    Loved it there! The staff and people living there were so open and friendly. The city itself is quiet but there are still possibilities to go out. Lots of activities you can choose from and the staff were always eager to help you. Would come back anytime!

    Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly! Helped us book tours and gave great advice for things to do in Monteverde and other cities we were visiting. The set up of the hostel was very conducive to meeting other people and we had our most fun on the trip the two nights at this hostel! Highly recommend!!

    Lovely hostel with very helpful staff. They book all the tours and excursions for you and you just have to request at front desk. Found it very easy to meet people to go on adventures with. The lockers were not very secure and the bathrooms could have been better maintained. Didn't really use the kitchen much but when I did I found it had everything you could possibly need.

    A nice little hostel, perfectly located in the centre of Monteverde. The owner is really nice and helpful, you can book all your tours and whatnot here. The shower is AMAZING, hands down the best I’ve experienced in Costa Rica. The beds are surprisingly comfortable too. My only small issue is there are very few toilets so you may have to wait sometimes. Recommended.

    Clean private room. Staff was helpful to book excursions, El Tigre waterfalls is a must! Breakfast in included but you have to cook it yourself. The location of the hostel is good, very close to a grocery store and close to some good restaurants. The hostel also has a communal ping pong table which is great!! Would stay there again.
