Never come here again and we are frequent travellers to wonderful Costa Rica. Almost broke a tooth on some uncooked rice, not what you expect is you are paying $40us for a meal. Not a forgiving lot, not even an apology.

Considering this is one of the cheapest options for doubles in La Fortuna, I cannot see where the low score comes from. We stayed here for two nights, and although the place could use some extra cleaning (but we did not spot any insects..), the owners are extremely friendly and helpful, and the place even has a great swimming pool!...

That was our first hostel in Costa Rica, and in entire life - we are used to hotels, so this experience was a bit disappointing. The rooms have overall a dirty feeling to them. The sheets felt dirty, we weren't sure, but we woke up with itches on our feet, the bathroom was painted in darker colors, and the light... More

Let's start with the pros, it's right in the center of town. It was great to be able to leave the car parked for a couple of days and walk around the town, close to restaurants and the central park. Breakfast is included and there is a restaurant available for lunch and dinner as well. The room is cheap compared... More

I enjoyed my experience at hotel Luigi as it did it's job. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and they did have AC. But we were told we had hot water and it was definitely not hot, slightly colder than luke warm I would say. We then told the office about it and they said they had to... More

This was by far the worst place i have ever stayed. There were spiders and cockaroches in the bathroom and room. The shower shot out into the floor of the bathroom and we might as well have slept on the mattress because the sheets were stained, had hair and were thinner than a piece of paper. We tried to leave... More

Place was cheap 15$ per person. Views were phenomenal. Customer service was poor. place is located in the middle of town. .and there is a bar/club right next door that stays open past all other places(we learned of this the following day). Therefore, didn't get much sleep...it was loud and we heard gunshots being fired...it was the worst feeling and... More

First room they gave us the sink dumped directly onto the bathroom floor, the mold was so thick in the room it was unbearable. In the second room the mold was even worse, had to keep opening the door to get breathable air in there. Not to mention cockroaches EVERYWHERE!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!!

Luigis is centrally located in La Fortuna on the main road. It is noisy at night because of the traffic. Our room was large but not really clean. We found some hairs on the floor and inside the bathroom. Old beds and walls need to be painted. Good for one or two nights not more.
