Definitely going back!
Staff was so warm, inviting and friendly. It felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Only a block away from the beach and they gave us beach towels and let us use the wooden wakeboard free of charge. My favorite part was how amazing the food and drink was. The Argentinean couple who work in the bar and kitchen were AMAZING. Best drinks in CR for sure.

Very good 8,0
Good location but be prepared for noise at night
Stayed for one night with our two grown up children. The room was basic but nice. At night there was quite a lot of noise from the streets but the location is very close to the beach. Cute hotel with nice breakfast and friendly staff.

Amazing stay
Great location in the center of everything from beach, shopping and restaurants. Tastefully decorated wonderful all around feel. The parking was a little tight, but we ended up parking on the street. Love this place and would return.
