I really enjoyed my stay at La Choza. Great location. The staff was super friendly and helpful in organizing tours and shuttles. The breakfast was amazing. Love how they have a free shuttle to take you to the river hot springs as it’s expensive to go by taxi. Would definitely stay here again.

La Choza inn has so many great services. Laundry is cheap and they have free rides to the hot springs. They also have great info regarding hikes and are always willing to join in on the fun in the common areas. Everything was very clean and the beds were comfortable enough. The hostel is also very close to downtown La Fortuna, where you candy find supermarkets and restaurants. Make sure to check out some sodas.

La choza inn has been the best place we’ve stayed in Costa Rica so far- not only was it a prime location, but the people we met there we will never forget! As soon as we got in, Rommel greeted us and immediately made us feel comfortable + at home/ seeing him every time we came in or left always made us smile he might be the sweetest person we’ve met during this trip💛We had just dropped off our things before another backpacker invited us out to dinner, and every night continued this way!! Everyone who was staying at la choza was so friendly and we all got dinner/ hung out every night. We stayed in touch with the travelers and saw them in other places locations around the country. Definitely the favorite place I’ve been so far, and I can’t wait to come back! Muchisimas gracias, Rommel!! (:

I can truly recommend this place! I stayed at the dorm. I had free delicious breakfasts and the shuttle to the hot springs which was great and also for free. There was also excellent customer service, especially Rommel was super nice and helpful! If I visit La Fortuna again I know where to stay again. Thank you again for an amazing stay! :)

Would highly recommend staying at La Choza. The hostel has a very social atmosphere, clean , cheap and great breakfast included in the morning. Big thanks to mi Bueno amigo Rommel. Helped me everyday with tours, information and just a very interesting and great guy. Free shuttle everyday to the hotsprings also available and AC in the rooms. Would recommend staying here if you like a more authentic family hostel with great opportunities to get the best deals on tours and a chance to people.
