the staff was very helpful the rooms were clean And the atmosphere is delightful The other travelers were friendly I very much enjoyed my stay in Arenal Hostel Resort I have already recommended it to others! Happy new year the construction started too early and woke me up! The artificial smell of the cleaning solutions used are hormone disrupters and it would be a good idea to use "green" cleaners to protect the staff as well as the clients
The staff was very courteous and helpful. They had a breakfast included that was excellent with a nice variety of different things each day. Breakfast could be had indoors or out on a patio with a nice view. The beds were very hard and uncomfortable, and amounted to a mattress on a frame that had no box spring. There were no comfortable chairs or a patio one could sit out on, unless you went over the the main building. Our room was in the building next to the main building and it looked it had been hastily sided with with aluminum siding and a tin roof. Although there is a view, the windows can not be opened making the place a greenhouse without any vents; there wasn't even a bathroom exhaust and it was obvious the place was not insulated. So with no air conditioning, and unable to even open a window, and only a single floor stand fan the place was unbearable in the daytime. Before returning from our days activities we had to open the door and position the fan to blow in as much cool air as we could. With some improvements on the issues I've mentioned it could be a nice place. The room itself was low on the scale of what I'd call "the basics."
It was very aitentic orgsnic farm, all the personal are very frendly , the cabin and food was much beter that we expect . We enjoy the walking in the jungle explain us all rhe kind of fruts and vegetsbles and then all that we see it become in our brekfaat, including the fresh milk and eggs from their organic cows and chiken We think once you stay there you dont have to hire trails walking becouse there are several excelent and not turist way.
