“bad stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

we stayed there for one night after reading the other reviews on tripadvisor. but when we arrived there, we could not believe our eyes. first, it was a little bit outside la fortuna. we were the only ones staying there and they were renewing the house. there was some dirt on the bed and soaps in the shower from i don't now how many visitors before us. we never had as many moskitos around as in that room. also a cockroach visited us during the night. in the morning it was extremely loud because of the neighbours. in the beginning wifi didn't have signal, afterwards there was signal but i couldn't download or actualize anything. we changed the hostel afterwards and had a great stay in the middle of la fortuna for the same price. we really do not recommend that hostel!

This family run family friendly hostel is our favorite place to stay when we travel to La Fortuna. My family and I travel there at least once a year and stay there for the duration of our trip. It is walking distance to the center of town, restaurants, shops, and everything necessary. We enjoy the friendly staff who is very informative about tours and all you'll need to know. The family will accomodate a full typical breakfast upon request. There is a secure gated entry, as well as a secure gated parking area. All the rooms are clean and spacious. The price is always right and you truly get an authentic Costa Rican experience...

I have stayed many times at this place for business and family trips and I've had a good experience every time. The rooms are always clean, the staff is courteous and friendly and the price is very good for those who search basic but clean accommodations like me. The location of hostel Rolopz is very convenient because is at walking distance to downtown restaurants, shops, grocery stores and some of the Arenal Volcano attractions (like La Fortuna Waterfall). Also, there is a very good view of the volcano from the front side of the hotel.
