Monteverde hostels, which one is best??

Hello there!

There are so many hostels options in Monteverde (Santa Elena) and my boyfriend and I are a little lost as to which one to choose. I have read great reviews about Pension Santa Elena, Casa Tranquilo, Sloth Backpackers...and many more! But there are also some very negative comments about cleanliness and bad smells and bugs (especially *yikes* bedbugs!)...

So we are being a little cautious... The prices are very attractive and we ARE looking for a cheap clean accommodation, definitely not for luxury, BUT we want to find the best in that price range.

Any recommendations?

Pension Santa Elena. The "gold standard" in budget lodging for many years.
