The hostel and the pool are really nice, the dormitory too. The tents are nice but too close to each other. It feels in a japanese city box where there is no0 space between people.
the pool is great and drinking in the pool is fantastic, however the band they give you fot "security" purposes is a big turn off. I don't want to be wearing a band to move around all over arenal and be labeled as "allowed to enter Arenal Backpackers.
They also change dollars at a rate of 550 collones, which for me is bad taste.
A part of these two things and the restricted space among the tents, nice place... but i could not give more starts, since these small things are important for me.
