Thank you to Yorle and Diego for all their help!! The staff are what make this place so amazing. I had a great stay here in December, this is an amazing hostel in a good location. The free breakfast was really nice as well, thanks Yorle.

Excellent value for money spent. Good advice on tours and things to do. Very good free breakfast, pancakes or omelett. Clean hostel (but kitsch decoration), kitchen ok but miss a left-over area for oil, spices, etc... Perfect location, close to the supermaket and town center. Professional staff, very kind, helpful and hospitable.

Our best hostel in CR !

A friend and I had one day to take in the Monteverde experience and owner was extremely helpful and took a sincere personal interest in our comfort and care. Private room had bunk, full on bottom and twin top and small table. Sound travels easily through walls, but owner very conscious of comfort of all occupants and politely yet effectively sees that the hostel is quite by bedtime. If just looking for a place to rest and get going again without extra pampering, this hostel is on the recommended list. Happy travels!

Room Tip: Did see the dorms, we were in a private room right next to the street. Can hear all conversations and traffic on road, but we were out most of the day and so tired getting back that it didn't really matter. If you are a light sleeper I'd ask for something not near street.

As mentioned in other reviews, the rooms were comfortable, water was hot, free breakfast + coffee were good, staff was friendly and helpful, and prices were very low (I paid $8 per night for a dorm bed). I would stay there again.

HOWEVER I wish the staff treated us less like a walking dollar sign. Before we had a chance to unpack and take a shower, the staff was already pitching us to do ziplining and guided hikes. There were definitely a few other times during our stay when I felt like I was being upsold. I definitely understand that hotels and travel agents make commissions by booking events for their guests, but the folks here need to ease off a bit.
