I really enjoyed this hostel. It's very close to the center of town but wasn't loud at night. The room was perfectly clean and very nice and comfortable. The staff and the owner, Yorle were so friendly and helpful with organizing our plans and giving directions when we were leaving. I highly recommend this hostel.

Nice location in the centre of town amongst all the action with nice and bright clean rooms and comfy beds. Yorke is a great host who used her local knowledge to book us some fabulous tours and adventures.

OK, so I decided to check out Monteverde due to a sudden change of plans in Costa Rica. And this hostel popped up on my phone as a choice. It was easy to book online (10% deposit) and just a 3 minute walk from the bus station. Good thing I did. Ronny and family were very friendly. The room was... More

It's a nice and simple place. Clean enough and well-managed. We were set up with some great adventure tours of the area (and the area is magnificent!) Big breakfast and friendly staff. It was chilly at night, and they were kind enough to lend me an extra blanket. :)

Stayed here for a few nights in march, the rooms are basic but clean, very well situated, you choose your breakfast each night by writing on a whiteboard. The hotel will arrange any trips you want to do. I lost my camera while out in the town (not from the hotel ) the lady who owned the place ordered me... More

We depended on owner Yorle's stated services and knowledge - and she delivered on all counts. Everything worked, she said it would be quiet at night - and it was. The breakfasts were filling and nutritious. The tours she recommended were exactly as promised, and the central location was a valuable asset.

Stayed only one night and caught the 6a.m. bus to Puntarens. Yourle was very helpful. Jeep-Boat-Taxi driver dinged us twice for our ride and she tracked them down and we got our money back. She was very informative and help us book a great night hike. Room was very clean and comfortable.Was a bit noisy at night but its downtown.
