    Sagu hostel is in the perfect location. Only some minutes walking from the bus stop. And from all the bars and shops. The host is super friendly and can provide all kinds of great information because they also run tours etc. Beds are so comfortable and clean, not these slim bunkbeds where you have to squeeze yourself in. Best price in Fortuna and a cool spacious place. I‘d totally recommand it.

    This is a rustic and homemade budget hostel. The owner Charlie is lovely and enhusiastic and will give you lots of advice on to do La Fortuna on a budget. Other guests will be able to give you similar advice Rooms are a good size (we stayed in a double - 2 single beds). Showers and bathrooms are adequate (there's even a hot one!) Good location. Free gym next door is a massive perk - you would pay a lot for a hotel with a gym out here! 1hr per day

    A great stay but the entire 3 nights my friend and I stayed there wasn’t anyone else staying at this hostel. It didn’t have hostel vibes at all-connected to a gym (which allows access). The guy who ran the hostel was soooo nice, helpful, and welcoming. If you want something quiet, this is the place for you.

    anyone can walk in; there isn't someone there after ``10 pm. The room I was in had a door that didn't close completely. The gym has loud rhythmic music playing that is distracting in the hostel. The chairs are comfortable, linens clean, floor clean.

    This is one of the worst hostel I have stayed in my entire life. The kitchen is a joke, everything is dirty, really weird place. You do not wanna cook here. The rooms, you lock it with a padlock, which is weird, but that's the most security you gonna have at this place. Also at the room, you will find an old, full of dust fan, that just blows in one direction. This place just have a weird vibe. All this costs U$15 dollars which is more (or the same) then all the actual good places at La Fortuna.

    There wasn't proper walls between the rooms, the whole room shook when you closed a door. It was far too hot and the fan provided didn't help it just moved hot air around so the room was a sweat box and we couldn't stand to stay in it longer than we had to. The bathrooms were disgusting and smelled of urine.

    There is no security at night. You can’t lock the doors from the inside. There is no maintenance so a lot of things don’t work. There is no love and there are almost no people It is relativly cheap and the location is good
