Clean dorm with clean bathroom. Great location. Helpful staff. I would stay again. Great value for the price. Ron
The hostel was clean and simple, in a good location. There were very few people in our hostel as it is slow season (we were hoping to meet more people). We unfortunately didn't meet Alonso until the last day. He was very friendly and very helpful, however the other staff was not nearly as kind or as helpful. We wish we could have met him sooner.
This is the best hostel, Alonzo was the most gracious host I have ever met, very helpful and Bryan was the coolest guy I have ever met. I have met a lot of amazing people here and the environment allowed for it, definitely recommend it to everyone I meet.
If you want to sit in silence past 10 o'clock, this is the hostel for you! They have a ZERO tolerance noise policy after this time. You are not allowed in the common areas or kitchen even if you are sitting on your phone in silence. We had major issues with the evening security guard and these strict policies seriously impacted what could have been a great stay at the hostel. We voiced our concerns to the manager and they were met with hostility and rudeness. I would not recommend staying here.
Monteverde Backpackers is a good place to stay in Monteverde. It is close to the bus station and all the restaurants and travel agencies. The staff is really nice and helped us speak some spanish. also they showed us a sloth and its baby right in front of the hostel :)

Very Nice place the staff was helpful. They evev pointed out the mama and baby sloth in a tree nearby. I also liked the location next to a big super market
Great little hostel. Alonso is a legend and very helpful in booking tours etc. Bob the dog is also a champion! Highly recommend!
The shared kitchen needs a good cleaning, hot water, clean dishcloths, refrigerated cleaned out ( smelled terrible) trash cans were beyond fithly. The bed sheets were so old they were thread bear with no elastic remaining. You ended up sleeping on the plastic mattress
