Arenal Backpackers Resort

La Fortuna, Costa Rica

No hot water. Guy on front counter nice enough. Clean, quiet. The bed was uncomfortable, in fact the pillows were the problem. Like a bag of rolled up socks. The AC leaked all over the ground. Pool nice. Cafe staff nice but really slow.

I would arrive in Holbox, then book, rather than using hostel world. i got a different rate and the amount the website told me i owed was less than i was charged by the owners. it wasn't much so i didn't argue it. i also had to pay via paypal prior to arrival, which defeats the purpose of using an online booking system. i would recommend this place to my friends. on a side note: the doors are on heavy hinges and slam, so if you are going to stay here, please be considerate.
