Arenal Hostel Resort

La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Coming from a relatively dingy hostel in San Jose that costed the same per night, this seemed like heaven. Hot water! TOWELS. Clean toilets! Room service! AC! 10+ outlets! A swim-up bar, pool, fountain in the middle, view of Arenal from our room, rocking chairs outside, and super helpful staff who all seem to speak perfect English. They helped us place calls, make reservations, find good places to eat for our budget, and always asked us how everything was going. It was practically a nice hotel.

Hostel Bekuo San Jose

San Jose, Costa Rica

You get what you pay for. We arrived in San Jose at 1am, so we really needed a place with 24 hour check-in. Ended up with a room for 4 instead of a room for 2 because they had already filled the 2-person room (this was great for us). Ensuite bathroom was bare, a little difficult to operate, and a little smelly, but functional. Hot water is limited, but if you decrease the flow, the water gets hotter. People are friendly and open and may invite you out. Breakfast was eggs, pancakes, and fruit.
