    You have to stay at La Choza if you visit la Fortuna! It is a very nice hostel in a great location, and it was very easy to make friends. The best part is Rommel, who is very kind and super helpful with booking tours and any other information you need. Highly reccomend

    Great location (can walk to bars, restaurants, grocery store, and shops). Friendly staff! You will need a car (or catch a public bus) for hiking.

    We cannot say enough good things about this hostel! We have travelled a lot and this is the best place we have stayed in! Such a lovely atmosphere, very clean and safe. Rommel at the front desk made our stay in fortuna so great and it was such a pleasure talking with him every day and having him help us plan our outings! Highly recommend La Choza

    I stayed in a dorm room which was quite basic - only bunk beds and lockers. There was also a small bathroom. AC was working OK. However the place is nice but could use some better maintence. Facilities are quite worn out. The atmosfere was really nice due a lot of people staying there. Guys working at the reception were absolutely great, very communicative, kind and helpful. Free breakfast (gallo pinto) was an absolut bonus as well as free transfer to HOT SPRINGS. Overall had a great time.

    Stayed here for 4 nights and had a very lovely time, the staff is very helpfull and nice (thanks Rommel) and the tours they offer are (relatively) cheap and good value for your money. The only minor thing was that the shared toilets and showers could be a bit dirty. Would defenitely stay here again!

    It’s a good place, but I didn’t feel the vibe. Roman was nice and helpful. I was in the dorm and had a weird s**t-smell in the room. Later I found out that it came from the dogs which were kept in a dirty place outside, like in a cage!! This is definitely not how you should keep animals. Also the mattress was very soft and I could feel my back every morning.

    Unfortunately I have no idea how this hostel has such great ratings, it was a pretty bad experience overall even for the cheap price. Pros: breakfast is delicious, location is right in town, free parking. Cons: (dorm) air doesn’t turn on til 9, too hot to hang in the room so you’re stuck outside no hot water in shower, and the drains don’t work. flooded bathrooms! mattress is VERY uncomfortable. We couldn’t sleep. :( I could go on. Would rather pay $2 extra to be elsewhere.

    We were supposed to stay 3 nights but left a day early. This was because of the vibe in la fortuna and la choza. We got a private triple room on the bottom floor, and it was pretty dark and depressing, the mattress was horrendous, and the sheets were old and thin. Breakfast was fine, but we had definitely had better hostel breakfasts elsewhere. Also when I was checking out, I handed back the key (which had fallen off its keychain) and was then accused of breaking it. Stay elsewhere.
