This hostel has the friendliest staff I have ever come across. It was so welcoming, I felt like I had found home away from home. It was cheap, clean and best of all, rooms come with free breakfast. But don`t expect your usual hostel breakfast of stale bread and jam, this breakfast included scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, tea, coffee and... More

Wow I can't say enough about how awesome this place was. Ro is extremely helpful and nice. He will sit down and explain every single option you have for outdoor activities. He really knows what he is talking about. He's there to answer any questions you have about anything. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The atmosphere was extremely laid... More

This is the best hostel! The location is perfect, two minutes out of town so it's nice and quiet. We had a big, clean room with a balcony. The included breakfast is fantastic! What really makes this place special is the staff. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and even took the time to show us some sloths in... More

This is such a cool hostel! Definitely worth staying in AND it has HOT SHOWERS (not just warm, hot)!!! You just have to be patient to find the right pressure to give you the temperature you want. We hit some nasty weather and the hot shower was the best thing at the end of the night. The rooms were clean... More

Left the hostel after one night in the private room. The bait-and-switch advertising is the big problem here: there was no vegetarian restaurant on site (despite a restaurant next to the hostel that advertised vegetarian fare - when we asked the owner for the hours, we were told it was "not finished" despite their website advertising otherwise). Other really bad... More

This place is awesome .. But what really makes it better than the rest is the staff . My husband and I have been backpacking for three months and all our favorite hostels have been the ones where the owner is present .. You feel like you are at home or staying with a friend .

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in a private double room. When we arrived we were welcomed by the very friendly Ro. Once settled Ro then kindly talked us through all of the different options for activities in the area. His advice was really useful in helping us choose which companies etc to use, and they took...

Even though we did not end up sleeping in this hostel, we have to write this review. By the time we arrived in Liberia, we were told at the bus terminal that the road to Santa Elena / Monteverde is closed for construction until 1 November !!! and only opens after 5pm when there are no more public buses.
