“Excellent value, amazing service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

I stayed at Eddys for 3 nights. I had a double bed ensuite room. With a choice of breakfast included in the price, I was initially worried that I had accidentally reserved a room more expensive than I had thought. But no, it's just that Eddys is such fantastic value! I paid less here than for a dorm room in other places in Costa Rica. Their customer service is excellent too - friendly and smiley (even at 5.30am for an early breakfast so I could get to the Monteverde National Park when it opened) and so helpful with information on the local area, things to do and organising transport for moving on. Eddys exceeded my expectations - I was very impressed! If you're looking for friendly and good value accommodation in Santa Elena, stay here.

This place was great and Freddy helped us out a ton. It's a good locaiton just barely outside of town which keeps it quite. However it is only a couple minute walk to the store and city center. He helped us a TON on info for local activities. Overall it was a good experience and we had a fun time meeting some new people there. You can use the kitchen to cook as well.

Room Tip: The second floor units are away from the common area and front desk/breakfast area. Friends we met s...

My wife and I stayed at Cabinas Eddy for 4 nights recently.

There had generally been outstanding reviews here for this and of Freddy too. Both were true and Freddy and his family were great hosts, taking so much care in offering a first class service for a budget accommodation option. The breakfasts were great, rooms were clean and the mattresses very firm.

A very good choice for budget accommodation I believe.

I wish i could give this place a higher review. It's bare bones but clean, Freddy is, indeed, awesome. The low rating is location. The wind howeled like hurricane all night against paper thin walls. Being so close to town, right on the street, meant there were loud trucks and motorcycles passing all night. Additionally, the sound of dogs barking and birds chirping starting around 3.30am. If none of this is an issue, I say go for it.

Our second stay at Cabinas Eddy revealed that nothing has changed since our last visit - luckily! Prices haven't increased and the service (breakfast, information) remains just as good as it was. Keep it going!

We stayed in Cabinas Eddy for 3 nights. We loved it there. We stayed in a great room with a nice washroom, great shower, LOVED the porch. Breakfast and coffee were great. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of Monteverde. It's a very small town, easy to get around, good central tourist spot with lots to offer travellers. Out of everywhere we stayed in Costa Rica (a mix of budget, mid-range, and high end), Cabinas Eddy was definitely the BEST. The staff were incredibly friendly. They arranged great tours for us at a discounted rate. I recommend the horseback riding in the sunset - absolutely awesome, not your average tourist horseback ride. Oh, and we saw a sloth twice at night while walking from Cabinas Eddy in to town for dinner!

Room Tip: No AC, but you don't need it in Monteverde, its cool there.

Excellent place to stay - comfortable and clean rooms, very good breakfast and good atmosphere. Freddy Junior is a first class host who provides very trustworthy information. Special tip - get a haircut from the maestro pelliquer Freddy senior downstairs!
