Nice place, a public kitchen if you want to pack your own food. Many levels of terraces, all with a view, for you and your family to park your stuff on. If you want to get an early start or a late stay, rent a room and enjoy it without public guest in the morning and evening.

We didn't stay at the Money Hut hostel overnight but took a taxi from Granada out to Laguna de Apoyo, and followed the recommendations of other travelers to spend the day at the Money Hut enjoying their beach access. The Laguna itself is incredible. A gorgeous body of water that is warm and massive, with limited development along the beach front making it feel more remote. The Money Hut was affordable for day access, and they had a bar and restaurant available with overpriced decent food and cold Tona's. We had access to the beach chairs, hammocks, kayaks, inner tubes, and they is a floating dock to swim out to. The weather was warm that day, but there were a lot of waves bringing in a large amount of trash onto the beach. There also appeared to be a trail that you could take for additional exploring but we didn't do this. When we were ready to go back to Granda the staff at the Monkey Hut called us a taxi. Overall it was a great afternoon at the Laguna!

Lake is gorgeous! Get to use the kayaks for free but the food is overpriced and tasteless. Staff is nice and rooms are clean but no maid service. We stayed for 3 days and really liked it and recommend it.

If you enjoy a huge amount of “Rules” and please don’t do etc etc .... stay here ! In our room alone there are 4 plaques/posters of lists of things not to do ? Never ever have I stayed where the rules were so strict, very odd! Last time I stayed here 5 years ago Monkey Hut was the best place to stay with BETTER food nice staff and a dock on the water you could run off and jump ! Things have changed dramatically !!!!! New ownership I’m assuming and it’s not fun at all ! Last night I tried to get a soda from the bar at 9:22 pm ... oops they close at 9 ??? For a simple soda? When I’m paying 60$/night with No air conditioning, no room cleaning , small rooms , no fridge , no pressure in the shower , a toilet I have had to get serviced twice so far... really not impressed !!! The Girl down at the Bar is Super Rude ! Had issues with her every day with attitude ! She must not be very happy ! GO TO PARIDISO!!! We have been there every day for food and drinks and atmosphere, haven’t even stayed at monkey hut one day for the day only to sleep Not impressed Needs help S.T.A.T!!!!!!

We have enjoyed very much staying at the Monkeyhut. The service from the staff is as if this place is a 5star resort. Although they position themselves as a hostel. The manager helped us arranging a sim card by sending the hotel driver to get it for us and even advanced te first charge for us. They have a beautiful place at the lake. The only remark we have is that the bar and restaurant closes too early which makes a long evening with late diner impossible. Although the place is perfect for that. For the rest: go!
