Arenal hostel was very good. The air con was great. Large private twin room with ensuite. Friendly staff with good tour agency on site to book trips and shuttles. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Near to local restaurants. No negatives at all. More

Convenient location. Expensive in comparison to other hostels we have used on our trip. Hooks or clothes rail required for rooms as no place to hang anything. Reception at the sister hostel (backpackers arenal) were more knowledgeable about tours etc. More

I didn't like my stay in this place as the staff is not friendly at all and it is very noisy. The room was clean but they were almost no paper toilet left (not very handy!) and no shampoo or bath product in the bathroom. We also had to ask for towels are there were not. I don't recommand More

They need to invest in some new mattresses. Rooms smelt damp. Only one bathroom shared by everyone staying in all the dorm rooms. No time specified that guests need to be quiet so people up until 1am directly beneath the dorms with only wooden floor boards beneath us. No lockers! Sofas More
