Decent hostel! We stayed in the cylinder rooms which were cool, but not very practical. The great thing is that everything was very clean! However, we were very disappointed as the pool was not open and there were loud workers doing work on it which affected the vibe of the place.

Would not recommend it for the price! Poor food and really simple dorms. In addition my parfume got stolen. There are better alternatives in La Fortuna for sure! Don‘t make the mistake and book this hostel.
