The hostal itself was on the whole OK. We stayed in the dorm US$6 each), as they were otherwise full. The dorm was a bit smelly (not thee fault of the hostal, more the clients!), but the bathroom wasn't very nice. The communal area was OK, but somehow did not match up to the Tortugua hostal.
Our biggest issue was the bed bugs. I know bed bugs can happen to any hostal, but I think that their response wasn't great. The day before we got there, a girl told the staff she thought she had bed bugs, but the staff looked at her bites and said "no, they don;t look like bed bug bites". The night we were there, she got savaged by them, and we saw at least 2 crawl across her bed in the daylight. Another girl in another bed killed one more in her bed. I later found 2 more in my bag (although I didn't get bitten). The sad thing is that if the hostal had actuall checked the girls' bed when she told them about being bitten, they could have done something about it, as the place was clearly crawling with them.
