We were thrilled with our stay at Cabinas Vista Al Golfo. What great prices for amazing quality! We had a private bedroom and bathroom that were just right and a great size. The patio overlooking the cloud forest can't be beat! Enjoy the view from a table or a hammock. The kitchen had everything you could need and was a... More

I absolutely love this hostel. During my 14 day trip, this was by far my most favorite hostel. Ro is the man! He is fullnof energy, incredibly nice and he helped me set up my canopy tour and night forest walk with a smile! The rooms were so comfy! The kitchens and bathrooms were perfecto. All the staff was awesome... More

Good location 5 minute walk from center of town. Incredibly helpful staff, they booked our tours and taxi at No fee. Good budget option , quiet and friendly. Our room needed an update. We stayed two nights and breakfast both mornings was complimentary.

There are 2 hotels known by the same name here in Santa Elena/Monteverde and one if not both are dishonest and nasty! At the one near the supermercado called Back Packers Vista Al Golfo Hostel, we booked 2 nights and 2 tours with them without shopping for another price. But we booked a bus to Playa Hermosa with someone else... More

Spent a couple nights here and found the room clean, if a bit basic, and had a great night's sleep. The view is great and the common areas are spacious and comfortable. Kitchen access is great and coffee is always available. The owner's son gave us a great overview of the area when we checked in and helped us book... More

Overall, this is a nice enough place to stay, especially for the price. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and we had our laundry washed and folded promptly during our stay (even if it cost about $8, we were glad to have the option as it was beyond time for laundry!). Our room and bathroom were clean, there was... More

Hostel is a little way down a dirt track off the main square (triangle). If you come by inter-city bus its tour touts will be around the bus terminal and can guide you along the 15 minute walk. They didn't offer to help with our bags but that's ok. The hostel is very clean, has free coffee til 6 all... More

We went through the town and all hostels seem noisy and without nice common area. Vista al Golfo was the opposite. For 10 USD cou get a basic room with shared bath, can use the kitchen and have breakfast (fruits, cereals, eggs or pancakes... really a lot!). The owners are a nice couple and gave us a students price for... More

This hostel has a lovely communal area and kitchen with beautiful views of the surrounding areas. The staff were friendly and helpful. My partner and i booked for a private room, we were upgraded to a family room with private bathroom for no extra money. Overall, it's a great hostel to relax in and meet new people.

What a view the owner meet the bus to convince us to try their venue, it was a bit overwhelming with a lot of proprietors selling their wears! But due to great reviews we choose the cabins. We got a good price for the room as the original room had been rented, we were in luxury! Double beds, tv, own... More
