    Only stayed two nights for some much needed rest, got a private room. Super affordable, quiet in the evening, slept great! Staff was friendly and accommodating, they even let me check in super early. Grounds are charming, location is ideal to all bars and restaurants, pool is nice, tons of hammocks. Would stay again!

    Great Value for money. Staff was very friendly and could recommend free and paid excursions, in between hanging out. Library was all books in English:) Pretty social vibe, easy to meet people by the (cold!!) pool. So happy with this place !!

    This hostel was great! I had the best sleep of all my travels! The rooms were so quiet! Pool and all the outdoor areas were really beautiful. Didnt seem super social, maybe cause it looked like drinks were really expensive. The lady at front was really sweet. I like there was lockers by front to secure valuables on check out day while adventuring. Downside, the Wi-Fi was really really poor, like didn’t work at all in rooms. Otherwise would have been close to 10

    This place was okay! Not the best place to meet people and the wifi is AWFUL. And there’s only one plug-in in the rooms so it’s hard if you work remote like me. But it’s very clean, beds were comfy, and the pool was nice. The rooms are super hot since the fan is in the middle of the room and doesn’t reach the beds, but it is right on the main road and is a good price. Kitchen is definitely lacking, but it’s better than not having one.

    Dorms of 7, the lockers are a bit weird. Big rooms, nit that tidy, but not so dirty. Very helpful receptionists!

    Stayed in a private, and the room itself was basic, but sufficient enough. The shower was somewhat weak, but still better than many other places. There isn't a common area and the kitchen is really small. The pool area is about the best place to meet people since the property is very spread out. The bar itself was practically empty for the majority of the time I was there. Nice that it's near the center of La Fortuna.

    If you prefer small and cozy hostels like I do, this hostel is probably not for you! Other than that, the hostel was fine. Very sweet girl at reception who helped me with my bus trip. There’s a swimming pool to cool off and everything gets cleaned well. There is a lot of dirty dishes all the time tho, but I guess that’s hard to tackle in a big hostel. Also not a great place for meeting people, most people travel together and there’s not really a social atmosphere (as I experienced it).

    Nice pool area, but kitchen/common areas are spread out so a little harder to meet people. The hottest and most stuffy room I've stayed in Costa Rica. Needs a ceiling fan or something! Room was also in a weird spot by the entrance and no lockers in the room itself.

    To be honest we hated that place. The lady at the front desk was not accommodating to say the least. They were renovating the kitchen literally right next to our room, making it feel like we were in a construction site (not exactly something that adds to the general atmosphere). We had to shower in freezing cold water in our dorms, and when we asked them to fix it, they said it's not included in the price (??) Whilst all the other dorms did infact have water. Just not worth the money.
