    We loved our stay at Vista del Golfo. You actually have a great view onto the golf from the back deck. The location is great, quick 5 min walk to town. The staff was verry helpful and had the ability to set up reservations with any attraction around town which included pick up and transportation in most cases. Everything was kept spotless clean and well maintained. Our shower had plenty of hot water, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was great. I am sure we will return in future.

    This was a cool, quiet hostel. The best part was the amazing free breakfast served by nice people. You have a choice between a “tipical” or “continental” breakfast with coffee and orange juice. We had the private room which had hot water. The view from the windows were great of the trees. The staff was kind and helpful in booking transfers and excursions. The downside is the WiFi is not very strong in the rooms upstairs, so it would not connect as easily as if you were closer to the reception.

    #1, they have an amazing free breakfast. It's good enough to be the reason to book here. The dorms are nice and big. Great common area and kitchen. It was easy to meet other travelers. Within walking distance of the town. Limited parking. Average wifi. The staff are very accommodating. It's hard to get hot water out of the showers though. The only way to do it is to have them on a very low water pressure. Would still recommend.

    This hostel is perfectly located. The staff were very friendly and gave us good recommendations for what to do while we were in Monteverde. There were only three of us at the hostel the night we were there, but that was perfect for us since we were sleep deprived and wanted to wake up early. It was a cold, rainy, Thursday night, so there may be more of a social atmosphere at other times. The breakfast was amazing!! The hammocks were relaxing. Only complaint: no hot water.

    I'm not usually one to write a review but I felt this needed to be said. Staff were unfriendly. Their answer to many requests was always "no". Ridiculously expensive laundry service and was told it was the same price everywhere. It was not. Damp and meldew smell throughout the hostel.
