We stayed at Sol Y Mar for 3 nights. The location is pretty good, but is a long walk to the beach and main restaurant area, although it is all downhill. There is a public bus which is a cheap easy way to get back to the top of the hill and the hostel.
The rooms were pretty basic with an older mattress and minimal furniture. The bathrooms needed some repair and weren't the cleaniest. We also had to provide our own toilet paper. That being said, it wasn't awful. The beds were clean and no bugs in the rooms. Our first room had a fan which was perfect and the second room we stayed in (they moved us to do some repairs to a dripping tap) had air conditioning but it was either on high or off... No happy medium.
Breakfast was provided, and the owner was very friendly and helpful with things to do and see.
We took a public bus to Dominical one day which was a highlight of Costa rica.
Our stay here was good. Not the best, but also not the worst. A happy medium and good for the price.More
