I stayed at this hostel for 2 nights, during a backpacker trip through Costa Rica. The staff was very helpfull from the moment we arrived, which was a great help, since there's a lot of different tours and operators in the area of Monteverde. It's a fine breakfirst and the rooms are clean and decent.

We stayed here for three nights, and it was a fantastic choice. Yorle was a fantastic host, and was able to book anything we wanted to do/see while in Santa Elena. Definitely recommend the night hike, it was very fun. The walls are thin so if noise bothers you this might not work out, but it also depends on the other groups staying at that time.

We were greeted at the bus stop by Yorle. At check-in, she gave us an overview of the city and activities available in the area. We were able to book every tour with transportation included through her, which made everything really easy. We met a ton of backpackers there, but it wasn't a loud, crazy, party hostel. You can see and feel the dedication Yorle puts into her hostel. I would definitely recommend Sloth backpackers to anyone.

After living in Costa Rica for 5 months and backpacking my last 2 weeks, I can without a doubt say that Sloth Backpackers was easily the best hostel my friend and I stayed at. When we arrived we were greeted by Yorle who offered pertinent information about Monteverde, (banks, bus station, super markets, and all the best and most economic activities) as well as free tea and fresh coffee! Sloth also lives up to its name - we were able to see a 2-toed sloth right outside the hostel on our very first night there! Monteverde and Santa Elena are beautiful places to visit, but what really made the experience was staying in a place where we felt at home. Clean space, free wifi, free and delicious breakfast, hot showers, and friendly staff. This would be a great place for anyone to stay, young or old, solo or part of a group. I promise you will feel as though you are at home away from home! :)
