It was very comfortable for us to stay at this hostel. Close to everything in the town square, and with good advice from the staff, we had a very good time hiking in the cloud forest and taking a couple of extra tours.
Really happening hostel (but quiet enough after 10pm) with lots of fantastic & friendly information. We took a guided tour of the Curi-cancha reserve with Ronald & saw quetzals & a toucan. Amazing. The night tour was also really good (although slightly bigger groups of...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.
