was the deal. :)
