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.

    I’ve been wanting to stay at a Selina for a while now and finally got the opportunity to! It was so sick. What sooo backpacker dreams are made of. I met the coolest people and heard so many stories. I genuinely felt safe, even while sleeping in the dorms with a bunch of strangers. The atmosphere is fun and artsy. The vibes are bohemian and chill. The movie room, library, and work room were where I hung out most. They were so well maintained. The staff was so laid back and friendly. I loved it!

    Such a fun hostel! Located right in the middle of town with great restaurants near by. The bar/restaurant/pool area is really nice and well maintained; they had a great Halloween party while I was there. The staff were all really helpful and nice. I’ll definitely stay here again.

    Probably best place to stay in town if you want to be meeting people and have a safe and fun night life! I enjoy a more quiet environment but for a few nights this was the right place to book-I made friends, had random adventures and the beds were clean and comfortable and above most hostel standards. The staff could definitely be more helpful, cheerful and informative for a Selina hostel, but that is out of anyone’s control. Lots of outdoor seating, the food was great and mid range price.

    Booked for two nights and had to check in again on the second night- this also happened to two people I met at the hostel. All thé tours in the hostel are overpriced. Location is good.
