I stayed at this hostel for 3 days. It's quite small, but really "gemütlich". The owners Johanna and Alonso are very friendly and helpful. The kitchen is small but there's everything you need. Breakfast is included, there's eggs, toast, cereal, nutella, milk, bananas. The place is perfect for meeting new people, you almost instantly feel at home. There's a livingroom... More

Breakfast was supplied, coffee, eggs and toast with a big kitchen for you to cook in. There was no air-con, but internet was good. I... More

This place was one of 3 I stayed in Monteverde and I really enjoyed my stay. It covered all the basics for me i.e. good wifi, lockers and hot showers as well as being clean. The owner is a great guy and really helpful with tours and transport etc. They have a cute dog called 'Bob' who's part french poodle.... More

Monteverde Backpackers was a very nice place to stay. We traveled with a car so it was very easy to access. The room was clean. There was no AC and the window closed only enough to keep a few bugs out. Breakfast was provided: toast, coffee, bananas and peanut butter. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed at two...

This is an awesome place to stay, with a lovely host. My girlfriend and I had our own little cabin at the top of the area. It was perfect. Sloths and monkeys clambering about right above our heads. The nighttime walk was also interesting. Great location, would thouroughly reccomend.

I enjoyed my time at this hostel and met some great people whilst here. The hostel was clean and well kept and the owners were very friendly and helpful, however unfortunately their security guard let them down a bit. Myself and two others checked out very early one morning to head to the bus station, the guard rang a taxi... More

The dorm had beds that were low to the ground. The shower wasn't that great but I've seen worse. The young guys working up front played loud music until midnight while flirting with girls right outside our dorm window. None of us could sleep and wanted to point out that the sign says quiet hours from 10-7 but seeing as... More

Alonso is the best host and they give you the best deals on tours. Hostel is very clean and offers free breakfast. Next to the supermarket, great restaurants, and almost always has a sloth in the tree outside!
