    Good place overall”

    There was a scorpio in the room at our first night. As we understand this is Costa Rica, they gave us a Raid can and nothing more was done. On the other hand, the site is well equiped and the staff is nice. It is near everything you need.

    STAY AT THIS HOSTEL!!!”

    The most luxurious hostel I've stayed in anywhere in the world! Super-clean and well run, with an AC unit in my room more modern than anything I've seen in the US. An oversized Jacuzzi with a swim-up bar in the midst of an amazing courtyard with hammocks is only part of the charm. I met more people hanging out there during three evenings than I had in the past two years of everyday life (in LA, nonetheless). Location is not only central, it's essentially the centerpiece of La Fortuna. The advisories: If you get a room around the main courtyard, it will be noisy in the evening, at least till 10pm when the bar closes. You need to ASK for towels and leave a deposit. Also, a very affordable 3hr laundry service is available. Can't beat the value with a mallet. Eat at Soda La Hormiga Restaurant with the locals for dirt-cheap. Ask the staff where it is (the second parking lot behind the hostel).

    WARNING: If you book here, you might not stay here”

    WARNING: We booked here, but were moved to "Hotel la Fortuna". This type of changes are SUPER common. Lonely planet book even says so too. Staff was friendly at La Fortuna, location is great. Yet, we can't really rate this hotel, as we stayed in "hotel la fortuna" (as part of this reservation). Hotel la Fortuna was GREAT, we got free breakfast, and this is a 3 star hotel (vs 2 star on Arenal hostel. Still worth booking.

    good hostel ”

    Very good hostel. Only negative points, wifi wasn't working in our room and they switch off the electricity at night. Therefore if you have to use the toilet it needs to be in the dark.

    Very good”

    Very humid dorm (as showers are opening in the dorm and there is no window to aerate), the only plugs were in the toilet, no hot water, same tours sold at different prices,.... Well located, the small pool with the bar is quite "active" at night

    Ok place to stay for a few nights”

    You could tell that is was a hostel from the rooms, which were really basic. Room was really dark, there was only one dim light the roof. We didn't want to keep our curtains open because our room was in front of the bar. During the evening there was a lot of noise coming from the bar. Request room somewhere else if you want to go to sleep early.
