        We've stayed in multiple hostels (as cheap as possible) in Costa Rica and compared to the others, this double room with private bath for only 8 dollars each is totally worth it! It is clean, calm and there is a kitchen; everything we needed.

        This is an OK place for budget backpackers. I got a bed in dorm room for 6$, which is suprisingly cheap for Costa Rica. Pete is a bit of a character with his remarks, but overall I had a good experience.
