      Cheapest place we stayed on this holiday, but one of the best. This was the first hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica which did not seem over priced. We arrived in early afternoon and were shown to our room by the helpful reception staff who gave us map of sights and explained bus times to national park etc. We had booked our tours in advance and were not made to feel unwelcome due to this and were not sold any more tours.

      The room was agood size, and unlike most rooms in Costa Roca it came with plenty of places to hang things. Bearing in mind this is a hostel, it actually had a better TV than most of the hotels we stayed at on this trip, and there was a fridge too. We had a private ensuite room which was upstairs and for the money I would say a better bet than the non-ensuite rooms below which we saw when having breakfast.

      You had to put a time down for breakfast which I have not encountered before, and don't really like, plus brekkie finished a bit early. Lots of signs about warning of potenatial fines which is a bit unwelcoming, but helps to keep costs down. Breakfast was a choice of two options which changed each day and was a nice, simple start to the day. Free tea and coffee was great, as was nice to enjoy a cup in the lounging area after a day's activities.

      Curtains in room let in too much light which I suppose helped us be up in time for breakfast!

      Check out also was earlier than normal, so be warned if you plan on having a rest on your final day here.

      To get to town you can walk up a side path near the supermarket or take the road. By taking the road you will pass Bar Amigos, a good bar with pool table, a local feel and potential for dancing.

      In opposite direction from town is soda Amistad recommended by the hostel which gives a free desert. Free desert was poor, and the meal itself, although OK was not one of the best we had. We tried soda La Savadita to the north of town which was a bit cheaper and better food.

      Owner of hostel was very nice and good to talk too, we even got a packet of coffee from the platation given to us. Now we need to buy a coffee maker!

      Bang for your buck this was best place on our trip. Highly recommended.

      Yorle was amazing and friendly, fun. Best hostel in Monteverde. Most information and easy transportation. Reports of a sloth in the tree outfront though I never got to see it. Right next to marketplaces, etc.

      A travel blog entry by mothman on Apr 27, 2014

      Pick up from hotel in Fortuna at 8.30am for bus-boat-but to Santa Elena. It took almost an hour to reach lakeside due to lots of pickups. Path down to boat was a bit tricky and much easier with a rucksack than suitcase. Boat had hard seats and was very slow but took less than an hour. We did not get any good views of volvano due to cloud cover. …

      ... into town and heading to Panama. We paid for 1 night, 3 meals and packed our bags in the closet. I took a photo of our closet at this time.

      We were laughing at this point, in pretty high spirits about the predicament we got ourselves in. Why didn't we ask more questions beforehand?! We would like to think that Maria tried to give us the farming experience that we wanted, but can't help but think that she was just hoping we would stay anyway once we got there ...

      Moving (on) Mountains

      ... but after a 600 metre climb in the first two kilometres we were at the mercy of the mountain, praying that the next 14 kilometres would be less gruelling. The moutain lured us further with patches of flat ground, only to cruelly discipline us again and again. But the heat began to subside, and the legs, although burning, maintained enough strengh to give us hope of a successful climb. There were no gifts, and the final kilometre, dubbed 'The Repentants' ...
