"My friend and I stayed one night before heading to the airport the next day. It was easy to find when arriving by bus and the staff were helpful. We were happy to find a large room on the 5th floor with couches, netflix, pool table and pingpong. The only downside was the lack of A/C in the room. We stayed in a dorm with only a window to the hall and no ventilation so the air was very stale and hot. The fan helped a bit. We only stayed one night but seemed like a good location. Overall, would recommend!"

"The food was absolutely terrible, one of the worst restaurants I've been in CR, and I've been to plenty. 8000 colones for a "casado" that was mediocre, when you can pay 3000 in a small restaurant anywhere and get much better quality. The bathroom smelt of urine, and the room was not well cleaned. I am not coming back, that's for sure."

"This is a phenomenal hotel with great friendly and helpful staff. Tight security made the hotel feel very safe. The room was spotless, as was the rest of the hotel. There is a nice restaurant on the first floor. The price was incredible and even included breakfast, which was always hot and delicious. Also had free wifi, which was very helpful as my phone didn't work at all in this country! The location is great, on a bus line to and from the airport in Alajuela and walking distance from downtown and El Mercado Central. I highly recommend this hotel for a great comfortable place to stay on a budget! Este es un hotel fenomenal con un personal amable y servicial. Seguridad estricta hizo que el hotel sentir muy seguro. La habitación estaba inmaculada, al igual que el resto del hotel. Hay un buen restaurante en el primer piso. El precio era increíble con desayuno  incluido , que siempre estaba caliente y delicioso. También había WiFi gratis, lo cual fue muy útil ya que mi teléfono no funcionaba para nada en este país! La ubicación es conveniente, en una línea de autobús desde y hacia el aeropuerto de Alajuela, a poca distancia del centro de la ciudad y El Mercado Central. Yo recomiendo sumamente este hotel para un gran lugar cómodo para alojarse en un presupuesto!"
