Breakfast alone makes this place the most economical place in monteverde. Stay here

Great place to stay. Good location. Nice clean dorms. My only complaint were that the beds in room 6 were VERY uncomfortable, you could feel every spring. My friend stayed in dorm 1 though and said the beds were fine. Really enjoyed the free breakfast. Kudos to the staff member that saved me from a spider.

Really nice, small hostel ideal for meeting fellow backpackers. The owner is really helpful on the reception and his dog, Bob, is awesome! Would definitely recommend it.

The Hostel was great. The people who ran the place were excellent and very helpful. If you had any questions or needed any help, they would help you out to the fullest.. The bathroom was kind of small but overall, I would recommend this hostel. It was in the center of town which was a great location.

Great place to chill after a long walk in the cloud forest. Really close to town if not to say it is in town.

Stayed there for a few nights and had an amazing time! Alonso and Johanna are super nice and great hosts. The place was clean, secure, and had a great atmosphere. Met so many amazing people there. Having breakfast included was so nice, and great value! Loved the place. The only thing is that the kitchen was a little dark at night when we were cooking dinner!

Finding how to get in there once we found the place and getting behind to park was the rough part. But we've had a great comfortable stay and enjoyed the location greatly. Super clean and cozy, would def recommend!

Great staff our first night - very helpful and full of ideas and insight on what to do around town. The second night the guy at the desk was quite the opposite, offered no helpful advice at all. Very clean facilities (kitchen, bath and bedrooms), was impressed. Very good value for money overall.

Hi, Thanks for the review, it is good that you let us know about the second night staff because the service always should be the same and help people as much as we can.

Appreciated the guard checking at night (and the reception guy) that everyone was back to the hostel, this is really great for women traveling alone. Super clean, and very friendly.

This was a great relaxed hostel. It is smaller so you can meet many of the people staying there as well. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Each room has a private bathroom and rooms were quite clean.

One word: Awesome! Really cosy, clean and comfortable, I would definitly recommend this place! Kitchen is big and well equiped (there is a supermarket right next to the hostel). Alonso and the staff are much fun and they are there to make your stay the best of all. They even did a BBQ while we were there!
