    Rigoberto the manager knew about different tour providers and gave us honest recommendations and very good deals we wouldn't have found otherwise. The value for money was very good and the hostal had a very good location.

    Stayed here twice and both times were great. One this is you don’t get a free welcome drink and the kitchen is pretty disgusting

    We had the most amazing time here! The room was clean and big, with great air conditioning (a major bonus, especially after a hot and humid hike). Charlie (who works at the front) helped us book all of our tours and he did not disappoint! Everything he chose was perfect and we had so much fun. The itinerary was great! He really knows what he is doing. He's also so kind, goes above and beyond what he has to, and just wants everyone to love Costa Rica (which we did!). Thank you Charlie!

    Great location and staff really friendly! Clean beds and rooms, only downside is the kitchen facilities are a little limited but it is close to loads of restaurants and bars.

    My only complaint is that it was very loud - the windows don’t block out any noise, so between the loud music being played from the bar and the staff sometimes yelling to communicate, I ended up wearing earplugs even in my private room. Other than that everything was top notch!

    I used to live in Costa Rica, and have stayed at Backpackers Fortuna 6 times. The hostel has undergone many changes since 2019, mainly in the construction of the pool/bar area and in the re-branding to "Poshpackers." The facilities are very nice. The major issue we had was that right outside our room (we were not near the pool/bar, but on the other side) there was a loud group of people blasting their music and drinking past 11pm. Quiet hours not enforced. No up-to-date contact number was given.

    Actually pretty good and better than pictures show. A bit difficult to find — property is 2 buildings east of where google maps shows and doesn’t have a huge sign (right next to the supermarket). Reception is very helpful with activity bookings and the hammock area is nice.

    Very Good

    Beautiful common area with a bar, a pool, and many hammocks. There was a good atmosphere and good music at night at the bar. The receptionist was very helpful and gave us many tips. However, the Wifi was barely working, it only worked near the reception which means I had to use my data almost all the time. The room was clean but there was no AC and there were some insects in our room. The kitchen was not well equipped and full of mosquitoes. Laundry was expensive but good service.

    Very Good

    I booked this hostel, got a confirmation email and everything only to get an email shortly after that it is actually closed and they were moving us to the hostel across the street. We had a 3 bed room booked (double & 2 twins), and they charged us an extra $10 claiming we only booked for 3 people. The resort was empty and they said all they had available were rooms with 2 double beds which wasn’t suitable for us.The music was uncomfortably loud. Would not recommend unless you are into frat vibes

    The atmospher rating is not the hostels falt because of the pandemic there was very few clients. Cleanliness in the rooms was impeccable. The kitchen in general needs some attention especially the fridges.
