    Staff were very helpful in booking activities and were able to help with travel planning for our next destinations. Activities were priced slightly cheaper than other booking centers. Rooms are simple but clean. The daily breakfast is quite good and portions are comparable to most nearby restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place to other travellers.

    This hostel was fine. A lot of rules. But we had no problems and it was an ideal base in Monteverde. They recommended the best companies for tours which was handy since there’s a lot! Our private room was nice, clean and spacious.

    Really nice hostel in a very good location. Close to mostly everything. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Only thing is that the kitchen closed very early and the bins weren’t emptied in the bathroom.

    Overall the hostel was fine; good location, clean room and the staff can help you when you have questions. The thing I didn't like about this hostel is that you are not allowed to use the kitchen in the morning and evening (I think you can use it from 9.30 until 21.00 but I am not a hundred percent sure). I didn't have breakfast included in my booking and when you want to include it when you are there it costs 5 dollars for 1 breakfast which is a bit expensive in my opinion.

    Very well located! There is not a lot of common space to meet new people except from the kitchen. The staff were friendly.

    The dorm was clean and shower was great, first hot and powerful shower I’ve had in months. Staff were friendly. The only negatives is the kitchen is locked from 9pm (8pm on sundays) so you don’t have access to your food or any drinking water after that time. Also the breakfast isn’t worth the extra money, the breakfast was the worst I’ve had of this trip we got 1 piece of bread and a tiny amount of scrambled egg. Also isn’t really any communal area to socialise in.

    Experience massively soured by 3 things: 1: we booked a four bed dorm together but they put three in one room and one person in an another 2: we booked a private room for an extra night when our friends left, only to be told they didn’t have one available and would we mind going to another hostel for the same price (which we later discovered was cheaper, and they made no offer to reimburse the difference and no apology for the inconvenience!!) 3. They tried to overcharge us for the nights we did stay ther
