Our group of 16 young people and adults stayed at Hosteria El Arenal for 5 days. We loved it! Especially Maria Mercedes, our smiling young hostess, the daughter of the owners and the chef who always came out to ask us what we wanted for dinner.

Spent one day and night, should have allowed more time. Beautiful setting, helpful staff, nice pool, just a wonderful place to unwind in the jungle. We are not hikers but if you are there are plenty of opportunities. Friends went rafting while we sat and enjoyed just relaxing.

With fabulous views, a great pool, tasty food and very welcoming owners, this hostel gets a big thumbs up! It is a little out of town but only $5 to get into Zamora or 15 mins in your car. Ideal for Podocarpus National Park and exploring the beauty of the area.
