“Warm welcome, relaxed stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

You feel immediately at home at this place as Mauricio gives you a warm welcome. He is helpful at giving tips where to go and what to do. Otherwise just hang out in the garden, having the Arenal volcano right "in front" of you. Rates are fair, private rooms are very good value. Dorm is a bit dark. Good kitchen, good location, the place is clean and you even have a little breakfast included. Had a very good time there, thanks Mauricio!

For $25/night we had a relatively clean private room and bath with a friendly host that spoke english, gave us free breakfast, and set up tours for us.
The major downside to this hostel is that their new location is located near a major intersection in La Fortuna, and the room is far from sound proof. Unless you're a very heavy sleeper expect to be woken up by trucks, motorcycles, and roosters at all hours of the night. Another few minor annoyances include: a lukewarm shower, no hot water in the sink, no A/C, and a few small bugs.

I just stayed at the NEW location in La Fortuna....right smack in the center of the town, across from Central Park and the magnificent Church ( both awesome), and at the start of the road that takes you to La Fortuna waterfall passing Arenal Volcano. Great location, even greater value, very clean rooms and the owner, Ronny, is a wealth of information. Ask him anything and he knows the answer and is a great connection on 'deals' in and about the area. Buy thru him and he will save you money ! He even has bikes to rent. Also, I can't overlook the breakfast that is included with your stay....a great start to your day! I would highly recommend you stay here when in La Fortuna. Thanks Ronny!!

The brothers are legends, what ever you need or want they will sort it out. If you go to La fortuna or monteverde you need to sleep at sleepers, its very good value, very good location, very good breakfast, everything what you need in a hostel and more. Highly recommended

Great service, super-friendly staff. Tell the owner, Ronny what you want to do or where you want to go, and he will figure it out for you.
