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.

I went there for 3 nights and stayed for 6. This is not really a "hostel" but rather a small family ran hotel, and a wonderful family at that. The included breakfast is an awesome bonus. Tea or coffee, toast, eggs, cereal and fresh fruit. Clearly, one of the best and most complete free breakfasts to be had. The location...

Nice hostel, the rooms were fine, there were hot showers and a shared kitchen. Breakfast was included, maybe not the best och funniest breakfast but it was okay. The staff was adorable and so so nice! They helped us a lot, which restaurants we should try and how to go to Monteverde, and shuttle to LA Fortuna. Stay here!

I recently stayed in sleepers with two friends in a private room. It was by far the best value for money in Santa Elena, great for backpackers on a budget! Breakfast was also included and was really good. The family are so lovely and accommodating and very helpful with any queries we had. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

This hostel is a cute little place with a super friendly and welcoming couple who run it! We stayed for a couple of nights when we visited Santa Elena. The wifi was a little spotty on the floor we stayed on, but the main area was fine. We got some nice tips from the couple for different places and tours...
