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.

    Everything you’d expect from a highly rated hostel. A little bit in the pricier side but good amenities. Lots people in and out and taking tours so a nice place to make fast friends. While all the tours require pick up or a rental car, it’s located close to the town and thus access to local restaurants/markets.

    I loved this Selina! Probably one of the best Selina's in Costa Rica. The property is beautiful, and having the restaurant and yoga studio right on a small river in the jungle was amazing. The food in the restaurant was expensive but delicious. The yoga and meditation classes are a must! I am not even a yoga person but I loved it. The dorm room I had was very small and cramped but the bed was comfortable and they kept the bathrooms pretty clean. Definitely stay here in La Fortuna!!

    Great hostel, recommended, easy to make friends. Be aware: - the house dog will wake you up every night if you sleep in the (otherwise cute and comfy) tents; - try to book tours and taxis directly with tour providers to avoid Selena’s big commission fees

    Cool environment, but smaller dorms and less comfy beds. If u can, spring for the teepee rentals. Huge bar that brings in a crowd at night but a strict 11pm quiet time. If u looking for low key, might not be ur spot.

    I was charged on arrival for a yoga lesson I told them I wasn’t going to do any yoga still charged Me, then I spoke with about having it refunded and it still hadn’t been refunded. So just taken $12 for nothing. Also the food in restaurant is very over priced

    It’s a great hostel with good facilities, a nice layout and ambience - however the staff do let it down. A man behind the reception shows very little interest or care for the guests. The cleaners however are very good and thorough. But it does feel like they are just trying to squeeze money out of guests, and don’t really care. In future I would stay at more independent, local hostels.

    Unsanitary conditions. Dorm smelt of mould. Health risk. Aside from that, no atmosphere whatsoever... Do not even consider staying here - it's full of first time travellers and Americans.
