A friend recommended this hostel while in Arenal. It is a nice clean place to stay. We were there for 4 days and 3 nights. It is a small cozy hotel. We stayed in the private rooms: very spacious, clean and comfortable, One of the beds needed a new mattress as we could feel the springs but the other bed was perfect. Our room faced the main street so it was very noisy in the morning with the cars, motorcycles and trucks coming through town.
The breakfast buffet and dinner specials were ok but a little pricey for what they were.
The pool and bar were a good place to hang out after the tours or for a day of rest. The tours guide (Jungle man) was very helpful and attentive with the scheduling of the tours and helping as sort things out after we missed one tour.
