What Lonely Planet, latest edition, (2011) says about us :

**************************************

This brand-new 21-room inn facing the Parque de los Niños is less a hostel than a full-blown hotel equipped with a smattering of dormitory rooms. An interior atrium is draped in plants and a 4th floor bean bag lounge offers a prime opportunity to sip beers while watching the planes take off at the international airport in the distance.

Dormitories are wonderfully uncluttered ( only four people to a room ) and each come with their own bathroom , while the private rooms are graceful, decorated in serene earth tones and equipped with cable TV and double-pane windows.

More expensive junior suites have plasma TV and comfy king-sized bed.

Plus there is wi-fi all over the hotel .

We are the author's choice as the best budget option in Alajuela for plenty of reasons, but just to put it in a few words : We know what you want and that is : good , cheap and great money value and that is what we have waiting for you so book now !!

This hostel left me stranded at an airport and then charged my credit card despite never spending a night there. Before my trip, I made a reservation with them based on their advertisement that they offer a free airport shuttle to and from the San Jose airport. When I called them from the airport around noon to ask them to pick me up, they said they wouldn't and I should take a bus or a taxi. It's really not that far from the airport, so I could have taken a taxi. But when they were so rude on the phone, lied about their service, and never apologized for the inconvenience, I decided to go to another hostel. An hour later, I called Alajuela Backpackers hostel and cancelled my reservation. They said no problem, but in the end they charged my credit card for a night I never spent.
