-$1refundable key deposit will be requested upon ARRIVAL
-Maximum night stay 31 days.
-Must have a valid passport to become a guest.
-Payment only in cash.
-Airport Shuttle: Some Taxis in Costa Rica are very tricky (especially at the airport and in San Jose) They will try to convince you to take you somewhere else by saying all kinds of stories like The hostel is full or, the road is closed because of a protest! The new trick they have is to tell you they will call the hostel for you( while they are calling a friend or relative ) they will pass you the phone and this person will lie to you by saying the hostel is full !!

DO NOT BELIEVE THEM THEY ARE LYING TO YOU and they just WANT TO RIP YOU OFF BIG TIME !! They will also say the road is going to be closed the next morning so they will have to take you all the way to Alajuela so they can overcharge you for a very expensive ride that is completely false and unnecessary! Things get worse because these taxis work on commission with shady hotels and these hotels pay them a commission to take you there but that commission is going to come out of your pocket because they are going to overcharge you for a shitty room so they can give the taxi driver his commission.

    Alfredo welcomed me with a big smile on his face, shows me around that great place. At this amazing price, nothing beats it. Also, got me a cab half the price others companies has been charging me. I highly recommend this amazing hostels in San José, Costa Rica. Marjo

    Deuxième passage dans cette auberge, deuxième soirée fantastique avec des gens rencontrés sur le rooftop. Ce n'est plus une coïncidence ! Sinon l'auberge est parfaite pour un arrêt à san José entre vos trajets de bus à travers le pays

    Personnel très sympa, navette aéroport pratique. Cependant il n'y avait personne et aucune ambiance, bar fermé et pas de possibilité de se restaurer. Quartier relativement dangereux, ne pas sortir la nuit. Idéal pour se reposer au calme au bord de la piscine.

    I didn't knew that the reception was open 24/7 it should be stated more clearly on your site. The part on the site were it's written that you have one hour after you time arrival or after that your bed can be sold is confusing. Hoping that the comment can help in order to avoid misunderstandings.

    L’auberge est très bien située , à quelques minutes à pieds des terminaux de bus , très bien équipée avec piscine , billard , ping pong et un roof top agréable , mais gros problème sur la propreté , notre chambre était très sale , notre lit plein de poils et de taches , les draps n’avaient pas été changés et c’est malheureusement le plus important à mes yeux ...

    Not the best place in general but I only stayed one night so it was really fine. The staff wasn’t very friendly, they also offered less than what they promised (like coffee e.g.). The airport shuttle and the fact that it’s close to the bus terminal is however pretty convenient.

    Thé owner was quite cold at our arrival and we quite creepy. The kitchen had nothing we couldn’t even cook pasta, and we were not able to boil water. Nice bathrooms and rooms were basic. The pool was grimy and the bar was not open all four nights of our stay
