This place is simply amazing, the hostel is managed by 4 very helpful and friendly guys that will do everything they can to make you satisfied. The place isn't expensive at all, especially considering the services they offer you.
They offer food to prepare your own breakfast, along with unlimited and very good coffee. The breakfast is simple, consisting of eggs, bread, rice, fruits and coffee.
They also provide lots of good recommendations for activities, along with many very nice free guided hikes. We ended up doing the free hike and climbed up a hollow tree, then hiked up a mountain (Cerro Amigos if i remember correctly), ending into the dense cloud forest for a pretty complete experience of the cloud forest. Strenuous, but i definitely recommend giving it a try. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Would i go back to Monteverde with unlimited budget, i would still choose this place over the big resorts.
We stayed there at the beginning of december 2012. Thanks for hosting us!
