“Worth a stay, great staff, just bring earplugs”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

The very best part of this hotel is the staff-they were AWESOME. Super helpful and accommodating, they did a great job of making our Arenal trip great for us and our kids by making family friendly recommendations and giving us inside info to better priced or free ways to see the area. Room was clean, bathroom was great, wifi was good too. Nice to have a fridge in the room. They delivered full breakfast to our rooms. For $60 for a family of 4, this was a really great value. Great view of the volcano too!

Like any "in town" place, I recommend bringing ear plugs-that's always the case. There is road noise and the occasional rooster.

Room Tip: Talk to Ulises or Jessica to help you out.

Hostel Jireh is located in the heart of La Fortuna. I stayed here just a few weeks ago and had a great experience! Not only is the location super central but you have fun activities at your fingertips including: hot springs, hikes, breath taking views of the volcano, horseback riding and fun adventures near by. The safe feel at the hostel was just what I needed. Everyone was unbelievably friendly, welcoming and warm. I felt very safe at Jireh and loved that, especially as Ulises and everyone on board was extremely helpful and welcoming. Everyone went out of their way to make you feel comfortable and have the most enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone visiting La Fortuna! Enjoy your time!

I would highly recommend this hotel. We stayed in 4 different hotels throughout our trip in CR and this was by far our favorite. The room wasn't huge, but very clean with a great bathroom. In addition to the rooms, the staff was awesome! As soon as we walked in the door they were very welcoming and answered any questions we had with tons of recommendations on things to do. Breakfast was complimentary and they also had free wifi. I think we paid $25 a person, to me that's great!!

Carlos and Jackie were great...helpful when the ac didn't work, accommodating by giving us another room that was even nicer with an awesome view of the volcano. The location is perfect, rooms were clean, and staff was friendly. Tasty breakfast included.

Room Tip: Get a room on the third floor with a view of the volcano.

We went there for just one night.. First we did the reservation by phone, and once we were there they told me they were full! And we had already paid half and gotten a confirmation! After a while they gave us the room... It was ok, nothing luxurious (not that we expected it) nor beautiful at sight at all .. And the breakfast was included... Only 2 options.. The pool was dirty and there are no words to describe the smell and the mess in the bathrooms!!! Specially the one that was public! .. Didnt enjoy the experience at all.. I expected much more since it's a hotel in Fortuna downtown..

Stayed two nights at the Arenal Jireh in May. Great inexpensive place to crash. The staff were wonderful, the breakfast burrito is the best. The chef is a walking comedian. I would stay again. In Arenal you only need a place to crash after zipling, rafting, & jumping into waterfalls. No need to pay $400 a night to stay at Tabacon. $45 rooms at Jireh is where it's at!! They have free parking and overnight security.

Room Tip: Just take whatever room they give you, if your there to lay up & sleep around in Costa Rica you...

The setting, the scenery from our balcony, the view of the Volcano, the hotel itself. The layout of the rooms.The friendly and professional staff, make us a great stay.
The hotel is very close to all our needs, and we can travel just around all the beautiful places closed to the volcano.
