    Check in and out were easy and the hostel is perfectly centrally located in La Fortuna. The staff was attentive and helped me book excursions and a shuttle back to San Jose at the end of my trip. The room was simple but clean and had GREAT air conditioning!

    Such a cute place. Super nice staff. The bar is in the pool which is a very fun touch and the pool was heated so it felt nice. The hammocks were a nice touch and just a great place. Felt secured with the gated entrance! They also provided free one drink at the bar!

    A little expensive for what we got imo, but that’s the same price all over town. But the whole place was super cool. The pool was HOT and there’s hot showers. Breakfast was just alright. But it’s a great spot right in the middle of town. Great places near by and the staff was so so nice. Helped with everything.

    Easy to find and the staff is nice especially the new guy that I forgot his name. The music blast from 2pm till late so bring some earplugs. There is no activity tho. You must try the mango margaritas, they are insanely good. There is a pool with a bar. The water is hot but alway nice after a day hiking. The room is clean and spacy. It has a balcony. Keep in mind that there is animals and that you are in the city center. Look for room 212 (second floor), it has a view on the volcano :p

    We really enjoyed to stay at Arenal Hostel Resort. The room was big and we even had a balcony. The pool with the bar and the hammocks is very nice to relax. The location is great, just in the center of La Fortuna. The staff was very helpful.

    The staff is amazing! Great location also. However, we were there for 3 nights and ended up being waken up by construction work in the hostel at 5am… Really loud noises, it was impossible for us to sleep after 5. No hot water also, but overall, it was alright.

    Very odd hostel. It really is like a cheap resort. A bit like a hippy Disneyland…fake trees, animals and a fake waterfall and sort of hot spring type pool. It was very good value and not the usual hostel experience, but I wouldn’t come back. The staff were lovely, but there were no volunteers so it really did feel like a resort. Only major complainant was the blaring music at all hours - we asked if it could be turned down at about 9pm when the bar was completely empty and we were trying to sleep and were t

    This place has so much potential, but I would not stay here again without some major renovations. Main complaint was the general atmosphere of the outdoor area. We received two free drink tickets and couldn't use them, the man who I assume was the bartender did not acknowledge us at all the two times we went to the bar. The shower also leaked A LOT, the floor was a pool after each shower, and there were 5 of us in the room. This place definitely has a lot of room for improvement.

    The kitchen has almost no supplies and is dirty. We wanted to cook some pasta and there wasn’t even a pan to cook it in, just a rice cooker. Our first room smelled like a toilet and the next day we found 3 cockroaches in our clothes. The second room looked a bit more clean. The staff was really friendly and helped us by suggesting to change rooms.
