Stayed only one night and caught the 6a.m. bus to Puntarens. Yourle was very helpful. Jeep-Boat-Taxi driver dinged us twice for our ride and she tracked them down and we got our money back. She was very informative and help us book a great night hike. Room was very clean and comfortable.Was a bit noisy at night but its downtown.

Yorli (owner) is great and super helpful when it comes to tours and any other information that you need. Breakfast: amazing and super filling. Not to mention there is a great variety. Rooms: clean and offer just the right amount of space needed, plus, they have lockers to lock your stuff in. I would come back for sure. Thanks for... More

Yorle is super helpful from booking until checkout. She immediately sent me an email filled with useful information after I booked online. Once we showed up she made sure we had lots to do everyday and was quick to set up anything we wanted as soon as we mentioned we were interested. The hotel is located "on the triangle" which...

We spent three nights here while visiting the area. We had a private room with double bed & two bunkbeds, so we used the bunkbeds for storing luggage. The rooms are nice, with a small place to hang a few things as well as shelves for clothes. The bathroom also has shelves for your toiletries. The BEST thing, for me,... More

I was a bit wary of using a hostel as I am older & need peace & space but this place was great. My husband & I had a private room with loads of space, the staff were really friendly & the communal kitchen is a great amenity. It's a good location for the national park & the town is... More

We already travelled a lot but have to say that our stay at Yorle's Sloth Hostel was the best we've ever had. The room was spacious, quiet with warm water shower. The breakfast was super ( fruits plus a choice of 4 egg/ gallo pinto based selections, fresh juice, coffee). Especially Yorle works the entire day to ensure all of... More

I was very impressed by the dorms at Sloth Backpackers. The hotel is outfitted with sloth pillows, blankets, and even sloth toilet seat covers. I was happy to find towels and soap included in the dorm. The staff helped us to schedule tours and buses to the parks. The included breakfast surpassed my expectations, with toast, pancakes, and omelet, and... More

we had a wonderful stay here. The room was clean and comfy, as was the bathroom. We had some problems working the shower though the roomkeeping lady quickly fixed it for us. Yorle was very helpful recommending attractions and booking tours in the area. I would recommedn paying in dollars as this seemed to give you a better value (they... More

Was only there for a short time but the staff were incredibly helpful and lovely and helped us organise tours and transfers. The rooms are simple but great and te hostel is in the middle of the town near restaurants and supermarket.
