Lonely Planet review
Small and friendly, Monteverde Backpackers is part of the Costa Rica Hostel Network. The wood-paneled rooms are clean and comfy enough, the showers are hot, the location in Santa Elena is quiet, and management is helpful. Freebies include coffee, hammocks and a sunset hike. Breakfast is DIY, so you can make ’em how you like ’em (eggs, that is).
Our independent authors have visited Monteverde Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Monteverde & Santa Elena.
