I loved this placed. The location is great; plus the stuff was helpful.


There for two nights in the dorms to checkout Arenal / La Fortuna. Staff was great and really helpful. Walls are super thin, you can really hear everything that happens at night...got yelled at for talking in the main lobby area at night. Otherwise, good place to be for the money, really close to everything and the bus stop is one block away.

The female dorm offered was not that great, apparently it was not prepared and finished for the season, so it had no lockers, no MIRROR and the shower floor was unfinished. It didnt feel that safe, although the people sleeping at the dorm were ok. No breakfast included, which was disappointed for the rate paid ($14 for a female 8-beds dorm) at the beginning of November, when it's not yet high season and every day was pouring raining. I had to change to a double bed private room for $30. Staff ok


Close to bus station, friendly staff, big rooms, air con, nice pool.


Great location close to lots of food. Easy parking. Close to supermarkets. No "hot" water -came out warm. AC worked great. Hammocks were lovely.


Great stay in the heart of La Fortuna. Very clean with good facilities. Recommend Rainforest Cafe two blocks away for lunch and coffee ; )


Always happy and helpful staff. Clean bedrooms and good restaurants around the place. Good bar to meet people and chill out.
