This is a very nice place to stay. The owner, Yorle, gives you information about the area. Breakfast is included (eggs, toast, fruit, pancake, juice and coffee). At the breakfast table you meet the other people in the hotel, so there are a lot of conversations there. And finally, the rooms are good, the beds are great and the shower... More

We stayed 27-31 Dec 2014. It was the best friendly comfortable bright double room with Hot showers we stayed in all of Costa Rica. The breakfast included was lovely and the lady worked very hard in the mornings. All the staff were friendly and the trips were booked through them which the Zip Line and the National Park were brill.... More

We spent 3 nights here and enjoyed our stay. Our double room had a double bed and bunk beds, a fridge, a shelving unit for your stuff, and even a clock radio. There was a tv with a number of English channels. The best equipped hostel I've been to! The ensuite bathroom is a decent size and the shower has... More

Nice and clean room, warm water shower! Good location and super friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is included and very good! We had dinner at the family restaurant, great Costa Rican food for a good price :-) The zip line experience was something we won't forget, for sure a must do when you are in Monteverde!!

I stayed for 4 nights at Sloth Backpackers and had a great time. The breakfast is absolutely great, and definitely far above average comparing to other hostels in Costa Rica (if you even get breakfast). The open kitchen (bring you own salt, oil, etc) is small but nice. The dorm (5 beds) is small as well, there's not much space... More

The dorms have extra blankets and are very comfortable. You've got hot shower, which is a great thing in Monteverde. The breakfast is very consistent and it's included in the price. The owner gives you the informations you need.

We stayed for 1 night and there is nothing to complain about. The rooms (double with bathroom) were big and clean, the bathroom was also ok, and the decoration is very cute (all about sloths). Also, there is a fair breakfast included and free wi-fi. In general, it is a good value for your money. We also booked zip line... More

Unfortunately, I had an awfull stay at this hostel. I made a reservation for 4 nights, but was kicked out after 2 nights, because 'there had been made a mistake and there were other people who made a reservation before me and there was no more space.' Asking around town, this turned out to be a common practice for hostels... More

The hostel's owner does not seem very friendly at all and this does not leave a good impression. She is helpful with the information you need, but don't expect any staff members to give you that service to make you feel at home. Nevertheless, the hostel is very clean and breakfast is great. Kitchen is well equipped but it closes... More
