Super friendly staff, nothing fancy but does the job if you want to stay a day or 2. If you want to take the breakfast, mind it that this is just a small kitchen that cannot accomodate all the checked in people. bright spots: they do the trip reservations for you if you are interested in something around the area,...

I stayed for 2 nights in this Hotel. The room are very nice, the theme of the Hotel are the sloths and all refer to them. The owners are kind and available to help you. With the room you have also the breakfast which is quite good and plentiful.

We didn't stay at the backpackers so I can't comment on the accommodation, but we did book tours through them. They gave great advice and even helped us to sort out a problem with a tour booked through a different company.

The hotel owner was very professional but we had to protest with him. He had a dog and the dog barked all night! Only the day after we discovered that the owner was sleeping in a room and tried to put its dog in another. The dog doesn't like to be left alone, so he barked all night. Only almost... More

Yorle is a very nice and helpful host. The breakfast is very good and contains fruits, eggs and pancake. The rooms are very clean, beds are very comfortable. You can book a lot of activities through the hostel. We would definitely recommend to stay here!

Sloth backpackers is a great optiom to stay in the st elena/monteverdr area. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a flat screen tv with usb connection, and large refrigirator available in the room. In the room there is a handy clothing rack to put clothes, shoes and other stuff on (which you often miss while travelling in CR).... More

Great hotel and very cheap ($40 per night) We stayed here for 2 nights. Yorle, the hostess was very nice and helped us to do a very cool night walk with Kinkajou tours. Breakfast is included in the price and was also quite delicious. Go here when you're in monteverde!

The Sloth B&B is a great place to stay, quiet and close to town and bus stops. Yorle is friendly and helpful with organising things to do and see. Yorle puts so much effort into making her B&B comfortable, the room was spacious with a fridge, tv and wifi and an immaculate bathroom. The bed was made for us daily!... More
