My fiance and I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it! Our double private room was very spacious and clean and there was a great view of Arenal Volcano from our balcony. We enjoyed great food and drinks right next to the pool. The river out back is a great addition to the overall experience, great... More

We came here as a couple after a terrible experience at Arenal Backpackers Resort Hostel. As soon as we walked into reception we were greeted with smiles and a very welcoming atmosphere. The staff are amazing and very accomodating; we were given a very genuine welcome and tour around the hostel and were even given a free upgrade from a... More

Reviewing this hostel is best split into sections as these differed greatly! Service- very friendly, knowledgeable staff who are keen to advise and help you out. Jesse the owner is very sociable and seems to care a lot about you having the best experience in La Fortuna. Alfonso, who works in the front desk, was absolutely lovely and so proud... More

The rooms are very basic and could use some updating, but the staff really tries their best to ensure you enjoy the overall experience of your visit. They offer different specials and no cost activities, and give good advice on the many other outfitters and tours in the area. It was nice to feel that they weren't trying to sell... More

The reviews about Alonso and the rest of the staff are COMPLETELY true. Alonso is the most helpful hostel worker we've met since coming to Costa Rica- not only did he help us plan and get deals on our excursions in la fortuna, but he went above and beyond and helped us plan the rest of our trip that didn't...

In short - rooms are basic but spacious. After long hikes around Arenal you hardly seem to notice this though. We received no towels and the rooms do need some love and attention (e.g. The sink was damaged) - breakfast was freshly made and served by the pool, with great coffee - welcome at reception was always warm and welcoming...

The Moyol lodge was a perfect base for exploring the La Fortuna Area. It is located downtown with less than a 5 minute walk to surrounding restaurants and shops. We were greeted by a welcoming and knowledgeable staff that helped us plan our time from official tours to introducing us to other travelers with similar plans in order to car... More

This is a very convenient hostel. Just a block from the bus station, it was incredibly easy to find. They offer free breakfast daily (cooked by the lovely Maria) a well as free tours for when you run out of cash. I need to give special thanks to the host Alonso. I got incredibly sick with dengue fever while staying... More

The staff here are amazing. Helped with tours, trips, and directions as well as a trip to the doctors, took us to the clinic and stayed and translated for us. Also got us deals on future trips outside of la fortuna on our onward journey. Breakfast is great at the free daily activities were lots of fun and high quality.... More
