  La Pension Santa Elena
by jennifermueller

We stayed in the lovely little new rooms with private baths in the back for three nights. There are also singles, doubles and triples with shared baths for ~$15-20 per night and dorms for ~$5 per night per bed. It's a pretty typical hostel but it's clean and not loud at night, at least not where we slept. The shared kitchen helps weary travelers save a little $$ and add variety to the diet. They also have laundry service (a good deal since line-drying is difficult in Monteverde).

Unique Qualities: Very helpful staff can arrange a number of tours, transportation, horseback riding, and other activities. There seem to be a ton of staff around at all times. The original owner mentioned in guide books is not around anymore.
