    Had a good time at this hostel. The atmosphere is relaxed, but still social. Also, the staff was very helpful with my trip, specifically Maria and Jason. I would stay here again.

    Very chill atmosphere... not like the other party hostels in town but it just depends on what you’re looking for. It is fantastic for help with booking tours and transfers. People from less helpful hostels even come over to book what the Container Hostel has to offer

    Nice hostel in Arenal! Definitely eat at Cafe Organico when you’re here, and do the rafting trip to Puerto Viejo or San Jose - it was the highlight of my trip. Pros: -Very friendly staff! -Rooms are really clean -Good vibes overall, met cool people Cons: -Bike rentals are overpriced - do NOT bike to waterfall, it’s all uphill way there -Rooms are very small - 5-person dorm is way way too small -No towels -No breakfast
