My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. We had a fabulous time! The staff is super friendly and helpful. Plus, can't go wrong with relaxing in a hammock.

Staff were great, hostel was pretty, great place to meet people.City was quiet at night, most guests were in their rooms by 9. Joe was a great host, helped with all of our excursions and travel between cities. He contacted the right people if we had any questions he didnt know the answer. We stayed here for an extra night because of the great hospitality. Main issue: there were no outlets in our dorm room; one in the washroom, Difficult to share with 12 ppl. But would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the hostel for 5 days and were more than happy! amazing garden with hammocks and pool, clean kitchen and dorm rooms as well as bathrooms. But what we liked most was how friendly and welcoming the staff was, they really went out of their way to make our stay perfect!! It's not very often that the receptionist remembers the names of all the guests and introduces new arriving guests to everyone else. Highly recommend!! Special thanks to Joe :) pura vida!

A really brilliant hostel and I would highly recommend it. Ideal for lone travellers looking to meet people and relax after any daytime excursions.

Great hostel! Very friendly, helpful and energetic staff. The looks are great: there's a pool bar, hammocks everywhere, private chair hammocks for every room, and it's located in the center of la fortuna.
