No one here is trying to gouge you. They're not touristy. It's so refreshing. The rooms are inexpensive and comfortable, if you aren't into lux. The staff is so chill and so lovely and so helpful. It's an easy 3 minute walk into the main triangle. Breakfast is delicious. If you're tired of the zip-line/horseback-riding side of Costa Rican adventures,... More

Super laid back hostel with great owners and management. Located a five minute walk from center of town. Emil and the owners treated my family as his own. Free hearty breakfast and plenty of local knowledge.

Beautiful, well kept and charming hostel with great amenities. The staff makes you feel like you're at home. A home away from home. It is a perfect place to meet people and discover more of the Costa Rican lifestyle. Monteverde combines adrenaline and relaxation and this place is the perfect combination. Oh and the free breakfast is just amazing!

We arrived with 4 people and when they only had 3 dorm beds available the owner upgraded us to a private for no extra charge at all. This place was the definition of what a hostel should be. Not the cleanest and not the nicest, but had the best atmosphere and most helpful owners out of any other hostel we... More

I have spent 12 months of my life backpacking and this place is one of the best. David and co are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much. The hostel is very clean and cute (wooden rooms) and what value for money. The breakfast alone (best breakfast ever, the banana bread is to die for) would cost most of... More

we paid 18 dollars for a small but decent room with shared bathroom and breakfast included. It was excellent value. The breakfast was generous,and consisted of freshly cooked scrambled eggs, banana bread and fresh fruit, all really tasty and filling. Coffee was also great. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Location wise it was just a short distance from... More
