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 travelled with my BF so we took the private room with private bathroom, very well maintained. AC was appreciated since it was hot outside. There is a large common space outdoors, with a restaurant, usually very crowded. I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. As like other Selinas, food and drinks menu are great. Pool was great and well maintained. The staff was helpful at helping us book tours, i recommand the full day tour (included hike at Arenal volcano, waterfalls swim, hotsprings and lunch)

    The rumors are true. This is the best Selina in Costa Rica. The staff, the people, the accommodation.. everything was so awesome. The food is great and the property looks over a river which you hear when you sleep. Amazing - recommend for solo travelers too.

    This Selina had a really neat design and offered a lot of cute, fun places the hang out. The river running through the back of the property was really cool and the bar area had a great ambiance. The only complaints were the lack of socialization & engagement. The way the hostel is designed and how large the areas are makes it kinda hard to socialize and meet new people. Most people were hanging out in groups separately. Also the staff seemed overwhelmed & didn't really engage with conversation.
