Review of La Fortuna

We stayed (8 of us college students) at The Arenal Backpackers Hostel. It was incredible. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. computer lab, restaurant and bar on sight. Pool was clean and there was a clear view of the volcano from our hostel. Staff spoke great English and it was just a great experience over all. We were about a two minute walk from banks, shops, grocery stores, restaurants and tour guides! Also, this hostel and town in general is VERY family friendly. Not just for us traveling college kids!

For under $7 I had a very satisfying meal (with plenty leftover for a second meal) of Fun Mi China Style, which was loaded with vegetables, beef, roast pork, and quite a few shrimp. I did not find the food overly greasy, actually, and the price I´m quoting included a bottle of water and the tip.

The place was clean, the service was attentive, though I had to wait rather long for the check as I wasn´t familiar with the local custom of signaling by raising one´s hand to request it, which the waiter finally came over and explained to me.

If you want chopsticks, ask for ¨palillos chinos¨.

My only complaint was the movie that was playing while I ate, ¨The Patriot¨, noisy and bloody--not my first choice for dinner!
