    Stayed there twice during visits to Arenal volcano. Great place with nice staff and cool atmosphere. Onside bar and restaurant are pretty good as well. Prices aren't too bad and the location is nice, hidden away behind the main street.

    The hostel is run very professionally, and they are very accommodating to your needs. If you're a light sleeper I'd suggest picking a room far from the bar. My only problem was that the music was unnecessary considering the lack of customers. The rooms all...More

    Few questions, How long and how much would a taxi/bus/shuttle be to get from La fortuna resort to Jaco? How much is taxi to get to volcano park each way? How big are lockers in shared dorm room? Can it fit the typical backpackers backpack? Thank you. I want to stay here while on vacation, but those are my concerns. Thank you

    the taxi to the volcano park should be about 4000 colones. stayed on a private room and hence did not need a locker.

    How does the laundry service work at Arenal Hostel Resort? Is it self-laundry service, included in the rate, per kilo, etc? Would we need to drop off our laundry and pick up at the end of the day?
