Nice, clean and cheap hostel. Close to the main street in La Fortuna and very safe. Close to restaurants, bus station and banks. Stayed in a private room with 1 double bed and 1 single bed and was very clean. I paid about $55 for 3 days. Safes are available but you need to bring your own lock. There is always some staff at the hostel until 10 pm everyday. Owner is very helpful and can book trips for much cheaper than online and outside. Not much common area to hang out or read.
Would recommend for solo travelers and bunch of friends traveling too.
