Hi! you can send them an email to reservations @ inandbasic . com the owner's name is Paula and she will be very pleased to help you out. The shuttle to the hostal is really safe, the driver speak fair english (and spanish obviusly) and they charge $25 wich is a very rasonable price for the service.
Bye and have a good time in Costa Rica!
