This place has an awesome friendly, "family" vibe. One of the staff members, Mariana, cooks a family sized dinner for everyone who signs up almost every night. It's a great way to meet everyone an very affordable. We felt very at home here. The only complaint is the bathrooms are not that clean but they work fine.

Has good spacious communal areas and kitchen with hammocks round the back. Staff are really helpful and recommend trips and places to eat. Also approx 10 second walk from the shop and 2 mins from the main bus stop. They are also good at helping you organise your travel to your next spot. Rooms have lockers and you are also given a key to the room. And they have Bob the dog as extra security. Great place to stay.

We got what we paid for, so we are pleased:) However, we did leave a towel and hat behind. Interbus collected hat, but towel was never given back to driver although it was there when we had called to make arrangements to get it back.

Hi Nichole, We give towels for private rooms and also for the dorms, we do have enough towels, and believe me, we have enough towels and if we had give passports, wallets, and a lot other things back to people, so why we will keep a towel? when you travel, you have to make sure you pack everything, we found a hat and we sent it back to you, so do not blame other ones for your mistakes.

It's a nice hostel, with a TV Room, average breakfast and nice helpful staff. The only thing I didn't like were the moldy walls.

If you decide to stay at Monteverde Backpackers, chose the 6 bed dorm! It is much bigger and more comfortable than the 4 bed dorm (+ it has 2 bathrooms)! The 4 bed dorm was very small, there is not a lot of space..but nevertheless a good hostel and its absolutely value for money! The best: a great breakfast included!

The staff was super helpful in giving me directions to the attractions, the bank, etc but they were also just cool in general. I stayed in a private room but it was a really social environment. The Kitchen is small but clean and the breakfast they serve is great. There's a bus stop directly across the street, and a super market as well. Highly recommend this Hostel :)

Great location, next door to supermarket. Good breakfast, nice to be able to make own eggs. Manager Alonso incredibly helpful regarding tours. Private double was very small but had strong shower with hot water, comfy bed. It's a small hostel, not a party hostel at all, so has a relatively quiet atmosphere. Easy to meet people at breakfast though as one big table.

This place is right next to the supermarket and a 1 minute walk from the night life, bus stop, and best local food around. The staff is super chill and helpful.

The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the hostel was relatively quiet after the quiet hours, and the location just on the outskirts of town was good.

This was a nice little hostel really close to the main triangle into town. Pretty cheap from what I remember and there's free breakfast! Staff is pretty knowledgable about tours and stuff to do.

Great stay in a lovely, homely, well looked after hostel. Thought it was dark to start with and wasnt keen but actually no windows in the dorms makes for a peaceful sleep not too hot. Good location, friendly staff and a nice place to come back to after a day walking - great dog and small but friendly communal area too. Our ensuite toilet broke and hostel were fast to fix. Thanks for a great stay!

Alonso and Bob (hostel dog) are Amazing! Alonso is kind and very helpful! The hostel is quite small and the breakfast is a bit lacking but okay. We stayed in a private room that was nice and had its own bathroom, but the shower didn't work well. Hostel was very quiet. Alonso made the experience worth it.
