Lonely Planet review
This is the most ‘grown-up’ hostel in town. The rooms are done in whites and beiges, and the courtyard is lush, lovely and strung with hammocks. Guests are invited to go down the street to the sister property, Arenal Hostel Resort , to join the party (swimming pool, bar) and then to return here for quiet, comfort and a good night’s sleep.
The hostels in this town are not very creative with their names. This place should not be confused with La Fortuna Backpackers, which is a different beast altogether.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel Backpackers La Fortuna and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in La Fortuna.
