I really liked the double room we'd booked - comfy bed, nice balcony with a good view of Arenal, clean and spacious. Our room was right on the end of the block so we were next to trees, so we could watch birds from bed....More
We stayed at this place for 2 nights, in tents. There was some confusion upon check-in but was quickly resolved. Staff was friendly and helpful with any questions that we had. There was so much to do at this place if you were just wanting...More
I like the sitting area in the hostel, it’s a great place to sit back with a beer and meet fellow travelers. The front desk was helpful in booking our excursions and the food/drinks are cheap. We had a private room with an ensuite bathroom,...More
