We arrived in La Fortuna with our fingers crossed that we would be able to snag a hostel saying as we couldn't get into the neighboring hostel where our friends were staying and low and behold, Hotel La Amistad came to the rescue! For an expensive town, it was a great budget hostel for my traveling buddy and I. The rooms were cleaned every day by the sweetest ladies. We stayed two or three days and it wasn't during the weekend so the town was prettyyyyy dead.... But that's alright because we were really only there for one thing, to see the volcano! We had some INCREDIBLE views of the volcano right from the door of our room too which was awesome. The restaurant across the street is quite pricey if you're budget traveling like we were but it was a nice little treat; great service, drinks, and food though!! Johnny was absolutely incredible and a wonderful resource of info about the town. We had some great just little chats with him. However, we witnessed and personally had some not so great encounters with the other owner and staff members... But thank goodness for Johnny. You rock man! Overall, the hostel was a great place to just hangout, relax, sleep, cook meals, and best of all, it was affordable!
