This is a small hostel, but a great place. Alfonso is really friendly and happy to help with anything you may need. The location is great, a 2 minute walk to the center of town. It did also have the best and hottest shower I've had while being in Costa Rica!

I love this Hostel and Alonso who runs it has an excellent staff and his cute puppy Comanchee, will be very happy to greet you. If Alonso offers you to have a barbecue grill with him I totally recommend it we had so much fun! When I return to Monteverde at December of this year I will stay in this hostel again. I felt very welcome to be here and I was very comfortable here and it is right around the corner from the grocery market to get more supplies for more barbecue grills!!!!!!! Further I would add that it is very close to a lot of really cool things the zip line tour or the Monteverde cheese factory is not too far away. The canopy tours all day and the barbecue grill with Alonzo at night was the best birthday I've ever had. Thank you Alonso!

We loved our stay at monteverde backpackers. Alfonso (head of staff) was great value and helped us organise everything from transport to tours, recommendations of where to eat, where to go running, local history and even introduced us to the local music scene!
The room, well, entire place felt secure and safe with a nighttime guard, quiet hours after 10pm, free computer and fast wifi and great location in the town. Dont be put off by the quiet time though, plenty of opportunity to party with Alfonso leading the way, maestro of his own bar and vicious card player.
If nothing else convinces you, go to meet the french poodle who lives outside and provides humorous hours of entertainment.

Room Tip: 4 bed dorms are clean and comfy with great, hot, pressurised showers!

its a small quaint hostel, a little old, but still a great find. the staff was very helpful on booking excursions for us, the showers are very hot and awesome.
bunk beds are a little thin and the pillows are worn out, but can you complain for 9 bucks a night?
the dog is SOOOO awesome, loved playing with him, a local band came over on Saturday night and played music for a few hours, awesome entertainment!

We stay in the hostel for two nights. Our double room with bathroom was very comfortable and clean and the hot shower was amazing (especially after long walk in cloud forest)
Staff very friendly and helpful in booking any activities or just giving info about what to do in Monteverde
