I spent three nights at the Sleepers Hostel in La Fortuna and very much enjoyed my stay. Though the accommodations are modest, it's a the perfect place to affordably leave your things and have a look around the lovely area that is Arenal/Fortuna. Mauricio, the hostel owner, may be one of the nicest men on the planet! When I checked...

This place is really sketchy. We had made a reservation here, but once we arrived we decided to stay somewhere else. It seemed very bare bones and wasn't in the best area.

I had a great time at Sleepers, Mauricio and family made every effort to enhance my experience, including excellent deals on tours and excursions. I even stayed longer! Sad to leave. Location was good, not in the town center, but near enough (nr Gringo Pete's Too), with a supermarket a stone's throw away.

We stayed here for two nights and were really pleased with the free breakfast and free internet which we were able to use for as long as we wanted - great news as it was pretty rainy at the time! There is a tendency for foreigners to be really worried about being ripped off in La Fortuna but the man...
