We had some trouble finding the place. It's off off the main 2 strips and on a rocky side road. The owners don't speak any English, so if you're from the US it's best to know some Spanish. The room was basic, with clean sheets and a tv. The shower had some exposed wires coming out of it, and the water was freezing cold. There were also ants EVERYWHERE. I even found a ton of them living in my bag after we left. There are much better places to stay in La Fortuna.
you Got an Open toilet in the dorm.
Location was perfect. 2 minutes walk to downtown La Fortuna, but off the main road so nice and quiet. View to Arenal from our room and a small poarch for enjoying the breakfast.
