We were disappointed to due several things we did not expected. - it is difficult to get there by GPS. If you take the Coordinates from the booking confirmation you arrive at the former location of the hostel. - they only accept cash, although they indicate payment by credit card in the internet. The only place on our tour we... More

A group of twelve of us spent the night here and I highly recommend it. We booked through expedia but confimed directly w/the hostel as well. We needed a place that was inexpensive, comfortable, and met our needs of wanted to visit Monteverde on a budget. Stephanie - our contact via email - was very responsive with all of our... More

This place is pretty great. The location in the jungle is phenomenal. Most are like little cabins, and some are seriously out surrounded by pure cloud forest. We had the same problem as a few other reviewers, though. We booked on Orbitz (a month before our trip), but when we arrived they had "accidentally overbooked". They blamed the problem on... More

I thing it is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it. The white faced monkeys come out on the swinging bridge in the morning and other... More

We arrived and stayed for one night. Front desk service was quick, efficient and friendly - we were shown to our room (private with ensuite) and booked the Night Walk tour. The hostel is located in the city centre but remains private as it backs onto an immense property in the cloud forest. There is a canopy style hanging bridge... More

This is the best hostel we stayed during our 3 weeks trip around panama and costa rica. The hostel is nice situated in the jungle. The rooms are big and confortable. Shower is good. You can see some monkeys and other animals around the hostel. In the morning we had a scorpion in our room, wich was a great experience.... More

This is a really neat property; just like it claims, the buildings back right up along the cloud forest, and we even had to walk across a short canopy walk-style bridge from the main building to get to our room. Our building had a wrap-around porch with hanging chairs outside each door to enjoy nature. Also, since we took the... More

We very much enjoyed Monteverde, so much so that we (after our first two days staying at the Manakin Lodge--a great hotel; check my other review on that), extended by another two days and moved closer into the town to Monteverde Hostel Lodge. We booked the "Santa Elena room" via Orbitz, but unfortunately the front desk had said they never... More
