I really loved staying here. 5/5
As a solo female traveler it felt very safe, and it was centrally located so I could make a short walk if needed to the grocery store or coffee in the morning. Room was basic but I stayed a week and it felt like home.
The location is perfect, it’s close to all businesses and easily accesible by foot. 200 meters away from the bus station and just a few steps away from the Orchid Garden. The staff is very friendly and helpful to book tours and guiding you around the place. The rooms are simple but comfortable, i was traveling solo and got a private room with two beds all for myself for an amazing price. I really enjoyed my stay.
I spend one night in Pension Santa Elena and I had a beautiful expérience. Thé room was simple,clean and comfortable.
There is beautiful art in all thé hostel.
Thé atmosphere is really welcoming and friendly. Thé staff is so nice and Always ready to help or give thé best advice.
Thé location was perfect and there was all thé amenities nécessaire liké a shared kitchen and breakfast incluses. Thé garden is comfortable.
I definitely recommend to stay there.
The staff at this place were so friendly, welcoming and helpful! They gave good restaurant recommendations (especially if you’re on a budget and are sick of Casados). The room was cozy, and the shower was great. I especially loved the hammock outside my room! The only downside - not really their fault - was that there was a large group of extremely disrespectful students (high school or college?) staying in the dorms, who behaved as if no one else was staying there. Shouting across the property at 11 pm and 6 am for example. So maybe not the most quiet night? Also parking was fine when I stayed because there weren’t many guests with cars, but they only have about 5 spots. But still great value for money and I love little guesthouses like this where the staff go above and beyond to make you feel at home. Costa Rica is seriously lacking at places where you can get a comfy private room and hot shower and a nice traveler vibe at this price point, so I was thrilled to find Pension Santa Elena.
This place has such wonderful vibes! I stayed here for a little over a week and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to stay here. The owners, staff, and even guests were so friendly. I instantly felt like part of a family. The team managing the front desk and check-in were awesome! Super knowledgeable and always welcoming you with a smile. They had resources and answers for all of my questions and needs. The room was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and you can't beat the location or the price. I highly recommend this spot for anyone passing through Monteverde for short or long stays.
