This Selina is perfect to reconnect with yourself and to explore the many wonders this area has to offer. With a volcano view, a river crossing the property and right located right in the middle of town you will definitely feel you are lucky too. With yoga lessons, horseback riding, paddle boarding in the lake, hiking, hot springs, canopy and many other adventures La Fortuna is definitively the place to discover your wildest side. And at night you can enjoy some of the best events in town at our playground, live music, happy hour and much more.

We are located right in the center of La Fortuna, which is is the name of a district and a small city located in San Carlos, in the province of Alajuela. We are located in front of the Parque de La Fortuna and a couple of minutes away walking from the bus stop. Nevertheless, the most relevant attractions of La Frotuna must be reached from our facilities by car, taxi or public transport. In this sense, some of the finest attractions of our location are: Parque Nacional Volcán Arenal and Reserva Ecológica Catarata Río Fortuna.

We offer dorms and tent options for those venturesome travellers who are seeking to live new adventures, meanwhile we offer a more private option for those guests who are looking for quietness and tranquility.

    I have no complaints about this hostel. It was a cool vibe, nice open areas, decent kitchen, nice pool, chill restaurant. 3 minute walk to the center of town, by lots of restaurants. They can organize all your tours and shuttles. Slept well, good a/c. Best part, the kitten on property, she’s so sweet. Oh, and hot showers! What else do you need?

    Overall had a really great stay at Selina and glad we experienced it as part of our trip. The facilities were great including the pool and bar area and this has been one of the most sociable hostels we have visited so far on our trip. The only negatives were I would say the rooms were a little crowded, with 10 bunks squeezed into a small room, so felt like there wasn’t enough space to store belongings etc. As well as this I did feel slightly that expensive tours were being pushed on us rather than letting

    It was our first Selina hostel and it was in a very good location and the hostel itself was very clean and not to busy! The pool , bar , bathrooms and dorms were kept very well and we enjoyed our stay. Just a few things that slightly let it down, no towel with the dorm bed which seems a bit silly for the price of the selina. Also the food and bar are very over priced. Overall was a good stay and would recommend :)

    Really enjoyed my stay in the 10 bed dorm. The facilities are great and the extra activities are good to - the latin dance class was so fun. However, it was expensive for a 10 bed shared dorm. Would stay again.

    The outside facilities are beautiful. Everything is clean. The dorm was a bit small for so many people, not a lot of space to store luggage. The dorms had no windows, just air condition, which is not my preference. There was hot water which is great. I found the price for the dorm appropriate, but the activities such as yoga overpriced. I personally did not enjoy the party vibe, there is music every evening and it was pretty loud, even though around midnight it was quiet.

    Very Good

    Scrap the app! Or at least make it optional. Apart from causing extra hassle at check-in, there's nothing worse than being forced to download some random app onto one's personal device to access a service. QR codes for everything are a faff too. Aside from that, curtain rails but no curtains? Also, Worst hand dryers ever!
