Arenal Backpackers Resort

La Fortuna, Costa Rica

We were extremely disappointed with this "Resort." It is entirely not worth the money. While the room was clean, the staff was uninterested, unhelpful, and unapproachable. They play loud obnoxious music (popular American music) starting from 8am to 10pm-there is no quiet, tranquil place on the grounds. This was not what we thought a resort would be and spent our time away from the grounds as much as we could. Save your money and stay at a real hostel!

Hostel Urbano

San Jose, Costa Rica

Hostel Urbano is the BEST place to stay in San Jose!! Jane, Antonio, Kate, and Frank are so so helpful and friendly. They all took time out of their day to help us plan our trip and showed genuine interest in what we were doing. The free breakfast is a delicious plus! The rooms are very clean, safe, and quiet. The whole atmosphere in general is community-based and all travelers stayin there were super friendly. We absolutely LOVED it!!

Its great to know you enjoyed your stay! We try our best to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable and to help with as much as we can when it comes to your time in CR. We all live here in the Hostel and this is why we treat this place like home. It was a pleasure having you here and would love to have you back if you are ever around SJ again.
