Yorle is extremely helpful if you want to do any type of tour in the Monteverde area. The hostel is clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast is fantastic as is the coffee! The small kitchen/common area brings everyone together in the morning for great company and conversations! I would recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Monteverde/Santa Elena.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have low slanting ceilings, watch your head.

This was an awesome hostel that I highly recommend. Yorlene goes out of her way to make your stay more comfortable and fun. She is an excellent source of information, providing very honest feedback and suggestions. Plus, you can tell she really cares about her guests. When we were here, she was so excited to just have received her brand-new sloth-themed curtains and toilet covers!! Not to mention that the breakfast is damned-good. But more than anything, Yorlene is just an awesome and fun person to be around who will make your stay in Monteverde a million times better. Stay here if you want comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast and if you want to hang out with a trustworthy and charismatic owner. It tends to skew towards women but is a comfortable place for men to stay as well.

Excellent value for money spent. Good advice on tours and things to do. Very good free breakfast, pancakes or omelett. Clean hostel (but kitsch decoration), kitchen ok but miss a left-over area for oil, spices, etc... Perfect location, close to the supermaket and town center. Professional staff, very kind, helpful and hospitable.

Our best hostel in CR !
