I am a graduate student, and went to Tortuguero with 3 of my classmates as a weekend trip between work weeks for an internship we are completing in San Jose. We LOVED this hostel. The owner, Sara, was so nice and helpful. We were given a 4 person room, which was perfect for our group, at a great price. The... More

Such an adorable hostel. Very clean, friendly staff, nice common area with hammocks and wifi. A great deal for what it is. Loved being so close to the soccer field, the town, and the beach (less than 5 minutes walking to each). Loved our stay in tortuguero, and La Casona was a huge part of why!

I came when there weren't turtles, so I ended up getting a private room for $10 for the night! And the best part is La Casona is right near all the tour operators and the boat dock, not a long walk down the beach like some of the others.

The town is nice, the national park is nice, the location of this place is nice but the place itself is only okay in my eyes. It really is very basic, the rooms and bathrooms aren't very clean, the breakfast is simple and we had to pay more than 10 dollars more than some other guests who arrived without booking... More

We stay 3 nights at La Casona. Situed in downtown Tortugerro near the beach, this cabina is really a good option to enjoy Tortugerro. Clean and calm.
