We loved it here! The owner Ronnie and his Brother Mauricio (i may have spelt that very wrong) were the friendliest and most welcoming people we had met in 4 months of travel.
The kitchen was super clean and well looked after.
The TV in the communal area had English film and sport channels, which is an awesome added bonus!
The location is perfect! Right in the main part of town, 1 minute from the superstore.
Ronnie told us everything we needed to know about all the sights and free hikes around and his recommendations were great and free!!
This Hostel is made to take good care of weary travellers.
Thanks for everything Ronnie and Mauricio!

My first impression was lets turn around and find another hostel because everything looks a bit old and there was some maintanance going on.
I am glad I stayed. Prices were super cheap and included a breakfast which consisted of fresh fruit, cereal, bread and eggs.
Wifi isnt amazing and the rooms are a bit old but clean and I would always come back.
Owner helped us out with booking transport and activities.

I booked and paid online before seeing the hostel because it had a lot of good reviews.... big mistake!! The 4 person dorm is so tiny.... 2 sets of bunk beds so close together and no other place to set anything down. It smells horrible, like mildew and sweaty feet. A girl in my dorm was really sick and coughing a lot and since the room is so tiny you could just feel the germs everywhere. When I told the manager that i was not comfortable staying in the room and asked for my money back so I could find a new hostel, I was told no refunds. I insisted that I could not stay in that room with the sick girl, so he agreed to let me stay in a private room for 1 night rather than the dorm for 2 nights. I agreed. The private room was much bigger but just as stinky and musty.
Breakfast was ok but the people were really rude
I couldn't wait to get out of there!!!
There are multiple other hostels in Monteverde that are only $1-$4 more per night. I highly recommend paying the tiny bit more then staying at this horrible place.

It's a small hostel with 3 floors. Decent wifi, hot showers & free breakfast. Its a little tired but functional. The street is noisy, so bring ear plugs. The owners are friendly & helpful, they have helped us book all our tours and they've all been great. Good value for the money.

Great location and awesome single top level apartment style pad. The hostel has three floors and you can rent the entire top floor as it is a private room with a large kitchenette, 2 beds, a full bathroom with a large shower, a private balcony and a great view of the town of Monteverde! It is mostly cottage style, so the walls and ceiling are made of wood, but the floors and the entire bathroom is tiled. Clean, friendly, very informative, offer laundry service at a fee and a free breakfast every morning of fresh cut fruit, cereal, scrambled eggs and toast and coffee or tea!

This hostel was great! The owner and staff are always happy to help, the lady who greeted me when I arrived took the time to explain everything about the hostel, town and activities. The free breakfast was fantastic with fruit, cereal, eggs and toast all prepared for you. Hot showers with decent water pressure, and a nice balcony to chill out or meet people.
Wifi can be a little slow sometimes but not th end of the world. For $10 a night it's cheaper than most in the area, I'd definitely stay here again!

I loved this place. We stayed in the rooftop room. Super clean, great, friendly and helpful staff, good value and perfect location. Definitely not a party hostel. But who comes to Monteverde to party? Big plus for the included breakfast.
