Great place! The staff were very nice, the facilities were clean, and the variety of dorms was great. Would definitely book with them again! Also, as a solo woman, I felt very safe!

The cylindrical private rooms are pretty and a great idea in theory, but I found myself wanting more space. Bugs also consistently got inside as well - lots of ants. The facilities were good - I wish the shower stalls had better drainage bc the water overflowed the shower stall every single time. The WiFi was super fast and consistent. The staff were nice and very helpful.

Good location in La Fortuna to explore, and facilities around the hostel are good - swimming pool is a definite highlight and gardens are beautiful. Couple of things: the keycard to our room didn’t always work which meant people climbed through the window to get in - didn’t feel the most secure but there were lockers in the room. There was one staff member who was quite rude, and they didn’t have enough water to purchase each day. Tour that was booked was good - volcano hike and hot springs!
