“Great Hostel to Meet Other Travelers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

This was a great hostel. The rooms were comfortable and the common room was a great place to meet people from all over the world. The free breakfast was really great and Andres and Jose were very helpful booking a hiking tour and canopy zip line. (Do Extreme Canopy for the best adrenaline rush.) The only frustration was that we had to pay cash for all of the tours and beers at the end of the weekend. Wish we could have used credit cards.

So glad we chose this bed & breakfast... we traveled to Monteverde on the bus from San Jose. We arrived at the Monteverde bus depot after dark and were worried about finding our hostel. To our surprise, someone from Camino Verde was waiting for us at the bus depot! After we got to the bed & breakfast, the owner gave us some very valuable knowledge re: traveling through CR.... our trip probably wouldn't have gone so smoothly if it wasn't for his help! Thank you Jose!! We got a private ensuite room... everything spotlessly clean. Some reviews on other traveling sites say the breakfast was bad... but i thought it was delicious! Fresh fruit, eggs, pancakes... all included in the low nightly charge. If you're looking for a place to stay in Monteverde, I highly recommend this bed & breakfast!

Camino Verde was a wonderful place to stay! It was clean, cozy, and they had a fabulous and free breakfast! Tea and coffee are served all day and you can use the kitchen to cook if you choose to. We had our laundry done there for $9 (big black trashbag full) and it was returned to us in less than 24 hours. The staff is helpful and speak English very well. They helped us book several excursions and were a great area resource. Definitely a great value for money!

The walk to town is not far, but is uphill and poorly lit. I did not feel Santa Elena was particularly unsafe, but thought this beared mentioning.

Also, check out the jewelry shop down the street! The prices are great and the jewelry is very cool, made out of seeds!! The man who owns the shop actually made a piece for me special.

My friends and I had an awesome experience at Camino Verde! The rooms and bathrooms were all clean. Breakfast was served each morning and was very tasty! The owner was helpful in arranging the various excursions and transportation and the reservations were able to be adjusted up to about an hour before they were scheduled without penalty. He has an iPad that can be used to surf the web or call to international for free. When I go back, I will definitely be staying here again!

We stayed there for two days. The staff was very friendly helpful with directions, transportation, tours, and recommendations. It was close to the main town, and not touristy...more of an authentic experience. Next to Candida's soda where the food was delicious, local, authentic, and cheap! Breakfast was included, made to order. Not just cereal or pastries, but eggs, pancakes, fruit, and coffee. We will definitely recommend this hostel to our friends!

clean rooms, clean bathroom. rooms were humid (no AC), but what do you expect you're in costa rica. the staff was super nice, helpful, gave us recs on tours, hiking, daytrips, even changed our money for us. breakfast was delish, and made to order (eggs, toast, fruit, pancakes, juice, coffee). we had a popcorn and movie night and they had recent movies in HD (we watched the avengers). Overall great experience, would definitely stay there again.

Stayed there for some days with my girlfriend. Very cool and cheap hostel, very nice helpful owner, breakfast included! Due to some reservation issues we got a bigger and nicer room for the same price. Friendly atmosphere!
