Our taxi driver brought us to this hostel and the good impression at the beginning was confirmed during our stay. We stayed two nights in a room upstairs with double bed and used the kitchen one evening and every morning. The kitchen has all you need and is average clean. The price of 14 USD for two people, private room with own bathroom was absolutely fair and cheap in comparison to other places we checked out in La Fortuna. However, our room got hot during night as we only had a fan. The mattress was very bad but okay for a short stay.
Warning - Our friends had a room downstairs and had cockroaches in the bathroom, so better check this out in advance!
Moreover, our guide for the Arenal hiking tour was very uncommunicative, drunken all the day and lethargic... Probably you want to book this tour somewhere else at the guide did almost all tours. Price was convincing here too but we would have spend some USD more to have a good guide. However, transportation can be easily arranged via Gringo Petes as it was cheap and worked perfectly fine!
