      The people are nice (especially the bartender Roberto), the location is good (right around the corner from the bus station and a close walk to plenty of restaurants and tour companies), the amenities are great (a pool with a bar attached and a nice garden area).

      Overall, no complaints

      The courtyard was nicely landscaped and had picnic tables and hammocks. There was a pool and a bar at the back. Rooms had air conditioning and rocking chairs outside. I can't speak about the breakfast as we left too early to have it. We stayed in the dorms and the beds were comfortable.

      The staff here was very accommodating and nice. They toured us around all their available rooms and made a reservation for us with just a days notice and we got a private room with private bathroom for less money than we paid for a dorm room at another hostel in town. It is a little more quiet and laid back here, but we liked it better that way. The rooms were large, nice, comfortable, and clean. Would definitely recommend.

      Our trip to Costa Rica finally left the city and into the volcanic territory of Arenal where we met a rather relieved and helpful soul in Joe. As a background, he had been our American host via email for ages, trying to sort out options for transportation, being incredible helpful so when he saw us he had a genuine, 'oh great, you're here' look …

      Sunday morning in Tilaran, I have some German biscuits for breakfast washed down with orange juice. Some other travellers are already at the bus station waiting for the 7am to La Fortuna. It costs about 3 and a very scenic bus ride lasted just over two hours skirting the perimeter of Lake Arenal.

      La Fortuna has a lot of activities to offer- hiking the volcano, zipline tours, rafting and so on...the problem is when it rains it rains and it rained! nevertheless we decided to do a horse riding tour to a waterfall and a "village" of indigene people. Unfortunately the horses where not in the best shape even though we were promised when we booked …

      Yesterday was one of those days we spent on routine chores like laundry and trying to make our plans a bit more concrete. Reading travel guides and scouring the internet from the shade of Casa de Papel's patio and jumping in the pool occasionally made it a whole lot easier. In the evening we went to Cafe Liberia, an LP recommendation which was …
