This place is very relaxing and the location is perfect for visiting both Santa Elena Cloud Forest and Monteverde Cloud Forest. Our room was small but we only slept there. It's more of a hostel than a hotel so you don't get toiletries (only one small soap) but we were fine with this as I travel with my own anyway. Very nice breakfast tacos. You get a 10% discount at Taco Taco but we actually didn't like that place that much, service was slow, food arrived cold and it was tasteless. The only thing I would change is offering real milk for coffees instead of the creamer (powder). Price is very good too. We would come back for sure.
This was our third time staying here. The rooms are clean and the shower great. The beds are comfortable and we sleep well there. Rebecca, the front desk staff, was excellent. We really love the breakfast too! 5 stars all around.
Great Staff, shop and social area! Rooms well maintained and affordable! Walking access to everything in town. Great location for amazing adventures on trails, zip lining thru, hanging bridges thru and above above the rainforest canopy and a great open gondola above it all to the continental divide (Carib and Pacific)!! Butterfly aviary, animal refuge and sooo much more.
I had never stayed in a hostel before, and this was a great first experience! We booked a 2 queen bed with private bathroom. The rooms are rustic and dated but clean. There was no thermostat in the room but they did provide an extra blanket for when the temperature dropped. Our room faced a beautiful courtyard area that I loved. I also loved the community living feeling. In the mornings I would walk the back way into the main part of the hostel that felt like a whimsical and eclectic cottage. It included a dining/family room area with reception and a community kitchen. The coffee was always fresh and the free breakfast was delicious and filling. Just a quick note- parking is limited so I would recommend calling ahead to see if you can reserve a spot. We were lucky enough to get…
Pension Santa Elena is a wonderful, clean hostel with a cozy atmosphere. The staff is very easy going, enormously helpful, and very. they organized all trips for us. the breakfast is very delicious and you can decide from three different options. it is right in the center.
