The rooms were so damp out dry clothes became wet. We could hear the cars...More
Standard backpackers but with an awesome and well-priced restaurant that is open LATE. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable and provided valuable advice for the Arenal area. They seemed to have cheaper tour prices than online so I booked a rafting tour through the...More
Good food, breakfast and nicely priced drinks served by nice kitchen staff.

I heard the shuttle was $50, but stayed in San Jose two days and took bus to backpackers. The La Fortuna Station was 2.5 hours from San Jose 7-10 station (at the corner of 7th and 10th avenue), I think it was $14 dollars. Could have been less. Google terminal7-10 for the schedule. Arneal Backpackers is 100 meters west on the main road from the station.
