    It was fabulous overall! We opted for a private room and it was spacious, clean, and the air conditioning was great! The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke amazing English as my Spanish is unfortunately terrible! So many restaurants around and the swim up bar was so fun!

    Stayed with 3 other people in a really nice deluxe room. The room was very clean and the hostel was amazingly clean and had a great atmosphere.

    Awesome place with fun people. The only thing I recommend is not to go to the pool party that the staff really pushes you to go to, its pretty empty and slightly sketchy and far away.

    The place was very clean and conveniently located. The staff was very helpful at helping to plan daily outings and transfers to other towns however the lock to our door broke on two different occasions and I was frustrated that there was no bother to let us know. We had to try the lock for 5 minutes before we went down to ask for help and they told us that they had changed the locks. This happened again the next morning and we were given a different set of keys to try ourselves.

    The hostel was nice. There are two pools that are currently open- one with warm water and a bar, the other with cool water. Plenty of hammocks to relax in. There are no bedside lights or lockers in the dorm rooms. Breakfast is $6 at a nearby restaurant. It’s pretty good- fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, gallo pinto, cheese, plantains.

    The overall stay at Arenal Hostel Resort was good. Everything was clean. It was really simple and had great secure parking for our rental car. However, the best part of this hostel was Michelle. She worked at the desk across the street from the "Lava Lounge" informing customers about tours. She was the most welcoming, fun, enthusiastic person we probably met our entire time in Costa Rica. She is the best things this hostel has going for it.

    A nice place, but seemed to be more like a resort with a few dorm rooms stuck in than a hostel. The kitchen was very small so not the best for self caterers and the common areas were quite loud so it was hard to relax and socialise if you weren’t drinking at the poolside. The rooms were spacious and had en-suite bathrooms which made the stay comfortable and staff were friendly (although a bit pushy with the tours sales) so overall it was nice enough, but it lacked the backpackers vibe!

    Got moved from this hostel to La Fortuna bacjpackers. The same company but still it's not the same place. Dorm was small but had Aircon. Bathroom needed cleaning a bit more frequently.

    Fridge was broken and kitchen isn’t used at all with almost no amenities. Cold showers too even though they said hot. Staff at the front was not friendly at all, and when asked about what to do, they were super hesitant to recommend anything that wasn’t an expensive tour. If you want to do tours and expensive things, I’d recommend it. Otherwise stay away :/
