Posada Inn is very well run by Carmen. She hosts you and gives all information and support you may need. Clean rooms with hot shower were OK, but her attention and the breakfast was what made the difference. The breakfast had the best Gallo Pinto we eat in all Central America. It was also important for us to have secure...

When I first I arrived I was immediately greeted by Elena. She quickly made me feel at ease, showed me around the hostel, and offered suggestions around La Fortuna. I spent a few afternoons lazily sitting in the rocking chairs in the front. Throughout my stay the hostel staff was very accomodating. The hostel is in a great location a...

This was the least expensive place we stayed on our whole trip, and for $35 a night for both of us, it couldn't be beat. The rooms were definitely simple (as expected). We did get hot water, but it took quite awhile and didn't last too long. They also did laundry for us on site, which was great. Breakfast was...

Granted, it's not really the hotel's fault, but we were misled to believe the price was $17 per night. NOT $17 per person.(There are 2 of us) The guy who told us this had been a tenant there for many months, and he showed us our room while the clerk was away. We confirmed "$17 for the room" he said...

We went to La Fortuna from Monteverde not excepting a great experience (lots of people had told us how much more touristy and naff it is in relation to Monteverde) but we were pleastantly surprised. Yes it solely exists as a town due to the now dormant volcano and the hot springs and as such has a pretty large tourist...

Excellent hostel with nice garden area to chat with other travelers. Great location, only a short stroll to the centre of town. Big, clean rooms, we had a private double. Friendly, helpful staff. Carmen makes a tasty, big breakfast! The kitchen can also be used by guests. She also helped us with shuttles, taxis and tickets to Baldi Hot Springs....

We stayed for 4 nights in a room with private bathroom and if we ever go back to la Fortuna we'll stay at Posada Inn again because everything there was excellent.

I stayed at Posado Inn during Christmas time and the staff at was more then accommodiating. The breakfast was excellent and if you wanted any special requests they were sure to do those for you.

We had a wonderful experience at Posada Inn! We were in La Fortuna for two days and wanted to make the most of our time there.
