    Absolutely loved my stay at this hostel. The staff (Alonso in particular) was amazing extremely helpful and guided me to some incredible experiences as well as how to exactly get to my next destination. Clean comfy beds, towels, hot water, full kitchen, etc - everything you need. Location is very convenient to supermarkets, shopping, attractions. There is a security guard all night which was great also! Stay here!! You won’t regret it!

    We had a fantastic experience with Monteverde backpackers. From the get go, we received a welcoming letter letting us know about things we should know about, types of tours in the area, times they leave and the cost. It’s a nice atmosphere with a great location. Alonso was particularly helpful and accommodating to us in arranging tours. You can book a tour pretty last minute from the front desk and a shuttle will come get you from the hostel! Would definitely recommend staying here.

    I enjoyed my stay at Monteverde Backpackers. Small hostel where most guest know one another. The atmosphere is dependant on the guest staying. Some nights many people were in the common area, some nights there wasn't. Facilities wise, the beds were nice, the six bed has two wathrooms which is awesome. Only complaint about facility is that it would be nice if there was a plug and light for each bed. The staff were both really nice and knowledgeable about activities in Monteverde.

Things to Note

Check in anytime between 11am and 9pm, check out time between 5am and 10am.

Front desk open from 7 am until 9 pm, after 9pm we have a security guard all night long, so people who are staying in our hostel can come in and out anytime.

Quiet hours is after 10pm, whoever if you wants to go out, drink, party and have fun, that's ok with us out side of our Hostel, but we want everyone when they come back to the hostel, to be quiet and go to bed, not to be noisy because other people will be sleeping by then.

please email us in case you need to modify your reservation / Hostel will keep your room until the arrival time chosen at the time of booking. If you are arriving late, please contact the hostel directly. Otherwise your reservation may be cancelled.

We don't accept over 40 years old in a dormitory room, in private rooms are more than welcome.
