It is great to stay in this guesthouse, big common area, shared kitchen, two balkonies, spacious rooms and hot showers. Even a continental breakfast is included. Centrally located in La Fortuna. Restaurants and supermarkets close by. Everything is clean and lovely. But you need to walk some stairs to get to your room.

The guest house has a familiar home-away-from-home feel, with a pleasant common area that's conducive to meeting other travelers. Rather than kitchenettes, it has a common kitchen area that everyone can use. There is plenty of room and the kitchen was never crowded in our three days staying there. Rooms are reasonably comfortable and easily aerated by opening a window and putting a fan on. Showers and beds are both very nice after a long day of traveling and/or hiking around. The location is pretty convenient, with a bunch of restaurants nearby, and not too far from the bus station.

The best part, though, was Heidy, the on-site manager. She helped us out immensely with suggestions for things to do, how to do them without spending too much money, and how to schedule our time to get the most out of our stay in La Fortuna. If you're a little fuzzy on exactly what you want to do when you get into town, this is a great place to go to get extra information and maximize your time in the area.

Its an open living room space and there are a couple rooms connected to it. The decor is individual, artsy style and you feel like your in somebody's home rather than a normal hostel where your just another guest. The location is great. Directly in the city center and we found it quiet as we didn't have a room facing the street. The room was good, the bathroom was a bit small but had hot water and a enough pressure. We were able to use the washing maschine at not additional costs. We would stay here again.

After staying earlier in my trip more in the countryside, it was convenient and nice to stay more in a commercial area, able to walk around and go out to dinner and for drinks easily. The people are great, it's well decorated and clean. The downside is of course the noise from all the mopeds and cars, but it is what it is. Heidi did a great job helping me out with various logistical things.

Having stayed at other hostels and hotels, this was by far the best that I have slept in! It is centrally located, access to all restaurants and activities, and full of good energy! Having our own bathroom and ability to the kitchen was a lifesaver. Peter and his dog Rocky are fun, outgoing, and welcoming. Heidy is precious and so helpful with everything you can think of. I would recommend them to anyone from any country. It is like coming home when you stay there! Pura vida! thank you so much <3
