Monteverde Hostel Lodge is definitely one of the best hostels in Santa Elena. My friend and I stayed there for a couple of days and were impressed. It was clean and the setting could not be beat. It's situated at the end of a short dirt road which makes it feel like it's in the middle of the forest when... More

First off, this place was amazing. I went with my girlfriend, but this would be an excellent location for friends and family as well. I highly recommend it and fully intend to return one day. The (beautiful) rooms are right on the edge of the forest and you get to cross a hanging bridge between the main lobby/common area and... More

I rarely write reviews of places I've stayed. Generally, this is because most places fail to leave much of an impression on me; in order for me to review, a place had to be either a nightmare or extraordinarily wonderful. This place definitely falls into the second category, and I had to make sure I got a review in for... More

I loved my stay in Monteverde. This Hostel doesn't feel like a hostel at all and it's tucked up in the cloud forest which makes it even better. The rooms are spacious (especially for being a dorm) and the bathroom and showers are really nice as well. With hot water! The common area is very large and great for lounging... More

This hostel was suggested to me by other travellers and I was really more than satisfied after visiting it. It is located in the middle of a well preserved rain forest really close to the town center. I also did the night tour with Sergio who is willing to help everybody with every possible problem that occors and was beyond... More

Hostel is in the middle of the rain forest even just 5 minutes to the center. At our arrival we were welcome by sergio, the host. He is a biologist and he knows everything about monteverde and costa rica. He helped us to book some of the tours. We did the night tour with him. This tour with sergio is... More

The beds were comfy and the scenery was amazing - so beautiful! The kitchen is massive and the bar and community lounge is quite pretty and cozy. The... More

I spent 5 nights at this beautiful Hostel in the heart of Santa Elena. By far the best place to stay in the entire town. Centralized location with great restaurants, grocery store, and bank within walking distance. The lodge is located in the middle of a beautiful forest and offers night hikes, an enormous community kitchen with access to wi-fi... More
