Property Description

La Fortuna is named after how lucky the town was when it wasn’t destroyed by the volcano's eruption back in the 60s. 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 diverse accommodation options oriented in diverse kind of guests and travellers. 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. In addition, we have several common areas and complementary activities mentioned in the first paragraph that will make the stay of the guests something meaningful to be remembered.

pros: location and shower (water pressure is the best out of all hostels I have stayed) cons: My dorm room was so muggy and made me sick. The facility needs some area where people can hang their wet bathing suits, shoes, and towels. Unlike other Selina locations, there are not that many free events (besides dancing classes). Yoga classes and CoWork spaces were so empty: management could lower the prices so that more people can utilize those spaces and events.

The best about this hostel is the Location, its easy to get to multiple places in La Fortuna. Facilities are great but could improve, they don't have ensuite rooms and the beds are not updated nor do they have a curtain. Additionally, all Selina's have different policies in terms of breakfast so good luck navigating that. Food and drink are good and well priced, better than trying to find a restaurant in town. I recommend DONT book transport and tours on Selina as they are OVERpriced!

Pros: Beautiful place with a great, social atmosphere. Everything was so clean and by dorm bed was so comfy. I would definitely stay again. Cons: It’s a shame the bar closes so early though (1030pm), even on weekends. The room was so cramped too. Definitely not enough space in between the bunks
