I cannot say enough about how AMAZING my stay at Monteverde Hostel Lodge was. I fed bananas to wild monkeys on a suspension bridge five feet from my room. Need I say more? The rooms are new & legit, they have hot water!, the reception area is charming. The chair/hammocks outside your room are the perfect spot for relaxing and... More

If you want to see wildlife from the comfort of your hotel balcony, stay here. I would never stay anywhere else if I went back. It is the only hotel that is right in the middle of the rainforest. We saw monkeys 2-3 times a day. You cross a suspension bridge to get to your room. Each room has a... More

The Monteverde Hostel Lodge was one of my best experiences in Costa Rica. I was able to feed monkeys in the morning and then hike in the rainforest at night. The staff was extraordinary and I spent much time in the lobby with the manager, Sergio. The walk to the rooms alone was beautiful across the suspension bridge. Make sure... More

Staying at the Monteverde Hostel Resort was incredible. The staff was friendly, the people were great. There was a huge stainless communal kitchen and the rooms were beautiful hardwoods. We had full access to town but were in the jungle. We fed monkeys everyday and went on a guided night walk on hostel grounds with Sergio, the coolest, most knowledgeable... More

This place is surreal. You walk across a suspension bridge to your room where you're very likely to see some monkeys. I fed monkeys and took Sergio's tours around the property which are my most highly recommended things to do in Monteverde. I could have never left the property and my expectations of the area itself would have been well... More

I wrote this review while keeping in mind that this is a hostel, and not a 5 star hotel. This place was great! From the moment we walked in, we had absolutely great customer service. Our bus got us into town early, so our room was not ready. The girl behind the desk told us we could leave our bags... More

Upon arrival we met Sergio who is passionate about what he does. If you want a night tour of the area do it here. Having a biologist who knows everything and loves sharing is an absolute treat. The rooms are great, clean, great size and exactly what you're looking for. When I come back to Costa Rica I am making... More

I really liked this hostel. We had a double room which was very big and nice. Liked the wooden style of the furniture and the look of the whole hostel. Our room was close to the reception which we could reach through a plank bridge. We unfortunately couldn't see the monkeys at breakfast. Breakfast itself was also very good. Centre... More

The staff is helpful and friendly. They can easily book a variety of tours for you if you ask and sometimes you are able to get extra benefits when you book through the hostel. Since the hostel is in the cloud forest, you can book a nike hike with one of the hosts, Sergio, who is extremely knowledagable. Location is... More

The place is great, near the center of the town. The staff is helpfull and they can easily book a trip for you. The rooms are in the jungle around the main building of the hotel. They are in the small bungalows. Its nice to spend time there.
