We stayed at the PoSada Inn for two nights at the beginning of our trip across Costa Rica. We didn't communicate much with the owners since there was a language barrier, however they were fantastic hosts. The inn is located just a few hundred metres from the heart of La Fortuna, which made it a very conveniently located place to... More

Posada Inn is pretty standard as far as basic hostel accommodations, but there are a few things that made this place great. The location is two-ish blocks away from the town center, so everything is close but the hostel is still quiet at night. And there's a cute little outdoor covered kitchen and seating area. No breakfast, but free wifi... More

If you're looking for a cheap hostel, this is your place. The price is unbeatable. However, you certainly get what you pay for. When we arrived, there was a dead cockroach on the floor. One of the bed frames was being eaten by termites, as evidenced by the pile of wood dust on the floor. The other bed was full... More

First, the positives: The owner was very friendly and provided great advice for affordable things to do in La Fortuna. Also, the hotel was very very cheap, which is exactly what we were looking for. The price made up for all of the negatives, but I could see how other travelers' priorities might not match up with my "budget first,... More

My friend and I stayed here for several nights while exploring the area around Volcán Arenal. The owner (Derek/Derrick) was very helpful, and the rates were very inexpensive. The room was simple but more than adequate for what we paid. As someone else mentioned, Derek knows a wildlife tour guide (his name is Giovanni), and we decided to accept the... More

The rooms are simple yet very clean. You have everything you need. The place is very well maintained and safe. Derrick (the owner) was so helpful and kind. He went well out of his way to ensure we were able to enjoy our time in Fortuna. He hooked us up with an impressive night hike with a local to see... More

The rooms are simple and clean. Quite a good location for wandering La Fortuna and a great deal in order to save money for the activities on and around the volcano. The owners were really pleasant and helpful.

Derek is an absolute legend, our friend had walked in enquiring about free rooms, they were full so Derek let us use the spare rooms at the front of his house. The backyard is huge and the communal kitchen has everything you need. A mini detour in terms of our travel plans but Derek made it for sure! Only thing... More

The owner Derrick is very helpful and a great guy, so is his son! They helped us with contacting guides and even drove my sister to the doctor when she got sick at night. A perfect budget hotel. Nice rooms, just in the center. I would stay there again.

We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting many attractions near la fortuna and volcano Arenal. This place is perfect, quiet yet close to the center of la fortuna. Rooms are very basic, with a hot shower. Outside there is a common kitchen area which is great to make breakfast. At the moment it's only shared by 4 rooms. The... More
