After arriving in a group to La Foruna from Monteverde a lot of the travellers headed for Gringo Petes, but we liked the sound of Sleeper´s. Our first night wan´t that great - the local church band across the road seemed to be practising the same song over and over. But it was probably the heavy rain that spoiled the day more than anything.
However, we ended up loving this cheap and secure hostel and stayed at least 3 more day than we originally intended. Owner Mauricio was happy, helpful and chatty; helping us book both the Arena and rafting tours at really short notice. He also hired us 2 of his brand new mountain bikes and gave us directions to the local hot springs.
The wifi was good, the free breakfast was really nice, and the private room with cable tv was a treat when the La Fortuna downpours kicked in.
Big thanks to Mauricio!
