Lonely Planet review
This friendly Tico-run hotel has huge wooden rooms with private hot showers. The pricier upstairs rooms are airier, though the best ones are toward the back. There’s a great balcony with sweeping views of the area.
Our independent authors have visited Hostel El Sueno and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in Monteverde & Santa Elena.
