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

Overall I really enjoyed my stay at sloth backpackers. The dorm was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was filling, though I have never seen eggs cooked in so much oil. The coffee was great but as with everywhere in Central America i am missing real milk or cream... The main thing this hostel is missing is a place for... More

I was really disappointed by this hostel, the 'free' breakfast you have to pay extra for and the lady was very rude and unhelpful. The dog is cute and the hammocks are nice but my god the worst night sleep ever! It sounds as if you are on a highway, it's so loud and the lady was outside our room... More

B&B owner was very helpful to arrange our stay in the best way and very friendly to feel welcomed! She has lovely dog! Very nice cleaning lady as well! She recommended us to visit yearly festival that was happening during our stay and that was just great experience! Though be prepared that is sweet though bathroom needs some renovation.

I really enjoyed my stay here! Yorle was great in getting tours booked for me...and changing the times when I needed to. She really knows the area well! I also appreciate the fact that she has a heart for businesses that are not the most popular destinations...but ones that are run by local families. My place was clean and comfortable.... More

This was one of my favorite places that I stayed in Costa Rica. The owner, Yorle, is seriously awesome and made our experience amazing! She will tell you the good places to eat, and you can book great tours through the front office. Also, the free breakfast in the morning was fantastic!

I went to Santa Elena at a high season so I had to pay $35/night for a private room that doesn't even have a hot shower. I ended up paying C21,000 - $42 for one night equivalent because I paid with a Debit Card. The kitchen is super clean and have a lots of kitchen utensils but no much space... More
