We arrived in Arenal a day earlier than expected so didn't have our accommodations booked. Our hostel in Tamarindo arranged for us to stay with Mauricio at Sleepers. For $25 a night for a private room, it was a great value. It's just off the main road of La Fortuna, in the southwest end of the town. It looks and feels more like a small motel, and less of a social hostel. Our room was simple, with a double bed, a bunk bed, private bathroom and a fan (no AC). There were some ants crawling around the bathroom but we weren't too fussed about it. Everything else was clearn. The room rate includes a nice breakfast with fruit, cereal and milk, toast and eggs. Plus, Mauricio was very helpful in answering our questions about La Fortuna and giving us information on tours (without being pushy).
