    Monteverde Backpackers provided a great space for meeting other travelers and experiencing Costa Rica's cloud forests. The staff is incredibly helpful with book any excursions you want as well as fostering a sense of family among the guests. I would highly recommend staying here if you're in the area.

    Really cool hostel, looks like a shed from the outside but really nice and cosy inside. Very good location and value for money. The rooms are clean and the staff are friendly and want you to feel at home and have fun. WiFi is very strong also. The kitchen is adequate but could use some better equipment as the oven was broken. But would defiantly stay again as had a great time!

    Great staff, good vibes, solid beds. Bathrooms were a little gross but not much worse than anywhere else in Monteverde. Well located. Try the taco bar next door! Alonso and the rest of the staff were top notch and very helpful.

    Stayed for 2 nights. Staff was great and very helpful. Easy to book tours from the hostel. Easy to walk to from the bus station. Never got to have the breakfast as tours leave early in the day. Other travellers got a bit rowdy at night and often the dorm door was left open and unlocked. Bathrooms located right in the dorm room which was convenient.
