Great stay
This was our last stop on a week long trip and couldn’t have had a better experience. The staff was amazing helping us with finding good restaurants to eat at as well as activities to do in Samara. The rooms were clean and the AC was an added bonus. The facility felt safe and the restaurant below was a great place to eat at.

This was a lovely property for a great price. We really enjoyed having a private room and bathroom with AC (it gets very hot and humid) for three people for a very reasonable price, while having the option to use kitchen and have/make your own food, and interact with other people in common spaces. Best of both worlds for hotel and hostel style. The staff were so friendly and attentive, and the spaces were very clean. It is also in a great location, would highly recommend!

The best place in Samara :)
Amazing! Exactly what I was looking for! I booked for the weekend and keep extending because everything has been so lovely I don't want to leave. Super clean, safe, and affordable and the kindest Ticos taking care of you during your stay. I can't say enough good things about Annie and Michelle. They really work to make you feel at home and it shows. I felt at ease the second I walked in :).
