“Great base.”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Rooms basic but very clean, great breakfasts- lovely home made pancakes, although would have liked some other more savoury options (after a few days of so much sweet food, I started to really crave salt!). Great to be able to book tours from the b&b and very helpful owner.

Yorle the owner is about as friendly as it gets for a backpacker's hostel. Was extremely easy to book activities and Yorle was always available to guide us in the right direction. Is situated in the center of town with bars and restaurants all around the corner. Highly recommend!

We stayed here with our 2 children, room was basic but spacious & clean. Extra blankets, towels and good shower (though the earlier, the better, as it usually goes in hostels). Set up is like a motel, so (small) kitchen is the only common indoor area, but still met some other travelers. Yorle was very helpful, set us up for all the activities we were interested in. She also organized private (and less expensive) transportation once we left Monteverde. Nice to have use of the kitchen, breakfast was good (toast, sliced fruit & eggs - scrambled one morning, omelet the next), and mostly Yorle was great with our kids. One of them came down with a bad flu while we were there and she made her hot ginger & honey drinks and made sure she was comfortable. Altogether, very good option for a few days in town.

Yorle (the owner) is really nice, if you're looking to do the expected and typical adventures in Monteverde she won't disappoint. But don't expect more than that.

The breakfast was amazing.

Her place needs updating.

For $35 there is a nice bus to Managua.

The hostel is run by very friendly women, the rooms are clean and the showers are very nice with hot water. Breakfast is included and is very tasty, very close to all shops and restaurants in centre of town.

We had a private room which was clean and spacious. There were also thick blankets, a TV and fridge. The free breakfast was excellent and substantial. The kitchen was available to be used. Yorle also helped us with our trip to Montevarde and then our onward travel. We also had our laundry done there. It was an excellent place to stay. The only draw back was that the hot water ran out at one point.

Stayed two nights after showing up to town late and my first choice hostel being fully booked. Decent sized rooms and a standard breakfast too. Owner was a bit rude to me when I said I'd booked tours with my mates at another hostel.. And when she saw me take my laundry elsewhere too. Also tried to charge me for a paper map as she thought I had taken 2! Wouldn't stay here again by choice but not bad for the money.
