I booked and paid online before seeing the hostel because it had a lot of good reviews.... big mistake!! The 4 person dorm is so tiny.... 2 sets of bunk beds so close together and no other place to set anything down. It smells horrible, like mildew and sweaty feet. A girl in my dorm was really sick and coughing...

It's a small hostel with 3 floors. Decent wifi, hot showers & free breakfast. Its a little tired but functional. The street is noisy, so bring ear plugs. The owners are friendly & helpful, they have helped us book all our tours and they've all been great. Good value for the money.

Great location and awesome single top level apartment style pad. The hostel has three floors and you can rent the entire top floor as it is a private room with a large kitchenette, 2 beds, a full bathroom with a large shower, a private balcony and a great view of the town of Monteverde! It is mostly cottage style, so...

This hostel was great! The owner and staff are always happy to help, the lady who greeted me when I arrived took the time to explain everything about the hostel, town and activities. The free breakfast was fantastic with fruit, cereal, eggs and toast all prepared for you. Hot showers with decent water pressure, and a nice balcony to chill...

I loved this place. We stayed in the rooftop room. Super clean, great, friendly and helpful staff, good value and perfect location. Definitely not a party hostel. But who comes to Monteverde to party? 😃 Big plus for the included breakfast.

We booked this last minute (walked in day of) and were pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious and clean, and the vibe was great. Balcony was very inviting. We got a private room with bathroom. Price and location were perfect. We were bummed when it was full the next night and we had to go somewhere else!

The good: Owner orients you when you get there, B'fast is decent with scrambled eggs, toast, fruit and cereal prepared by the daughters. The showers are hot and the location is on the main "triangle" close to 2 grocery stores, pharmacy, food vendors and restaurants. The bad: the common area is dark & poor for meeting other travellers. TV is...

I stayed here one night only because I was there in the beginning of January and everything was fully booked ( High season) . Rooms are very basic but I liked it. No special things but rooms are spacious and there are big lockers. It is the cheapest hostel I found in Monteverde and the rooms are more than ok....

Upon reading the reviews I expected more from this hostel. The rooms and facilities were average at best, particularly for the price of a private room. Dorm prices are more reasonable, but for slightly more you have get a lot better with other hostels. Plus points are the location and breakfast.

“Be careful booking activities through the hostel concierge. Do your price checking online, or book online or by phone directly. Otherwise they hike up the price and take a commission.”
