8.0.Very good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    La Choza Inn was super clean and simple. The staff was very informative about the tours and shuttle transportation around La Fortuna. We got the double private room and it was spacious and very clean. 5/5 I recommend this place. It's also nicely tucked away from the busy touristy town of La Fortuna.

    Great breakfast and location

    Great gallo pinto breakfast, beautiful courtyard and lots of outdoor seating. Room itself was small but extras made this budget accomodation nice.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Wonderful receptionist who was very helpful and spoke both English and Spanish. Great location a block off the main street. They give a one-time free shuttle to the free hot springs river area (an Uber there is about US$7). The only problem was on a Friday night it was quite loud until 2am due to a party next door.

    Good for price

    It was nice stay for price. Great location near to Main Street. Hot water was bit of problem though, but overall good budget hotel.

    Liked breakfast and room. The Kitchen was too narrow for so many people at night

    Simple and what I needed.

    At first I wasn't sure if I'd like this place(didn't get a warm greeting like at my last hostel). As the day settled i grew to like it for what it was: a simple yet comfortable hotel that had what I needed including a coffee machine. All staff were friendly, breakfast was good and when I asked about the free shuttle to the hot springs I got exactly what I needed. Yahoo!

    Perfect place in La Fortuna

    It is called hostel but practically it’s a hotel, because you get towels and breakfast. Location is perfect, nice and kind crew. Comfortable and clean rooms. Very recommended
