I had a mix experience here, but would prob stay again. Pros: Best hot shower I've had in Costa Rica so far! Rooms were clean and the staff answered all the questions I had about the area. Cons: Fan in my room was broken. There was no coffee in the morning, the staff was up and when asked about it we were told "later." Wifi didn't always work in the rooms with the door closed. No issues with it on the upstairs balcony or in the lobby.

This hotel is very cheap, but you get what you pay for. The room was in poor condition in terms of cleanliness - bed linen was dirty (looked like it was unchanged after previous guests), bathroom had some kind of fungus on the walls, the sink/toilet were dirty and there were cockroaches. The only real plus is the location - it is close to the bus station. Think twice before booking - with some extra money you can get much better room.

There were a lot of negative reviews about this place, but honestly it was a great place to stay. Bed was comfortable. Room was clean. Hot shower. Cleaning service if you want it. Great terrace with view of the volcano. They can book tours for you. Coffee in the morning. 1 min walk to Main Street of La Fortuna. Quiet area for a good nights sleep. GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY!

Excellent location near bus station. Internet out of range in some rooms. Musty mold smell in one interior room without window to open for ventilation. Large floor fan was appreciated in the heat and rainy season humidity of La Fortuna. My room was a safe refuge from alarming bolts of lightening in an afternoon storm.
