    This hostel/budget hotel is lovely -- well-located, with helpful staff and very clean amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and recommend it to others (be careful while booking though, because there are a few places in town with similar names eg Arenal Backpackers, Resort/Hostel etc).

    Great hostel option for Fortuna. A little further away from the middle of the city (yay quiet!) but within walking distance to everything. Rooms and facilities were clean, and the shared area was very welcoming and fun (who doesn’t love a hammock?). WiFi was also great, and breakfast was delicious. Staff were super friendly and accommodating, booking everything for me and arranging transportation when needed - could not thank them enough. Would definitely come back here.

    We loved our time at this hostel - the location is perfect, the rooms/bathroom/kitchen are clean and with comfy beds. The shower was powerful, kitchen fully equipped and breakfast was delicious. There was no window in our particular room but this wasn’t an issue for us. Staff are all very friendly and extremely helpful and there’s a great hammock area in the courtyard. Great value - would stay again and recommend!

    The best thing about this place is the staff! Especially the lady. A+++++ She was so knowledgeable and enthousiastic in explaining about the tours. Really fun to talk to her. Also the guy was friendly and helpful. Something did go wrong during my stay but they really cared and did everything they could to solve the situation and compensate me. Also good beds, kitchen, atmosphere and hammocks. Only problem for me was that my dorm had no windows and the bathroom door closes very loudly.

    Behind the bland exterior, this hostel is very cute and clean with nice hammocks and fairy lights. Rooms were quiet and bathrooms were clean, staff were very helpful and provided us with a free drink and pool use at a nearby hostel. The hostel was quiet but did encourage use of nearby hostel bars. Loved our stay and would recommend. Great value for money.

    The hostel is clean and neat. We got 2km of free laundry which was nice. The staff there are very helpful especially when asking about tours and things to do. It’s a pretty quiet hostel though so if you’re solo, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it.

    Basic and depressing. I don’t know how this place has such a good rating. The dorms were small and depressing and the bathroom flooded after someone showered. I switched into a private room, which was better but this place really lacks atmosphere. Free laundry though.
