    I’ve been traveling for 2 months now and this was the best hostel I’ve stayed in. yorle , mau worked in the tourism industry for long so was seriously helpful with what tours to do in and around Monteverde and even booked them for me. The beds and linen were the most comfortable I’ve slept in since being at home. Hot water shower. Good WiFi. Delicious free breakfast. Prime location. All in all a perfect place to go relax and enjoy recuperating while enjoy the jungle and what it has to offer

Great place to explore Monteverde! very important this hostel complies with the protocols of Covid 19, this place that requires the use of a mask is very good

    Great location, in the center of Santa Elena, next door to Banco National, easy walking distance to restaurants/sodas, groceries . Our room was quiet, clean and comfortable, The staff happily answered any and all questions and made recommendations to make our visit stress free and great fun. They quickly booked our activities with the front desk computer the night before and told us what time to meet our bus or van in front of the hotel eliminating any parking hassle, delicious breakfast, brea

    I stayed in end of Dec during Covid and the hostel was empty. It’s a nice hostel with comfortable beds and hot water. Mauricio is a very kind person and gave me great info about tours in the area and transportation. The place is close to everything and is like 2 minutes from the downtown area of Santa Elena and 5 min walk from the bus terminal

    Clean, great location, and lovely staff but there is a lot of rules, the included breakfast is only between 7 and 8:30 and there is no proper communal common area, just the kitchen.

    I wouldn’t stay here again. The reception man appears to run a few a few hostels in the area, so he’s really never there. There’s also no gate on the place so anyone can wonder around if they pleased. They also forced me to pay in cash at the desk, which really bothered me (it also says cc’s accepted right in the listing). Airbnb or other hostels were only a few dollars extra, I’d look there

    Breakfast only until 8:30, kitchen opens from 10 so cannot eat in the hostel between these hours. No staff in hostel past 9pm, and no way of contacting. (I tried 4 numbers and texted) no answer. We left food in the fridge and as we were leaving early we couldn’t get it until the staff member reluctantly opened the fridge for us. At 9:02 a lady (not a guest) came out her room and told us to be quiet even though it says curfew at 9:30. It’s almost like they don’t know what a backpackers hostel is.
