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

Two friends and I stayed here for three days before one of my friends had to leave for the medical clinic. Alonzo, a true overachiever, walked my friend to the clinic to make sure everything went smoothly. Separately, Maria, the full time cook, makes an incredible complimentary breakfast every morning, among other meals at your request. She is a riot.

My boyfriend and I were a little turned off at first by this place because the room was small, dirty and the shower had no hot water. The water was eventually fixed which helped our stay be more pleasant. Its hard to complain because the staff was all very friendly and they even helped us plan some outings for great... More

Close to the city-centre with restaurants, shops etc. Private, dorm- and bathrooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Hot water in the shower. Breakfast is decent and you get to chose from three menus. Staff is friendly and helpful and can organize tours. They even have a warm pool. Wifi is stable and fast. 24/7 staff at the reception but... More
