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

Was quite disturbed at this hostel! Looks like standards have dropped for the rainy season! This place is LOUD! I had to be awake at 4am and got zero sleep. Everyone in the room also couldn't sleep and kept trying to complainbut no one was at reception. When I walked out of my room at 4am I discovered it was... More

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.
