This little house is just a very peaceful place. We arrived my friend and I with no reservations and we were very well welcome by sarah. We stayed in the dorm (only 4 beds, no bunk bed and with bathroom inside) for only 10$. Thank you again to sarah's mum for her advices in San Jose, we found the bus...

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...

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...

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. You may have the chance to see iguanas on the tree in the garden or to watch small frogs in the night in front of your porch. The family will welcome you and...

We checked into La Casona expecting responsible accommodation for the budget we set. From the beginning Sara the receptionist/owner hosted us with outstanding exception. She answerd all our questions, gave us some local info and also stopped us from getting setup by one of many fake tour guides who steal your money. I would recommend La Casona to anyone who...

We stayed for 4 nights and highly recommend a stay here. Nothing is a problem and we were allowed to use the kitchen to cook which was a real bonus. Breakfast was great and Jenny was very helpful with tours and anything we needed.

Awesome staff from the hotel specially Sara, ask for the tours with Roots tours, David and Raquel they are awesome!!! Near from the beach and soccer field. Request an omelet of cheese for breakfast. If you want to save money in the room to spend it in the tours, this is the best place in Tortuguero
