When we arrived, the personnel was very attentive, the kitchen was clean and many things to use. the Wifi is super fast and the beds are really comfortable, hot shower and A/C. for me it was a really good option considering the price was not high.

There are 4 Backpacker Hostels in La Fortuna. Which makes it even more confusing. "La Fortuna" Backpackers Hostel is NOT a Hostel!! 4 crappy rooms no hot water, dirty sheets slept in my clothes on top of the sheets, kitchen outside full of trash and old food, bugs everywhere.
Get worse!!! This place is 3-4 blocks from anything! NOT SAFE... special at night walking back at night.
Manager would not budge on moving me to another "Backpackers Hostel" or refund me.
As the pictures show: NO PEOPLE, NO RECEPTION DESK ( small table in the laundry mat ) to take your $!
Nothing about this place resembles a Hostel.
And don't book a tour with ANY of the Backpackers Hostels. Over priced!!
On the street tour guides are a lot better

As a first time backpacker and also as a solo backpacker this is all in all a great place. Very open and easy to meet new friends, rooms we're real nice and inexpensive and the nightlife was awesome too! Absolutely no complaints in my stay here!

The staff were extremely unorganized and had my girlfriend and I running all over the place to just get a room. We reserved a room online days before arriving yet they didn't have a room for us when we went to check in. They sent us to their sister hostel down the road, where the receptionist tried her hardest to rip us off an insane amount of money for what we were getting. When we finally got a room at a decent price, it had limited kitchen access (couldn't get our food at night or early in the morning), and no hot water (not to mention huge cockroaches).

Just don't go here.

Good location, walking distance to markets and shops. Pretty cheap it was $15 a night per person for the dorm. The dorm was for 6 ppl and one bathroom which was good. Kind of dirty tho. The shower didn't have a rack or anything to place your shampoo or soap. The door was such a hassle because it did NOT have a handle on the inside so you'd have to use your key to try to pull the door to open which wasn't easy. The guy said he'll "EVENTUALLY" Take care of it?? Also they don't accept cards so that wasn't the best. They do keep $5 as a deposit if you lose the key.
