    Great host, clean and cosy wooden cabin style rooms (some with small cute balconies). Good breakfasts of coffee, juice, fruit, eggs, toast and pillo (rice and beans).
    Nice lounge area and the hosts allow guests to make themselves at home in the kitchen.
    Quiet and peaceful, yet a stones throw from one of the main roads.
    Also, it's really close to 'Taco Taco', the best cheap eatery in town!

    Bare-Bones Inn in Santa Elena

    The rooms are incredibly basic. Ours has a queen-size bed plus a twin bed. The queen has a nightstand - and that is the extent of the furniture. No closet, no dresser, no lamp on the nightstand, no desk, no nothing. The lighting is terrible with just one CFL bulb above the entrance and another in the small bathroom, which lacks hot water at the sink as well as a sink stopper. The room is $50/night, which strikes me as a tad high for what you're getting.

    The electricity went out on our second night here. There's no housekeeping service.

    ... but then I had to go back again! It was so hot that when I took my legs out, it was cold on my skin but I knew it was hot.. It was weird! After that, everyone was sitting in a warm pool with a cold pool in the middle of it, and Hayley was doing flips and handstands on the ledge while it was raining. Then Ian started dancing on the ledge with her (he was doing his Beyoncé moves). We played "ninja" and it was so fun :) then when we were ready ...

    The Fortunate

    La Fortuna means, "the fortunate" which is the name of the town and the volcano in the area. El Borio was renamed La Fortuna after the 1968 eruption which killed many people, but narrowly avoided El Borio and its inhabitants. The town of La Fortuna is quite small, we walked to our hostel, which seemed more like a hotel from the outside, trampoline, pool, restaurant, what else do you need? But once we walked into our 8 person dorm, we were brought back ...
