We stayed here for two nights in May 2015, and had a very good experience. The staff was very warm and willing to help. The building has plenty of place to relax, two kitchens, and the private room was great. Breakfast is also very good for the price, fruits and eggs/pancakes. The only thing we didn't like was the matress,... More

I enjoyed my stay here at Vista Al Golfo. The place is clean and charming with a great view from the common area. The location is amazing, the main town is just steps away. Restaurants, supermarket and gift shops can all be found in the main town. The place has two shared kitchens for guests to use. Breakfast is served... More

Good place, short walk to town centre, relaxing place with friendly staff and atmosphere. Clean and really handy kitchen and other amenities. Would go back to hostel/hotel. Plenty of recommendations about places to visit, and helpful organising onward travel to La Fortuna.

This hostel is more like a hotel. It includes an incredible breakfast of fruit, pancakes, tea/coffee, juice etc. etc. The staff are friendly and accommodating due to a few complications upon our check-in (they didn't receive our reservation). We were put in a private room even though we booked a shared room because there was no room in the shared... More

This truly is a hostel and not a hotel. Yes, a good breakfast is included, but you are directed to wash and dry your dishes. The rooms are minimal - extremely dated. Signs posted date from 2005. At night the wind ripped so loud around the building it was difficult to sleep (we were there for three windy nightsin March... More

This hostel was great, the staff were fantastic and helpful with all our needs. Small but decent breakfast every morning prepared fresh for upon arriving at the kitchen in the morning. They are tucked in on a back road behind the main road into Monteverde, short walk into town for whatever you need or out the door and to the... More

The staff here are so friendly, always finding time to help you out and explain everything you need to know. If you book and tour and need to cancel or reschedule this is done by the hostel staff without any hassle. Any cancelled tours are 100% refunded. The breakfast is great,a plate of fruit and either eggs on toast or... More

I stayed in this hostel because of several recommendations from fellow travellers and was not disappointed. I received a warm welcome and lots of helpful advice regarding places to eat and local supermarkets, ATMs and activities. The rooms were comfortable and quiet and the sunny morning view during a fantastic free breakfast was gorgeous. I found the hostel to be... More

Clean, practical and relaxed hostel with the staff as the cherry on the top! The staff arranged all the activites for us and was so helpful and welcoming! Great view from the kitchen/common area where you have the included breakfast. Great value for money, recommend it!

While initially we found the staff quite friendly and the rooms adequate we had small issues. We stayed in the hotel part of the building. The shower was a pipe with cold water coming out of it, while this is no means a problem for me, the level of luxury did not match the price. We are also criticised by... More
