A nice hostel with access to the sister hostel for a pool if you want it. Comfy beds, good clean kitchen, lockers in room, good showers. Staff were nice. Welcome drink is good. I would stay here again.
Perfect stay! Staff is so friendly and helpful. They are new in the hostel and it was seen that there are some new arrangements. They care about each visitor. I planned to stay for a two nights, but stayed for four. Rooms are clean and the place is cozy. Nice common area. Location is in the center of the down, but enough privet and quiet for a sleep. Kitchen includes all the things what you need for preparing a meal. And they have a nice barman who will make you a welcome drink! Love the place!
The pool is not in that hostel! It´s in the partnerhostel one block a way.. i would stay there again.
Best hostel I stayed in Costa Rica! The staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Thank you very much!

What a great hostel you have here in La Fortuna! The staff are relaxed and a very good laugh, and also make sure everything is in order. Free shuttles to the local hot springs and to Cherro Chatto trail head. This is a great base for your time in La Fortuna and the prices are some of the lowest in town. I well recommend this hostel!
When I arrived at the hostel, there was no record of my reservation. I had to stay somewhere else as the hostel was fully booked. Can you tell me why this happened?
This is an incredible hostel with the most friendly staff. They have a sister hostel down the street that has a pool that is made available to its customers too. There is a bar with a welcome drink and very nice facilities, including hot water! I highly recommend this hostel!
This hostel was good for the money. Nice and clean. But the staff could've been a little more helpful and enthusiastic Forsure. The bar could be opened later than 10 on a weekend. But jose the bar tender was great ;) and they advertise towels but you do have to pay for them. Love the HOT showers though. There is no pool here it's at another hostel.
The hostel and room are nice. It's disappointing that the staff at the reception don't give you the right information about the neighbourhood and activity's. They purposely give you wrong information about tours, transportation and entree fees. In that way they try to sell you their expensive tours!
We reserved a 5 bed female dorm. When we got there we were shown a 4 bed dorm with a leaky roof and another person already added to the room. We were upset and demanded a new room. They were not going to accommodate us at first. We were not going to pay. So we spoke to a manager who worked things out with us and we got a new room. Overall a good experience that just started off rocky and unpleasant.
Perfect location, clean rooms with nice hot showers, very friendly and helpfull staff. Unfortunatly breakfast at the hostel is not possible, but it is easy to get breakfast anywhere close.
