Casa Tranquilo Hostel
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Stayed here for two nights. Very reasonable price and the staff - especially Elvis - was very helpful. They can recommend good places to eat for an authentic experience and they have connections on the Pacific coast if you are looking for a good place to stay. The shower was very hot, but the rooms are drafty. There was a lot of wildlife in my room, but that's Costa Rica. The room was clean enough for the price, though a little drafty. I would stay here again for sure.

I stayed here for two nights in January 2012 with a group of friends, and it was a wonderful experience. They offer cute and clean rooms with delicious homemade banana bread in the morning (you can also make your own food with bread, eggs, fruit, etc. that they provide). The staff is incredibly helpful and knowledge--they assisted me in booking transportation and a room to the west coast, as well as helped me mapped out a route into Nicaragua. They helped us also organize a tour of Monteverde, including a night walk, and ziplining through the canopy (highly recommended).

They also have a hot shower, which is a huge bonus on these trips!

This was our favorite hostel from our two week trip. The staff is SO incredibly friendly, which makes all the difference in the world!

Nice & clean rooms, the staff is really great, helpful. They are also tour guides themselves and we had the best bird-watching experience with Johnny.

Beautiful warm and friendly place. The staff is very nice and qualified to give us information about all the possibilities that we can find in Monteverde. The room are comfortable and really clean. Having the common kitchen is very practical and hot shower are so appreciated after the tours. I recommend you for shure La casa tranquilo for give you the chance to bring amazing memories back home. Enjoy your trip, Pura Vida! :)

My friend and I had a great time staying at this hostel! The bed wasn't the most comfortable but the character of the place and advice from the owners made up for it. We were shown one of the best places to eat (from all our travels around Costa Rica) and given some great advice on what to do in Monteverde/Santa Elena. We were even able to print and fax some things without a charge. Also, great banana bread for breakfast :)

David and Elvis are two are the most friendly hosts. They provide a clean, safe and friendly environment with heipful advise on tours and the surrounding area. Breakfast, which included eggs, toast, fruit,cereal and fresh banana bread and/or banana pancakes...wow!, was included in the price as well as internet. The room was tidy and the showers really had hot water, and lots of it. I would stay here again and have already recommended it to other travellers.
