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!

Wonderful hostel! It's like a cabin in the woods once inside. Comfortable seating/communal area with TV. Clean kitchen area for everyone to use. Beds were so comfortable, and each room has its private bathroom. Bob the dog is the greatest! The owners were so helpful with all of our questions. They also have cheap prices for booking adventure tours. Highly recommend!

Bob the dog was awesome. My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in a private room. The location is right in town with several restaurants, shops, and tourism places within walking distance. Alonso and Johanna were great at the front desk, helping with tours and giving general advice. We booked a few tours through the hostel and had no problems. My only complaints are that the bed in the private room is super squeaky and the window doesn't have a full curtain. Overall, wonderful place.

Definitely one of my favourite hostels ever! The atmosphere was amazing, so amazing that people from other hostels came over to hang out with us! In saying that, there are two doors that need to be opened in order to reach the rooms, meaning that early sleepers are still guaranteed good rest! Also, amazing hot showers!
