Whilst staying in La Fortuna for two nights, we decided to book something in the center of town. This comfortable inn is just of the main street. Great little place to stay. Rooms clean and wonderful air conditioning. Breakfast was also included which was a real bargain, considering the price we paid for two night's. The receptionist was so helpful and friendly. He really made us feel welcome and nothing was a problem for him. Fun guy!
Would really recommend here, great value.

I had a very pleasant stay at La Choza Inn. It has a great location, very close to downtown but off the main street so it is quiet at night. The room was clean and had a great airflow so my rest was very pleasant. The breakfast in the morning was awesome. Coffee, fresh pineapple and watermelon, toast, PEANUT BUTTER (the first time i had had peanut butter in a long time and i was super excited about it) jam and scrambled eggs made for you by one of the staff. Excellent. I thought the wifi worked very well and there was also one computer on site to use if you did not have your own. The bathrooms were large and clean. The best part of my stay was having an EXCELLENT view of Arenal Volcano. I have no complaints about this property and would recommend to anyone wanting a nice place to stay with breakfast included.

I chose this place because I hears it was cheap and breakfast was good, but was a little nervous about the negative reviews.

My friend and I, however, loved it here!! It's a quick walk into town and the woman at the front desk called taxis for us and even offered to take us to the natural hot springs herself! She showed us where to go on the best hikes and was very helpful.

There was an open kitchen that was great for making our own meals. I Stayed In The Female dorm. It was fun meeting other international travelers. The hostel room was clean and the bathroom looked new! Only suggestion: no towels, so make sure you bring one! Also, it's still hot at night so you only get one sheet. If you are someone who easily gets cold, you may want to bring a sweatshirt or something.

This place was quiet and peaceful, with delicious breakfast! I highly recommend!!

La Choza Inn offers cheap accomodation, considering especially the included breakfast. Dorms and bathroom are big enough, altough the bathroom has a bad smell. Unfortunately the staff was very unfriendly and gave us the feeling of disturbing their private life, as the owner family uses the same kitchen as guests do. When arriving we weren't provided with any information and had to ask about everything. In our second night there, there was suddenly a guy staying in our FEMALE dorm and as we complained at the reception the guy there called us unfriendly and said we should be glad to have such a cheap accomodation. All in all la Choza Inn is a good choice if you are looking for a cheap accomodation, but don't expect the hostel to be cosy or the stuff to be helpful!

We just stayed last weekend in la Fortuna for one night. We expected two doublebeds as we were three people. We got a room with three doublebeds. so plenty of time. The stuff was very friendly and everything was clean. The breakfast was nice with toast, eggs, fruits, coffee and juice. it's just a short walk from the busstation and really quiet!
