Liked: The staff seemed very well organized, friendly and the whole check-in and out process was very quick and easy. It was a great set-up, the location, convenience of an on site food/ bar etc. The other very positive thing I want to mention is that they had a taxi waiting outside to drive me to the airport for a very early flight. Huge relief!

Disliked: I didn't feel as though is was very easy to find. Often times I have found the hostels will have large signs. Very helpful when you are tired and in an unfamiliar area. This hostel I was standing right in front of it and was not sure that I was at the right place.

Liked: Roof top bar

Disliked: Had a room overlooking the road - were awake from 0400 with car and horn noise. Bathroom was like a swimming pool after a shower - no drain or towel for the floor. Room 25 - the door and frame had been forced in the past and weren't entirely secure!

Liked: It's Close to The AirPort so it's a good stop when you arrive late and ideal if your flying out of costa rica. The bathrooms are big and The showers are hot. Buses to San Jose leave around the corner.

Liked: How it is built with the windows for fresh air, Having somewhere to eat and drink on the 4th floor where the staff made me feel very welcome. The reception is spacious so plenty of room for groups arriving and departing. The staff are so helpful also offering all the information as if it was the the first time they weer telling you their discovery of their beautiful country.

Disliked: A larger security box would not take up too much space the little ones are useless if one is carrying a laptop. In Madrid i could put my 10kq suit case in a locker in my bed room which was wonderful.
