We picked this place without looking at alternatives. I'm sure we could have found something nicer. Manager said he gave us a "deal" but after talking to folks I don't think so. Price included breakfast but the staff made us feel unwelcome. They did have security cameras, which I could see we're monitored in the office, so at least I... More

This is a good place to stay if you're looking for an economical room (we normally stay in hostels and the bathroom being in the room was a bonus). However, the staff is not welcoming and do not make you feel at home. I agree with another reviewer who said you feel like you are burdening them any time you... More

Whilst staying in La Fortuna for two nights, we decided to book something in the center of town. This comfortable inn is just of the main street. Great little place to stay. Rooms clean and wonderful air conditioning. Breakfast was also included which was a real bargain, considering the price we paid for two night's. The receptionist was so helpful... More

I had a very pleasant stay at La Choza Inn. It has a great location, very close to downtown but off the main street so it is quiet at night. The room was clean and had a great airflow so my rest was very pleasant. The breakfast in the morning was awesome. Coffee, fresh pineapple and watermelon, toast, PEANUT BUTTER... More

I chose this place because I hears it was cheap and breakfast was good, but was a little nervous about the negative reviews. My friend and I, however, loved it here!! It's a quick walk into town and the woman at the front desk called taxis for us and even offered to take us to the natural hot springs herself!... More

La Choza Inn offers cheap accomodation, considering especially the included breakfast. Dorms and bathroom are big enough, altough the bathroom has a bad smell. Unfortunately the staff was very unfriendly and gave us the feeling of disturbing their private life, as the owner family uses the same kitchen as guests do. When arriving we weren't provided with any information and... More

The stuff was very friendly and everything was clean. The breakfast was nice with toast, eggs, fruits, coffee and juice. it's just a short walk from the busstation and... More

We had a great experience at this hostel. We had booked a private double with en suite and AC. It was clean, had a safe and our only complaint was that the hot water was a little hit and miss. Contrary to other reviews, we found the staff helpful. Breakfast is simple (eggs, fruit and toast) but free and plentiful.... More
