We went there after someone recommended it to us and we were really disappointed. Ok the price is very reasonable but the room was super dark, not even a window. The bathroom was clean but right next too an outdoor corridor very smelly. The place...More

Hostel staff was very friendly, helpful, both while making reservations and during our stay. They had good recommendations for things to do and see, and were knowledge able about further transport. Common areas (including a well-stocked kitchen) were always bustling. Dorm was a bit dingy...More
We stayed with our four kids in one room - a double, bunk beds and loft. Pros: It was clean, efficient, right in town and the staff was super helpful. Cons:pretty noisy, but my guess is everything in town will be. There are a bizillion...More
All you could ask for in an hostel. Jonathan and all the staff were very helpful, not pushing you to do any activities to get a commission. They were very honest. The room was clean, as was the hostel. The free coffee was excellent! Low...More
I'm so happy I was able to stay here. I originally had issues getting a hold of them via email, but that was apparently due to their internet provider. Its such a cozy place, warm/hot shower, clean, and my favorite is the coffee at 5:30...More

The breakfast was provided in the attached food spot Taco! Taco! When I was there, there was a choice of fruit with yoghurt and granola and toast or tacos with eggs. Both were reasonable. I am a vegetarian and so I had both on occasion. They have free coffee all day.
As the other respondent said, the shuttle is not free, but I can't really imagine it would be as Santa Elena is way up in the mountains. A resort close to the airport could have a free shuttle theoretically, but I never saw any free shuttles really. There are plenty of transportation options for tours and activities. Sometimes the place that you get the tour will send transport or the kind folks at the pension can help arrange things for you.
