super knowledgeable and friendly staff - the owner helped us with how to get a bus into nicaragua and it worked to a tee. great vibe in the hostel with other guests. breakfast is amazing (thank you!). they could do with more plates/bowls in the shared kitchen - once we had to wait for people to wash theirs in order to have something to eat off! highly recommend this hostel

Excellent value for money, the staff are super helpful (some of the best we've found in 3 months travelling), the breakfast is good and the bus to the park leaves from just over the road. The place isn't dirty but could use a bit of a scrub.

The most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, but an older man who I guess is the owner should take some charm-classes. Good breakfast!

Mixed reviews. They double booked us in a private room so put us in the last two dorm beds for the night (free of charge). Problem was they didn't know which beds we were supposed to take and just said 'take these and if someone is in them, tell them to move'. He also said it had been a busy day and he was tired. Overall we left feeling like an inconvenience to them, which is not cool. Positives were once we moved to the private is was good, and breakfast is great. Kitchen was dirty.

Great atmosphere, and the owner David is one or the nicest people you'll meet on your travels; he is very knowledgeable about Monteverde and will suggest interesting activities and hikes which can be done for free. The walls of the hostel are thin, and the fridge is too small; but the vibe of this place is unbeatable, as is the delicious breakfast every morning. Definitely the best hostel in Monteverde!

My biggest complaint was the location of the room -- which was by the street and quite noisy. But everything else exceeded expectations. The staff -- David, Emil and Sandro -- were very knowledgable, helpful and kind. Breakfast each morning was great. Casa Tranquilo does a lot with a little, and I would definitely stay there again.

Fun hostel with super helpful and friendly staff:)

No complaints other than that it was really loud. It's right on the main road going into Santa Elena, so there were always mopeds zooming back and forth. The walls are also really thin, so in our room on the first floor, the chatter in the common area upstairs still kept us awake. They do have quiet hours after 10ish though, we were just on an early schedule. Banana bread lived up to the hype. Great value for the money.

My stay at the Casa Tranquilo was amazing, the staff was friendly and helpful at all times; willing to book all tours for me and even negotiating a discount for their guests. Breakfast was the best that I got from any hostel in costarica and facilities are very well located near to a supermarket, WIFI worked perfectly fine even for business purposes and dorms were quiet and comfty. By far your best choice when visiting Monteverde :) . Regards from Mexico, Enrique 25.
