The hostel is run by very friendly women, the rooms are clean and the showers are very nice with hot water. Breakfast is included and is very tasty, very close to all shops and restaurants in centre of town.

Yorle also helped us with our trip to Montevarde and then our onward travel. We also had our laundry done there. It was an excellent place to...

Stayed two nights after showing up to town late and my first choice hostel being fully booked. Decent sized rooms and a standard breakfast too. Owner was a bit rude to me when I said I'd booked tours with my mates at another hostel.. And when she saw me take my laundry elsewhere too. Also tried to charge me for...

Great breakfast with unlimited tea and coffee, good central location, helpful staff and tour agency, the ability to book all your adventures at one place, good deals for those adventures, and tidy rooms.

Super clean, super friendly, super comfortable, super great location! Everything a backpacker could hope for. The breakfast is delicious, and the owner is overwhelmingly helpful. - and not just with the stuff she would get a commission for. I would highly reccomend for anyone traveling to Monteverde.

Fellow backpackers, I urge you to avoid this hostel. Mounteverde has plenty of better options for your backpacking needs. Yorle is the owner of this tiny hostel in the main triangle of Santa Elena. We had come from La Fortuna and was recommended this hostel by another traveler(not sure why). We had called Yorle 2 days before we arrived to...

Large room which was immaculately clean. Owner (Yorle) was very friendly and helpful. Facilities were good. Breakfast was nice too. We needed to cancel a tour at the very last moment, and Yorle made sure that our money was fully refunded. Overall, a very satisfactory experience for a backpacker hotel.

Cleanest hostel I've stayed in CR so far! Private bathroom for each 4-bed dorm, great breakfast daily! Yorle is extremely efficient - got me onto a night walk tour the same evening when I arrived at 5.40pm!! Booked a few more tours through the hostel - high quality and fairly priced. Good atmosphere and met great people at the hostel!...
