You get what you paid for. pros: - it's very cheap - it's near the city center (because everthing is near the city center - La Fortuna is a small city) cons: - it's very nosiy (the street, the other guest, the construction area next to the hostel) - the location ist bad - everything is a bit dirty - it's propably bright in your room in the night - payment in cash only - it's smells strong - people in front of the room window If you don't really need to save money: Do not stay there!


The staff was very helpful and nice. We had the very first room on the ground floor, near the common area, but it was surprisingly very quiet in the room and we never even noticed. We were 4 sleeping in the 5 bed room and it was still quite a good deal, money wise. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

A bit out of the way, but that actually gives you some quietness. Comfortable and clean. Somehow lack of atmosphere and bored and unhelpfull staff.
