“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Lovely hostel, great price and lovely breakfast. The owner was incredibly helpful, he knew great local information- best tours, free things to see, restaurants- and information about the surrounding area- how to get places driving or public transport, good places to visit. Overall just fantastic, and incredibly friendly.

Stayed there for three nights, and it was fine. Our room was next to a very windy corridor and it was quite cold in the night.
But it was cheap, the owners were very nice and it's in the center of Santa Elena.

I actually did not stay at Sleepers, but took advantage of the knowledge and hospitality of the owner, Ronnie.

Traveling solo in a country where your mastery of the native tongue is only so-so can be tricky. Luckily for me, the Spanish- speaking owner of my hotel is a friend of Mr. Ronnie. On check-in, he asked me in Spanish if I would need help booking date trips or services around the cloud forest. Within 5 or so minutes, Ronnie was in the hotel lobby helping me sort out the many tourist options available in the area.

Ronnie gave me honest, straightforward advice on the different options for things like night walks, zip lining, hikes, etc.

I had the pleasure of speaking with him for a while while waiting for one of my drivers. He owns sleepers with his lovely family, and is very proud to be a part of the tourist culture in Costa Rica.

Even if you are not staying in the hostel, I recommend popping over to see Ronnie if you need help booking any daytime excursions out of Santa Elena.

For the 25$ we got nice and clean room with the fastest wifi I experienced in a Costa Rican Hostel. Even a good breakfast was included. Ronny was always very helpful, if we had a question. I can recommend this hostel for anybody who is going to Monteverde.

What a fab place! Good location and price. As soon as we booked, we got an email from the owner, asking us what we wanted to do in the area etc. we were greeted at the door and were shown to our room. We stayed in a private room, large bed, tv, good wifi connection and a shower with hot water. The breakfast was perfect, fruit, cereal, eggs and toast. What more good you ask for before a day of adventures. The owner will book all tours for you. You can pay on card or cash. Make sure you do the zip lining, rainforest reserve walk and night tour! The hostel was in the centre of town and is the place to stay. We used the kitchen on one night to make dinner, plenty of pots, pans etc. great stay. Great owners.

The place is really good with a good location, the atmosphere is good and people are nice. You have breakfast in the morning and it feel like if you are with family. Also, they can book really good trip from the office. I recommand this place for any traveler in Costa Rica
