we had a lovely time here, helpful booking stuff and super close to everything. The staff are super strict about no noise after 10 though.. so they kick everyone out which is a bit sad if you want to just chill out and chat over a drink. They were also pretty rude to friends of ours who came to see our hostel, I think the staff need to chill out, but apart from that it was lovely. the free breakfast included eggs you cook yourself, a chocolate cereal fresh fruit and coffee

Although helpful staff they were not very good at calculating the right change so be sure to double check they have added things up right. It was easy to arrange tours and conveniently located in the small town. The kitchen was fine but very small. The dorm was very comfortable, although the bathroom is not the cleanest I have seen. A good base for going to the cloud forest but I wouldn't stay longer than a couple of nights.

The staff was very unable to count and to give the right amount of money back. Breakfast is just do-yourself and the kitchen is ok equiped. The rooms were tiny but clean. The shower had hot water but there was a lot of mould in the bathroom.

We spent 2 nights here. Unfortunately our first impression when we walked into our room was a horrible damp smell (possibly from people's wet clothes after hiking) and then one of the guys we shared a room kept us awake snoring, we tried to wake him numerous times but couldn't so we slept on couches in lounge room. We were then moved the second night, which is a pain mid stay but a relief after snoring guy!! Kitchen and dorms are basic, hot water shower is good. Definite younger crowd though.

Hi, Is a backpacker's and if you decide to share a room with people, you know what you are doing because is a dorm room and if you book for your own private room, will not have that problem. Thanks!

Fantastic hostel with s great family vibe. There was always people in the common areas and staff to chat to. Lots of different tours can be easily organised through the helpful staff. Location was great, next door to a super market and very close to town. Highly recommend!

Such a good place to stay, right in the centre. The couple that run it are so helpful and lovely, excellent knowledge for trips and activities. Hot showers with excellent pressure plus you get breakfast of cereal, fruit, toast, coffee and eggs any type you want as you make them yourself. Awesome hostel

Loved this place! We made so many friends here and loved the staff. They provided several tours in Monteverde which were great. We also loved the big kitchen everyone could use to make dinners and loved that they provided breakfast. Would HIGHLY recommend!

Decent small-ish hostel. Alonso was great at sorting tours and giving out info etc., breakfast was basic but plenty if you wanted it. Decent areas to relax in and pretty clean, beds were comfy and nice to have a bathroom in the dorm

We booked a private room with a private bath. The accommodations were perfect. We took advantage of the owner's knowledge of the area, tours, bus routes, etc. The location was perfect, not on the main street in Monteverde but a short walk, beside a grocery store too. I dropped off my laundry after 10 days of traveling, and for $7 it was washed,dried and folded, in less than 6 hours! When we go back, we will stay here again!
