    Excellent Location and incredible Staff. Ro was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I definitely plan to return and learn more from Ro and spend more time in the area.

    Absolutely amazing place. The front desk staff were incredible. The kitties were an unexpected bonus. I was very sad to have to leave.

    Both front desk staff are so welcoming and super helpful. They answered all questions I needed about the best and even cheapest way to get around. I’ve read reviews about no lockers in the rooms but if you’ve traveled in enough hostels, you run across that from time to time and you just adapt to it (like lock your bag and sleep with your valuables on you). Loved that there’s more single beds than bunks here!

    I really enjoyed staying here. Dunia and Emilio were extremely kind and helpful throughout the whole process. I loved the atmostphere of the grounds as there were nice hammocks, the cloud forest surrounding, and a pretty waterfall garden type of area. The rooms were safe with locked doors and I was a solo traveler and never felt unsafe. The rooms set up was also comfortable with a bunk bed and some single beds. There is a security guard there overnight which is helpful and adds to safety.

    No lockers and not really a social backpackers atmosphere, bar was pretty much empty throughout the entire time. Good location though, nice hammocks, very clean facilities, well-equipped kitchen and dorms without bunk beds!!

    The hostel is beautiful and very well kept. However lacks any atmosphere. The staff are very helpful and the location is great.

    The location for this hostel was perfect, right in the center of Santa Elena and very close to restaurants and taxis. I may have been the only person staying there due to Covid but the setup and facility seems like it would be a good place for socializing during normal times. The staff was very friendly and helpful with activity recommendations

    Very Good

    Great location in a nice quiet area. Good kitchen facilities, great if you want to save some money by self-catering, although it's not always clean and seems like the staff rely on guests to clean up after themselves. One of the few hostels we stayed in that didn't have lockers which was annoying, also didn't provide towels. Tour desk is convenient and helpful, but recommend doing your research about Monteverde activities in advance because it can be overwhelming with so many options.

    THIS HOSTEL IS COMMITTING TAX FRAUD. They are lying on this app about payment methods. They will email you after booking saying they only accept cash. They made me walk to the bank to get cash so they don’t have to pay credit card fees and taxes. S***t place as well.
