I traveled with my partner and the view of the room was amazing - room 15 - the room had a dinning room and two well dressed beds. The host of the hotel is so respectful and friendly, you feel you stayed at a friend´s home. Total return on investment, I wish other hotels learn from this hotel to have...

Great Room, they do have dorm but we went for a room, Very spacious. They also have small kitchen place with microwave and refrigerator. Since you are in Monteverde I believe you cannot escape the wind. Gusting winds at 50 MPH might not allow you to sleep.

Pretty cheap to stay here. Huge room with awesome views! They make breakfast for you and busses for excursions will pick up here. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and gave some great recommendations for things to do and places to eat.

Somewhat far (compared to other lodging) from the main triangle, but had a nice view. I stayed in the dorm, it was nice and dark, but also had no ventilation (not even a fan) so it was very muggy and damp.

The staff were great. They were very helpful in helping me to arrange tours in Monteverde and sorting out the buses to get to Nicaragua. The view from upstairs is great too with plenty of seats to set and chat to other guests.

I dearly enjoyed staying in the family-run hotel. All staff was eager to help and very knowledgable about bus connections, tours and general advice. They booked lots of tours and buses for me in advance; talking to other travellers I realised that the other places couldn't even provide the most simple bus info not to speak of a ticket! The...

Stayed for 4 nights. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. We booked several tours and onward transport and everything went smoothly. Paid $20USD per night for a double room which was good value. Shared bathroom - small but does the job. The common area / kitchen (not great) is right outside bedrooms so at times it was noisy but was always...

My partner and I visited for three days in March, we had a lovely time. The weather was more chilly than most of the guests expected, but we found the coolness comfortable. We arranged times for zip-lining, the night tour and a day off to visit the Santa Elena cloud forest. The morning when we were supposed to head out...
