Alajuela Backpackers Boutique Hostel
The lonely planet author’s choice by the airport, they say :
This four- story inn is more hotel than hostel, with private rooms and dorms surrounding a plant-draped atrium. Watch movies on the flat-screen TV in the beanbag lounge, or sip beers on the 4th-floor bar terrace and watch planes take off in the distance. Dorms house only four people per room, and each has its own bathroom. Junior suites have plasma TV and comfy king-sized bed. Credit cards accepted.
