Stayed at the hotel for one night. Helpful and nice staff, clean and simple room. AC worked, but made some noise. Some noise from neighboring rooms. It is by no means a fancy place but it is a great option who wants a cheap room. Hot water in the shower and nice wifi connection is also a plus!

We stayed two nights in El Volcano. The rroms are basic but compared to what you find for a comparable price there is nothing to complain about. A big plus for the host. He was very friendly hand helpful. Others in town reproted about nasty hosts with the only intention to talk you into tours. Not at this place. The... More

This place is ok to stay. It was musty. The attendant wasn’t there when I arrived but did explain he was called away on an emergency. It seemed to me no staff that stayed there overnight. I have to say as a woman travelling solo, this is the only place in Costa Rica I did not feel secure. There was... More

The hostel is in the center of the city. The building is simple and the room are quite little and without Windows which you can open, so the temperature is higher than outside. Anyway the rooms are provided of air conditioning and moreover are cleaned every days. The owner is really friendly and available to help you to organise your... More

Hosts were friendly, location is great. Rooms are somewhat closed without ventilation. Free wi-fi is great. There is a common area with a microwave, refrigerator and a table, disposable glasses, no cutlery, just barely enough.I stayed at room 7. There are 4 rooms and they are almost at the entrance of the hotel. The sound of the air conditioned of... More

For $35 bucks a night this is hard to beat. Was surprised at the size and the cleanliness, definitely exceeded my expectations. Location is hard to beat, you're just out side "town" and in walking distance of everything. The perfect place to come back to after a day of adventures around La Fortuna.

For $35.00/night, this place is a steal! With aircon and wifi included, this is a great place to rest your head at night while you explore all that La Fortuna has to offer. They have a little kitchenette with a microwave and a fridge if you have any food you'd like to preserve. You can walk anywhere in the town... More

Location is the half a block from the park. The rooms have doors outside. The rooms are clean. Hot water, internet and AC! Nothing super special here but its secure and definitely worth $35/night. The owner is super nice. I would go back.

This is an okay place. My visit started off on the wrong foot. No one was there when I arrived, I waited 20 minutes or longer. Before a fellow showed up. He went off on me when I mentioned my discomfort- totally the wrong response, I'm sorry, an apology would have gone a long way with me. He left, there... More
