“Good location, nice place!”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

We stayed here three nights to explore the area of Santa Elena.

The hostel is centrally located and everything is within walking distance. The beds were comfy, the breakfast was nice! The rooms don't have air con, but you absolutely don't need it. At nighttime we appreciated a jumper or even a jacket when leaving for dinner...

The tours we booked through the hostel were good and professionally organized (we did the night walk, Cloud Forest Tour and the Don Juan Coffee Tour).

To get a good overview of the area two days are good, three days are plenty. Don't expect to see a lot of animals in the reserve. Too many tourists and too big area for them to hide. The coffee tour is very good and we were very impressed by a nighttime visit at the frog pond!

The value of this hotel cannot be beat. You get a nice room, breakfast, proximity to town, and the best staff ever! We really cannot say enough about how nice our stay was. Andres helped us book three last minute tours, was always so friendly, and helped us change our flat tire. We wish we had stayed longer and recommend this location for anyone going to Monteverde.

Monteverde was our second destination in Costa Rica (after San Jose), and we did not plan much on transportation, acitivities, and even some places to stay after Monteverde. Jose helped out on all of these, which enabled us to enjoy the rest of the trip without any hassle or worries. We stayed 3 nights in Camino Verde, and enjoyed our stay. Clean room, great breakfast, and more than anything --friendly help from Jose. Thanks for giving us great memory and wonderful impression to Monteverde.

Staying at Camino Verde was the best decision we could have made on our trip to Monteverde. The location was just a short walk to town, the property is beautifully decorated, and the views are incredible. During our stay we took a wildlife tour, coffee plantation tour, we went zip lining, and canioneering. All of these excursions were booked by Andre and Jose when we arrived at Camino Verde and they were all top-notch. They made our stay so stress-free and enjoyable. I strongly recommend you choose CV when looking for a place to stay in the cloud forest.

You really get a local flavor by staying in this BnB: its very small, with a great service and amazing location. Jose rocks! He was very accommodating and friendly and made sure we are all having fun. Honestly, if its not for him I would lower by rating :)
A few tips: there is no hot water - this is very typical for Costa Rica so be ready. I suggest you travel with your shampoo, toiletries, etc. - they provide only soap. Also, you dont have to book all the trips Jose suggests - you can shop around and find potentially a better deal. Just saying. However, he did help me to book all my entertainment. Make sure you do the zipline, Superman and Tarzan - awesome experience. Also, for the food and drinks go to bar Amigos just up the road.

I highly recommend this bed & breakfast. The service given was exceptional. The room was clean and accommodating. The view from the second-floor of the Pacific Ocean was gorgeous. The breakfast served as part of the package is excellent. The receptionist took my every concern very seriously and helped me satisfactorily in all cases. They went above and beyond in helping me make event arrangements and because of a medical emergency I needed to change my plans for the next night in a different town and they even helped me call that hostel to cancel those reservations. A++++ this hostel gets from me!

Room Tip: If you can afford the private rooms with private bath/shower, get the ones on the second floor with...

We were travelling with four friends in Costa Rica and this was by far the best hostel we visited. Super friendly and helpful staff; the owner Jose helped us book Canaopy and bungee incl. shuttle from the Hostel. The room was safe, clean and very nice with pretty wooden beds and our own bathroom. Also the nightly rate includes a great breakfast - you even have the choice between 4 or 5 different dishes. The kitchen is well equipped and also open for your own cooking. The common area is nicely furnished, feels homey and offers internet access as well as free coffee ALL day! Games and computer are also available to the guests. The location is convenient, close to a supermarket and the town but yet far enough to enjoy a quiet night. They also have a backyard for parking.

I have already recommended this place to several friends and if I return to Monteverde I will make sure to check in the Camino Verde!
