What Lonely Planet, latest edition, (2011) says about us :
This brand-new 21-room inn facing the Parque de los Niños is less a hostel than a full-blown hotel equipped with a smattering of dormitory rooms. An interior atrium is draped in plants and a 4th floor bean bag lounge offers a prime opportunity to sip beers while watching the planes take off at the international airport in the distance.

Dormitories are wonderfully uncluttered ( only four people to a room ) and each come with their own bathroom , while the private rooms are graceful, decorated in serene earth tones and equipped with cable TV and double-pane windows.

More expensive junior suites have plasma TV and comfy king-sized bed.
Plus there is wi-fi all over the hotel .

We are the author's choice as the best budget option in Alajuela for plenty of reasons, but just to put it in a few words : We know what you want and that is : good , cheap and great money value and that is what we have waiting for you so book now !!

Important note: We have to check credit card info first in order to guarantee booking. If there is any issue we will contact you in order to get right credit card details Hausregeln anzeigen

    If you just want to have a stay before or after your flight, it’s perfect as it’s close and offers shuttle to the airport. Otherwise I wouldn’t stay there. But nice rooftop with good pizza (even vegan:))

    Ich habe mir ein Zimmer in einem extra Frauen Zimmer gebucht und mitten in der Nacht bin ich wach geworden weil ein Mann kam der sich eingebucht hat. Fand ich überhaupt nicht in Ordnung! Außerdem keine besonders schöne Atmosphäre , nicht weiter zu empfehlen, insbesondere für allein reisende Frauen.

    Ziemlich abgeranztes Hotel/Hostel. Unbequeme Betten, dreckiges Bad. Ok wenn man eine Nacht hier schläft und den gratis Flughafen Shuttle nutzt, für low Budget Reisen. Würde es ansonsten nicht empfehlen.

    The staff was extremly unfriendly and not helpful at all! My phone got lost im the taxi just 3min before I got to the hostel and he didn't want to help me at all. They don't welcome you or ask you how your stay was, at the checkout not even a thank you or goodbye. Never experienced such an unfriendly hostel before and I definitely don't recommend to go there. The rooms are ok, very basic and the location is ok too. Nevertheless I would recommend to book a B&B or Airbnb.

    Worst hostel i've ever stayed in. ONLY for transiting to the airport. I had to change my bed laundry by my own because the stuff didnt want to do it. (Someone puked or what ever on that bed). Extremly dirty and staff doesn't care at all. Dont go there expect you have to transit.
