“Service and value are great”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Cabinas Eddy is one of the best places to stay when you want to visit the cloud forest. It's just outside the center of Santa Elena (about 2 min. walk). This makes that it's really quiet at night. Rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast is outstandig! First you get fresh fruits and after that you can choose from 4 or 5 different meals. Everything is made fresh, so it's hot when it's served to you at the table. Freddy (the owner) is very helpful. You can book your tours at the front desk. The bus that takes you up to the cloud forest stops right in front of Cabinas Eddy.

Freddy was a great host. The rooms are a good value and he makes a spectacular breakfast. The breakfast is probably a $10 value in itself. Very impressed with this hotel for the price. The location is a short walk to downtown St. Elena, so it is also nice in the sense you don't have to drive in the evenings.

Right in the centre of Santa
Elena just 2 minutes from a good supermarket. The room was clean, the shower powerful and hot. There was coffee available throughout the day and a great choice of breakfast options. The owner got up early to make sure we could have breakfast before a 7am start for Monteverde. Great internet and a very knowledgeable host.

This was our favorite hostel that we stayed at in Costa Rica. The owner and his family were very friendly. He organized our zip line tour and transportation onto Tamarindo. Location was good. The best part was the breakfast. It was made to order. We both got the breakfast burritos and they were delicious. I would recommend staying here.

We stayed at eddy b&b for 3 nights. Rooms are clean with tv, mini fridge ,free wifi great breakfast included ( no fan or a/c but at least when we stayed there, there was no need). Freddy and the staff were super nice and helpful. Freddy offers wonderful guidance on the activities around monteverde and some discounts for certain tour operators. We took the coffee tour and a sunset horseback riding trips and enjoyed both.
The place is located just across the st from the bus that takes you to the monteverde reserve ( most other transportation for tours picks you up at the b&b). Also there is a supermarket within 2 min walking distance and a further minute walk to the village's Main Street. There is a communal kitchen available for use if you want to cook for yourself.
We couldn't be more happy about our stay with eddy b&b and to top it all it was great value for money.

This is a review to say a big thank you to the staff at Cabinas Eddy. Not just for the excellent standard of accommodation provided (hot water, tour advice, wifi, comfy rooms - all fantastic) but for the patience and helpfulness of the staff. My partner and I needed to leave monteverde quite early the next morning of our arrival. Even before 7pm the staff were on the phone desperately trying to organise a transfer for us, which at the very last minute (they only had an hour) they found one! Following our whirlwind rush to pack, I left my towel and a very expensive leather jacket on the back of the door. 2 days later I realised what I'd done and contacted Cabinas Eddy. they'd held it aside for me. I contacted our transfer company which not only offered to deliver the jacket to our new destination in Manuel Antonio, but also for free. I am so grateful to both companies for all their help and for wearing a smile the whole time despite our mistakes! Thank you!

I can't say enough good things about Cabinas Eddy and Freddy (the owner). The hotel was great - kind of an atmosphere mix of hotel and hostel. They have quite a few tables as you enter that people will hang out at, chatting and eating. The breakfast (that is included) is really tasty - especially the banana pancakes. The mattress appeared to be foam (comfy!) and had a really interesting blanket (with an eagle on it) that made the place feel a bit more like home.

Unlike some of the reviewers, we didn't have any problems with the water pressure or temperature of the showers. Cabinas Eddy actually was the best shower (warmest and most pressure) of all 4 places we stayed in Costa Rica (which included a 5 star resort). It may be because he updated or because we were there during the warmer season.

Freddy is amazing - he is possibly the most patient, kind person on the face of the planet and he seems to know everything you could want to know about the surrounding attractions. He gave us a map when we arrived and highlighted the tours/attractions he'd heard the most positive reviews on. His family is also present fairly regularly and quite sweet. We did not have the pleasure of interacting with them quite as much as we did with Freddy.

Lastly, another reason to stay at this place - fairly near by (~100-200 meters) sloths seemed to like to hang out! We were even able to see a mom and baby sloth!
