It is incredibly cheap for Costa Rican standards, but it comes with a price. The owner seemed nice at first, he talks a lot and very energetically. But after I checked out a little later than the checkout time, I had to pay for an extra night. I can understand that, but still a disappointment. At one point the cleaning...

The hostel is very nice, and we only paid 14 dollars per night for a private room, I think it's ultimately the most cheap place in town. But the owner Pete is a crazy person, he seriously needs help.

All in all, our experience at Gringo Pete's Too was okay. There was a cockroach in our room, which we didn't appreciate. The kitchen was not well equipped: We couldn't find any mugs (only plastic cups), the plates-situation was similar (all plastic). The major reason for feeling unwell in the kitchen were ants. I'm not talking about some ants passing...
