Nice swimming pool, nice beds&dorms, Good location although not safe at night. Good facilities. Bad service, just not personal and strictly business, bad kitchen; food isn't well cooked no nice ingredients for the plates, no vibe by employees, no bar. Wouldn't recommend it, but it's not bad.

First of all, the whole place looks like a prison. Really, I might have preferred a prison.
The staff is terrible, and not helpful at all! Never eat at the restaurant. We were a group of eleven people, and had to wait 1,5 hours before the last person got their order. The food was not that good either.
The staff also informed us wrong about the taxi prices, and tried to convince us that the shuttle from the hostel was our cheapest choice, and they are generally really unwelcoming.
In the night it was extremely cold, Even though we did not turn on our fan.
Never going back to this hostel.

Okey so i am going to separate this is three.

1. The sheets at the hostel were not clean.
2. The bar/restaurant on top of the hostel is terrible. The service is really awfull, and you have to wait a really long time for the food. ( 1 hour and 20.) The waiter was really rude and angry towards the guests. It was really uncomfertable. The worst place i have ever dined.
3. The service at the hostel was okey, but they did not tell us the truth really. They told us the wrong priced for taxi, just to get us to USE their shuttle. To everyone = taxi to the AirPort (not ordered through the hostel is cheaper.) Also, they would not let us keep our luggage there after check out for 3 hours without paying.

I will not return ever

Airport pickup turned into a mess which eventually got sorted out. We had to wait almost 3 hours from being outside the airport to getting to the hostel. The email they send you re: instructions for catching the airport shuttle ended up not applying to us that night, so we actually had to take a taxi and the hostel payed the driver... Kind of strange. Room was average, sheets were clean, showers were hot, pool water quite cold (although quite cold in San Jose that evening). Only worth staying at for the bus station being so close, otherwise just stay in Alajuela if you are coming to/from the airport.

I don't know where to begin! I have been there because I had a meeting close by and a flight the next day. They put crazy night club music so so loud that your room is like a night club. All their behavior are just coming out of a movie hahaha It's just unbelievable. Even if they give you a free night don't stay there there is plenty of hostel in San Jose. You will quickly understand why the hostel is empty.
For the staff: guys, find a manager for God sake because everything is wrong
