    Superb hostel. Really feels like an upmarket hotel resort. Best staff I’ve met. They go above and beyond to help with tours, giving honest opinions. Hammocks are great, and swim up bar is awesome. Slap bang in the middle of town. You can’t beat it!

    We were super happy with our stay at the Arenal Hostel Resort. My husband and I shared a private room. We loved that there was a private bathroom, the rooms were cleaned every day, and there was an AC unit in the room. They also sell tours- we found their prices to be similar to what we’d pay with other companies in town. They pick up at the hostel, which was convenient. It was a great stay!

    The staff, environment and location were all amazing. The only downside is that my room was unbearbly hot. My room was hotter than it was outside (and it was the middle of summer), which made sleeping very difficult.

    Not your normal hostel but very good for the money you pay, very safe in a perfect location and as everyone says the staff are brilliant, Taylor could not do enough and all really friendly and helpful which made it super comfortable from the start, the beds are amazing really comfortable the downside is there are 4 beds in a room the size of a prison cell! Should only be 2 beds in there 3 max. Free tea and coffee and better bathroom it would be a 10 But again the STAFF MAKE THIS PLACE. :)

    We enjoyed our stay at the Arenal Hostel Resort very much, especially due to the very friendly staff and excellent location in the middle of downtown La Fortuna. Since we were traveling in the off-season, it seemed a little quiet and deserted, but I can imagine that the pools and facilities are quite well-enjoyed when there are more people!

    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.

    I do not know how this hostel has such good reviews. The dorm rooms are awful! They are way too small for 4 people, if you or your bunk mate moves in the middle of the night the ENTIRE bunk bed shakes. You have to wear wristbands which lets everyone in town know where you’re staying. The only ok thing about this hostel is the staff are pretty nice and there’s a hot pool with a swim up bar, even so I still don’t think it’s worth it.
