    Quiet hostel at the edge of town in La Fortuna. Not a ton of atmosphere, but a good place to get away from the noise. Private room was clean and comfortable.

    Decent place to stay with great staff

    This is a great place to stay and the staff is a) super helpful, and b) extremely accommodating (I had a stomach bug while here, and the hotel staff helped make suffering through that bearable). I will say that the dorms could be improved - a separate place for showering and a separate toilet would help, and some of the beds lack easy access to stairs.
