We liked our stay. Staff helped with booking a tour, gave us advice on what to do and see. Room was ok, nothing fancy but the bed was comfortable and I got a hot shower. The restaurant is currently closed but the breakfast served to guests in the morning is above average and by far one of the bests we've...

We loved this place from the first moment when we were received very warmly. Our room (double bed with little balcony) was small but very cozy with the wooden walls and the windows (one at the roof). Everything was clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the owner speaks various languages and he helped us with various decisions, for...

In general, I though the hostel was all right (clean and nice rooms) and the breakfast in the morning was actually excellent. However, the staff was just so disinterested, unhelpful, and passive that I didn't enjoy my stay there very much. They didn't even say goodbye when we left, even though the guy was right there and we tried to...

Really friendly and relaxed place to stay, we received so much information on all the activities in the area and were able to book all that we wanted. Felt so at home, could use kitchen and fridge. Fab free breakfast too. Would highly recommend it!

Loved my stay here. The people that worked here are so friendly, I got to see a less touristy side of Monteverde. It's not the quietest or upmarket, but it's my favourite hostel for the atmosphere. They have the best banana bread!

the Tico family who runs this hostel is great. They' ve been very welcoming, kind and helpful. The man who welcomes you at reception will provide you with very reliable info about the excursions and transport facilities. He can also speak many foreign languages. Rooms are clean and comfy, breakfast amazing. Definitely a top choice in Santa Elena!

We stayed just one night but was enough to understand that it is a hostel run by lovely, available and reliable people. They gave us a room with private bathroom even though we booked one with shared bathroom without changing the price. It is located 3 minutes from the main bars and restaurants of the town. Good hearty breakfast. I...

Despite great reviews and recommendation in the lonely planet, we didn't find this hostel met all the hype. Staff were friendly and helpful but the facilities themselves left much to be desired. We stayed in a private double room with shared bath and found it to be extremely loud from street noise as well as from adjoining rooms. The mattress...

I generally don't know what I'm doing one day to the next so hadn't booked before arrival and was unfortunately only able to stay for one night as they were booked out on the second, but still went back to hang out with all the new friends I had made. I recommend booking ahead if you can because this place...
