Sad but this could have been a 5 stars review. Firstly, we had a great welcoming by the staff with good advices and infos about the nearby attractions. The hostel offers basic facilities and accomodation that worth totally the 20$/night. So far everything was fine, we were able to sleep even if it's really windy and noisy outside. We were...

We stayed at Casa Tranquilo for 3 nights in December 2014. The rooms were nice but walls were a bit thin, which was fine as the other guests were very respectful of quiet hours. There is a reasonable kitchen and a grocery store just a couple hundred meters up the hill, which is great if you want to save some...

We were deciding what to do for the day and the guys pointed us toward their free tour to the strangler tree - only to climb it and repell down it!!! An ace day thanks to Filan - who I hope...

Got to stay at this hostel for two nights while in Monteverde, and I was very happy with just about everything about this place. Would have been great to have hot-water though as it was pretty cold, wet, and rainy while there. Other than the hot-water issue, the staff are what made this place incredibly inviting and welcoming. They were...

Hola, as the name suggests: a tranquilo and welcoming hostel, ideal for backpackers! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Their recommendations regarding daily activities around Monteverde/Santa Elena were very useful! Breakfast was great, too! The hostel is central, 10min walk to the bus terminal and 5min downtown Monteverde/to the next supermarket. Well, weather was cloudy, rainy and cold (compared...

This was the cutest hostel ever - it felt sort of like a tree house! There was a really welcoming and genuine atmosphere to it, and the staff went the extra mile in how they treated all their guests. Ro answered whatever questions we had and was definitely one of the coolest people I met during my trip. The breakfast...

Recently stayed in this hostel & can honestly say this is the best hostel we have ever stayed in. All the staff were so friendly, helpful & honest. Especially Ro, who was always polite & knew the answer to every possible question we had. The room was what you expect for a hostel, although the electrics hanging above the shower...
