The 6 of us stayed in the 8 bed dorm. The good: It's a nice, clean and large room, no bunk beds. The lockers can fit full size backpacks. The hotel is in a convenient location (going to have street noise like all hostels on the main street.) The downsides: -Kitchen has no oil, spices, and only 2 forks. We...

This hostel is well centered in La Fortuna and you can find everything you need around it. Rooms are cleaned daily, the service is good, but there is not much to do at the hostel itself. There are few hammocks near the front office, and there's a bar with pool tables on the second floor, but that's it. Rates are...

The staff was helpful and friendly in booking tours and giving information. The common areas were quaint and the location was amazing. But the rooms left a little to be desired. They were very hot, and there was only one fan for an 8 person dorm. I was lucky enough to get a bed near the fan, but my friend...

Great location in the middle of everything. Friendly front desk staff they recommended activities and all the activities they booked came to pick us up at the lobby. The rooms have all everything you could ask for, nothing fancy. Convenient store located right next door. Overall great cheap place to stay. Highly recommended.

Booked through HostelWorld and after a 6 hour border crossing from Nicaragua we didn't get to the hostel until 10.30pm. The reception was closed and the security guard was able to accomodate us and find our 2 beds. Basic hostel and fine for 1 or 2 nights. Outside area for people to chill out. On high street so really easy...

Good location in the middle of the centre. That said, you can (and probably will) enjoy sounds of the bar across the street and the cars etc. We were the only ones at the time, but i am sure the whole building itself is noisey. Room was a but old, could use Some fresh paint. Bathroom not that clean. Kitchen...

I have been frequenting LaFortuna for 10 plus years and La Amistad is a great stop over.. It is located on the "happening" corner and everything is within walking distance.

Overslept following a morning hike, checked out at 12.30 instead of 12 and they charged me another night. I thought he was joking, but oh no... Deadly serious. Room was ok, bathroom too but I thought the kitchen and public bathroom should have been cleaner considering how empty it was there.
