Nice hostel, the rooms were fine, there were hot showers and a shared kitchen. Breakfast was included, maybe not the best och funniest breakfast but it was okay. The staff was adorable and so so nice! They helped us a lot, which restaurants we should try and how to go to Monteverde, and shuttle to LA Fortuna. Stay here!

I recently stayed in sleepers with two friends in a private room. It was by far the best value for money in Santa Elena, great for backpackers on a budget! Breakfast was also included and was really good. The family are so lovely and accommodating and very helpful with any queries we had. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

This hostel is a cute little place with a super friendly and welcoming couple who run it! We stayed for a couple of nights when we visited Santa Elena. The wifi was a little spotty on the floor we stayed on, but the main area was fine. We got some nice tips from the couple for different places and tours...

It also had a TV with some English channels, which was a nice extra. Sleepers is extremely good value for what you get, especially...

Ronnie was out on the street waiting to welcome us by name - quite unexpected! He was friendly and helpful, making a recommendation for dinner and sorting excursions for us. Our private room was basic but fine. The communal space is small, but the kitchen is well equipped albeit only 6 rings for cooking. The breakfast was surprisingly good -...

Ronny and his family were really welcoming and very knowledgeable about all the many activities in the area and can give you a good deal. Stayed in really good value private room. The shared kitchen is well equipped but can be a bit quiet if you are looking for something else. Highly recommend
