Alonso the owner is very helpful and informative about tours and transport. The 6-bed dorm I stayed in had 2 private bathrooms. The hostel was very clean and had a great breakfast. It's also located next to a big supermarket.

The staff is really friendly and helps you with everything you may need (such as take out food), there is nice free breakfast and the showers... just the best shower you'll have in your life. There is a small common room with cosy couches that make it easy to meet new people. The... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with 6 friends. Alonso (the manager) was incredibly accommodating, as soon as we booked he sent us detailed instructions of how long our journey would take, where to go when we arrive, numbers to call in case of emergencies etc. On arrival we were provided with great information and tours, what I really liked...

I've visited Monteverde last year, and stayed a few nights in Monteverde. Location is closed to centre, the atmosphere is relaxed, the host, was super friendly and made sure that all the guests had a good time . Breakfast was the best part. Fresh fruit salad, eggs and Nutella available.. For a very good price!! Costa Rica Pura Vida

The girl at the desk, Johanna, was a doll and helped us out so much! There was a restaurant down the street that was delicious and the bus station wasn't very far from the hostel. There happened to be a sloth in the back of the hostel while we were there, and it was super awesome to witness! It seems... More

This was a great hostel located right by the central triangle of the city. Alonso at the front was a great host to us, keeping us engaged with stories and tips, and even offering to help us book day trips and transportation with ease. The rooms are very small, and your experience inside them definitely depends on the roommates you... More

The hostel looked like it would have been wonderful. However, when we arrived, we were told that there had been a problem with our booking. Hm...we had a reservation, had paid a deposit, had a booking confirmation number, and they had all our info written down in their book...They wouldn't explain why our reservation was not okay and what this...
