Spent 4 nights here while touring the Corcovado area. The owners Lisette and Marta are a delight to talk with. Quiet location despite being in town, with a pretty garden area. I had a larger room with super new AC which kept me comfortable at all times.

Doña Lidiet is a wonderful person and one of the first persons opening a hostel in town. She knows everyone and gives good advices. The rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable. There is also a beautiful garden. The price/value is really good!

Friendly owner, clean rooms (with A/C or a fan), lovely garden with a sitting area, reasonable prices. Unfortunately no kitchen. Security guard at night. Good location, in the town centre but it doesn't get to noisy, so you will get a good night sleep.

we tried to book online but we did not manage so we just went directly there at arrival in Puerto Jimenez. The only room with aircon still available had 2 beds (we were 3) but they brought an extra bed in the room. I don't remember how much we paid (online the price was 55$/triple room). The room was clean...

I stay here every time when I am in Puerto Jimenez. The rooms are clean. The staffs are friendly and helpful. It is in the city and close to restaurants and supermarkets. The hotel has a secured wifi, which was fast. The price is reasonable. We saw macaws in the garden.

I stayed here at the end of low season (first week of November) therefore I paid only 15K colones (less than $30) for one night and for that price, you get a good room. Two single size beds, A/C, private bathroom, quiet. Don't expect anything extra ordinary. It's a decent place and you get good value out of your money....

We rolled into town with no reservations and this hotel suited our needs perfectly. The secure parking was very convenient and the garden/courtyard was a nice touch. The room was clean and spacious. We spoke very little Spanish and the staff, who spoke little English, were very welcoming and accommodating. The hotel is very conveniently located in Puerto Jimenez, walking...

Clean rooms and baths, nice and clean beds, friendly staff and they keep your bags while you go into the park. No breakfast, but there are places that open at 4:00 AM for that. Has a beautiful garden with a table under a charming roof where you can eat. It's a great option!

We stood there for about a week and we loved that place. It has a beautifull garden and very nice, spacious and clean rooms. The owner is very friendly and tries to fullfill all your needs. They have gooses in the back, which are very noisy, especially in the early morning:-)

I spent three nights in a room with AC, no TV, private bath and two single beds. There was a shelf-clothes rack unit and benches to sit on outside, facing the garden and parking area. There was also a thatch roof shelter with a long table and benches in the garden. Parking is convenient and secure with a gate closed...
