There have been renovations and my dorm room had hardwood floors and a very comfortable, large mattress. There was a concierge on site that gave you a map and showed you walking destinations. They have a bar and restaurant on site near the pool which is very convenient and adds to the sociability of the place. All bathrooms were consistently very fresh and well lit, also newly renovated.
Had the restaurant they offered delicious deep-fried food which is a nice touch for a hostel to have, however the smell drafted directly into our window and was very strong, hard to sleep. Difficult to find a solution here and still offer the restaurant, so I can understand.
Cheap & Cheerful. Bit noisy at night, pretty good kitchen and shower facilities, short walk to centre. Very basic rooms but fine for a pit stop.
Convenient and safe location: 5min walk from several restaurants, bars and the National museum of CR; Facilities are very pleasant and well taken care of, including the small pool, which makes it a decent place to hang out; Outdoor kitchen with all tools and amenities
Unfortunately super uncomfortable beds - new set of matresses would be great; Staff not particularly friendly, nor interested in guests (with the exception of the tour desk); Some of the toilets don't have soap (also wasn't refilled)
Good comfy beds, nice outside area, quite fun bar, right in the nightlife spot and close to the downtown area.
No outside alcohol allowed at all. I get you don't want this in the bar/restaurant, but banning it everywhere is drastic.
Common areas were nice, if you go there to meet new people it is a good place.
I only went there to sleep, which was impossible as the place was really noisy all night.the toilets could have been cleaner as well.
