We stayed in a private room (nr 18) with great view and a sloth just in front of the house. Sergio, the host, and also researcher of almost all living things there, was more than enthusiastic about the wildlife in the surrounding area. We took a nightwalk with him and found interesting creatures like tarantula's, owls, actually moving sloths, scorpion... More

The hostel was great but my friend left her kindle under her pillow, rang first thing that morning and they claimed nothing was found. Ruined what was otherwise a lovely stay :) It was also quite expensive.

I stayed in a private room/cabin for a couple of nights and it was excellent. The room was very clean and comfortable; the rain falling on the tin roof accompanied by crickets and frogs was the greatest sound to sleep to. This place is literally in the forest and a 3-5 minute walk to stores and town. I ran in... More

Monteverde Hostel Lodge is a hidden jem! What's neat about this place is it's hidden beneath the main street in a semi-wooded area. It looks like the hostel is a wooden cabin! The front area is very clean and spread out with plenty of seating to relax. There's a bar area with a big screen TV to watch games or... More

I booked this trip back in February for a group of us, but we didn't travel until June. A couple of us upgraded to the mystic Forrest room, but our other friends booked the monteverde room. When we arrived we were told that a now fired staff member messed up on our reservation, and they did not have the mystic... More

This place is amazing! Anyone who comes to Monteverde should experience the beautiful and peaceful rainforest lodging. Sergio is extremely hospitable and will take you on an awesome night hike to see the wildlife of Costa Rica. He is a biologist by training and incredibly knowledgable. You will be in good hands!

We absolutely loved it. We stay another night than we planned. Clean rooms, I felt safe. Sergio, a worker there walked us to a restaurant that was cheap, he was also a very dedicated biologist who was super personable and coordinated night hikes. He made us feel welcomed very quickly. Stay here!

We were travelling around Costa Rica & we stopped here in July for 2 nights. It was really quiet, nice, clean place to stay.. But beware of the hidden costs. The breakfast cost $5 & when you take the zip line you have to pay $10 more to do the Super man..
