I think they are way better places in la Fortuna. Its unbearable to always have all the staff (receptionist, cleaner) flirting with us all the time.thats creepy. The dormitory is not that good (the aircon is too noisy) and there is no place outside to hang out or just relax. when we left, we were late for the check-out and... More

Rooms and kitchen were clean, no window and no air conditioning in my room. Hot water was not hot. Somewhat a good value but it could be a bit better. It's quiet and you can sleep very well there. If I ever go back i will ask for another room!

The hostel is in a quiet location. Feels more like a hotel as there is no atmosphere. The breakfast was a nice surprise. Staff only spoke to me when o was handing money over for something. Beds were comfortable enough.

The actual hostel/hotel is fine, we were upgraded to a private room for no charge because they were full (despite booking on hostelworld). Most of the staff were lovely apart from the manager whose people skills aren't great. Breakfast was ok. Also beware of paying a deposit on a hostel website as you will not get this taken off of...

The p.p.r. is acceptable, you get what you pay for. The rooms are affordable, the beds comfy and clean. Unfortunatley the bathrooms aren't and my pillow smelled weird, moist. The breakfast includes toasts and jam. The staff was super helpful and friendly. Big plus, they have shuttles to the "free" hotsprings (no entry fee required) for 5 USD pp. All... More

STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOSTEL. I was there 2 nights and then moved to Arenal Backpackers. 3 out of the 5 people in my dorm had money or items stolen. Probably because there are NO LOCKS ON THE DOORS OR ANY SECURITY OF ANY KIND. You could walk off the street and straight into a dorm room without encountering a... More
