“Awesome location and value, great owner!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

We ended up here after another hostel gave away our room, and boy did we luck out! Great owner who was very helpful and helped us organize all our day trips! We are leaving tomorrow morning at 530am and we had to insist he didnt have to wake up to make us breakfast that early. Clean rooms without fan or ac but the nights were cool enough they werent needed. Highly recommended and if I am ever here again I will be staying here again. Overall just awesome!

We stayed at Cabina Eddys for a couple days in May, and were blown away by how friendly and helpful the owner, Freddy, was. He helped us book all our shuttles and activities, and made great recommendations for things we should check out.

The rooms were very clean, and were great value for the price. It was a bit more low-key than other hostels, so don't stay here if you are looking for the party scene. Breakfast was included, and consisted of a plate of fresh fruit and banana pancakes (or toast if you wanted it), coffee and juice.

Oh yeah, bring your own toilet paper if you don't like baby powder scented tp! :)

Let me preface by saying that the hostel scene is filled with college backpackers staying on a budget. This place is a great deal for that demographic, still an OK place for the more mature travelers. Definitely a good value for the price- More details below:

The rooms are small-- as in barely enough room for the bed, and there is no AC- -which would be far too hot during the day, but was plenty cool enough at night. The shared bathroom was one shower, one sink and one toilet but seemed clean and did offer hot water.
Parking lot has gate that locks, but the fence does not go all the way around, so while no one could STEAL your car, it would be easy for a passerby to walk in, break into your car, and leave on foot.

Dont plan on using the shared kitchen except for the most basic of cooking needs (perhaps reheating leftovers from dinner). It is very small- maybe only big enough for two to stand in and has limited cooking supplies.
Breakfast was wonderful-- fresh fruit and a delicous banana pancake with homemade cococut syrup.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Cabinas Eddys during the first week of May. Eddy's was amazing--very clean, comfortable, delicious food, great location, and amazing staff. Freddy, the owner, was so helpful and kind. He helped us with scheduling activities and everything else we asked him. He really made our stay. Also, the banana pancakes are AMAZING, they are a must and definitely was the best breakfast we had the entire time in Costa Rica. I highly recommend this place--you will find no better in Monteverde and no kinder staff.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of the balcony are nice--but really all rooms are great.

We stayed here for 5 days. We just love this B&B. Everthing is perfect. Nice location, 2 mins walk to downtown; Super friendly and helpful staff, Owner Freddy is full of patience, he always speak gentlely and slow; the cleaning lady is nice; grey puppy is cute, they just try to make you feel like at home. :)

Rooms are simple and clean. Bed is comfortable and they even provide three layers of quilts for you! There is no fan or air conditioner in the room, because Monteverde is super cool even a bit cold, so you wont need them.

Breakfast is good! Time to eat is flexible. Fresh fruits, banana pancake and egg roll are my favorite! Unlimited Juice, coffee and tea. What's more, IT IS FREE!!

Book tours and tickets at the eddy's reception! They will give you the best price!

If you want to cook, they have kitchen that you can use; if you want to do laundry, they have washer and dryer, the price is count by weight.

I did not believe that I can have such a wonderful experience by spending just a little bit money! definitely good deal to live here!

All in all, if you have any questions, just ask their staff, they will try their best to help you!

A lovely place!!!
The owner is very very nice. Helps in planning trips.
Gives discounts on orders of attractions.
Excellent location and parking for guests.
A variety of rooms in three price levels.
We took the expensive room that was bigger and a good shower.
Just need to be careful not to slip on the floor of the hall on the second floor.
Excellent breakfast and coffee and cookies in the afternoon.
Highly recommended.

Cabinas Eddy definitely lives up to the great reviews on trip advisor. Very clean, safe, value for money, good location (short 5min walk into main Santa Elena town) comfortable rooms and incredibly friendly and helpful owners.

Must try the banana pancakes for breakfast... Perfectly cooked with homemade coconut syrup (plus coffee/tea/fruit.. all included in the room price!).

Phenomenal value for money and fantastic service!! An absolute gem.
