It was a nice Hostel and the Dorm rooms were really big so you had enough space for everything. Coffee for free all day!

It's noisy but then most places in La Fortuna are. I was unlucky to be sharing a room with an obnoxiously loud group but the lack of a communal area meant that people were still drinking in the rooms at midnight. An area for people to gather would be a good idea in what seems to be a bit of a party town. Staff were very nice and helpful, even if they didn't receive my original booking . Sadly not a great experience overall.


It was a very nice stay at la amistad! The girl on the reception was as nice as you can imagine. We are smokers and it was no problem to smoke in the garden! We stayed only for one night, but it couldn't be a nicer stay in la fortuna!


The toilet and the hot water was not working most of the time. Difficult to fall a sleep because it was too close to the noisy street


Maybe a couple chairs or bean bags would be very nice in the common area, it would create a better atmosphere and it would be easier to connect with other backpackers. Otherwise, very clean, secure, well located and worth your money.


6 of us arrived & not only did they not have our reservation, but the front desk woman was extremely unhelpful and rude. She said this was Hostelworld.com 's fault & "this was not her fault" & "not her problem" after we traveled for almost 24 hours. She said she closed bookings & we should not have been allowed to book accommodations. I pulled up & showed my reservation, but she just kept shaking her head. She then said she may have 5 spots, that changed to 4 & finally 3 spots before we left.

The dorms are clean and spacious. Nice bathroom. The furniture is in good state.


The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the location was conveniently close to the town center.
