Tolles Anwesen etwas außerhalb der Ortsmitte mit herrlichem Blick auf den Arenal, kleinem Swimmingpool und ausgezeichnetem Frühstück. Top Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis im Landesvergleich!

Die Zimmer waren geräumig und mit Klimaanlage ausgestattet, sehr gut. Das Frühstück war recht mager und könnte zumindest Brötchen, Marmelade und Käse enthalten. Für Hostelgäste müsste ein Schuttle ins Zentrum eingerichtet werden. Zufuß fast zu weit 5km und Busverbindung sehr schlecht.

This hostel/hotel is outside of town but has very nice and big rooms. The stuff was very courteous over the phone and made sure to be there on our late arrival. Room and bathroom were clean, with AC and ceiling fan. Our room had volcano view (when no foggy!), though was facing the main road that starts getting very busy and loud early morning (around 6am). The breakfast was huge and delicious. You can park the car inside the facilities. Very good overall.

There is no Hostel International branding anywhere except a mousepad. This is basically a cheap hotel on the outskirts of town. Wouldn't stay here unless you had a vehicle. Staff is super friendly though! Free breakfast as well.
