The owner of this hostel, Herman was a super friendly Tico. He helped us plan the guides that we wanted to do during our stay in Arenal. He went as much as calling up all the booking companies to confirm our reservation for a canopy tour. He also saved us 10$ because we were able to get a student discount with him. He also paid for our taxi into town for dinner the first night of our stay. Herman also told us about a hot spot in La Fortuna that had hot springs without an admission fee. Be sure to ask him about that. Both me and my friend were very grateful for the service he provided us with. The rate also included breakfast. Herman and his wife actually cooked the breakfast for us. Suffice to say, the portions were large and Herman made sure to ask us how we liked our eggs :). Herman also owns cattle at a nearby farm so the milk was fresh, pasteurized and delicious. Herman also puts out fruit in his garden which attracts many tropical birds such as the beautiful blue gray tananger. You are able to listen to beautiful birds while being served a great big breakfast. Dont hesitate on this place. I would definitely go back to this family fun place as it was well worth the money we paid. But also keep in mind me and my friend are young students that were backpacking. So we werent expecting the Belagio. In any case, if you are looking for the best bang out of your buck definitely go with Jardines Arenal.
