    I LOVED this hostel. Edison is very helpful and very laid back! It was like staying over at someone's house. I was able to get laundry done for a fee, they had a hot shower and kitchen available for use, a beautiful yard with a pool, a TV, wifi, and the place was impeccably clean! It's all open to the outside but it was actually very nice to feel the fresh air and hear the birds in the morning. It was very chill when I went and I would definitely stay here again.

    A gem in the Jungle. Clean and beautiful the small hostel has a homely and very friendly atmosphere, the shade of the garden as well as the cooling effect off the pool are perfect to recover from a walk or tour. The cooking lessons are very good and a lot off fun, and the staff also randomly made us food one night before!

    Staying at howler monkey was one of the highlights of our trip. Tucked away from the main drag of La Fortuna but close enough to walk or take an Uber for less than $2. The owner is super chill, welcoming and made everyone feel like the hostel was their home. We were able to book all of our excursions and transportation through the owner as well! You will not regret staying here, this place has the best hippie vibes! Totally a full pura vida experience! Will definitely return here.

    Our 4 night stay at Howler Monkey was fantastic. Edison’s hospitality helps create the feeling of home. It was simple to check in, plan excisions, etc etc. The vibe was open and welcoming, and we met plenty of great people along the way! Thanks Edison for creating such an amazing experience!

    We loved our stay at Howler Monkey, such a cool location right in the jungle - we even saw a hummingbird when we were by the pool. Esteban was friendly and very helpful with booking taxis etc. Comfy mattresses, a nice crowd of people and the amazing scenery made for a great stay!

    Edison was a great host and you can tell he’s happy to have guests again after 2020! The hostel is actually a 25-30 min walk from La Fortuna but there is a small convenience store and a couple of restaurants only a 5-10 min walk away. Overall the hostel could have been cleaner, especially the kitchen, but it was not bad for a night. Scenery is great and very relaxing! Would consider staying here again if I were driving.
