Lovely hostel, great price and lovely breakfast. The owner was incredibly helpful, he knew great local information- best tours, free things to see, restaurants- and information about the surrounding area- how to get places driving or public transport, good places to visit. Overall just fantastic, and incredibly friendly.

Stayed there for three nights, and it was fine. Our room was next to a very windy corridor and it was quite cold in the night. But it was cheap, the owners were very nice and it's in the center of Santa Elena.

Traveling solo in a country where your mastery of the native tongue is only so-so can be tricky. Luckily for me, the Spanish- speaking owner of my hotel is a friend of Mr. Ronnie. On check-in, he asked me in Spanish... More

For the 25$ we got nice and clean room with the fastest wifi I experienced in a Costa Rican Hostel. Even a good breakfast was included. Ronny was always very helpful, if we had a question. I can recommend this hostel for anybody who is going to Monteverde.

The place is really good with a good location, the atmosphere is good and people are nice. You have breakfast in the morning and it feel like if you are with family. Also, they can book really good trip from the office. I recommand this place for any traveler in Costa Rica

This family run hostel is excellent value. I rented solo room for $25 per night with breakfast included. It has a big room and very clean. I booked all of my activities through the owner and he was very sweet and knowledgable! I would stay here again!
