After 7 nights in another hostel that had cold shared showers and a leaky roof, it was with sweet relief that I stepped into the hot shower at Sloth Backpackers. For just $20 a night for a private double (our room had a double and a single bed) with a clean bathroom, wifi, and pancakes for breakfast - this really is a good deal.
The owner Yorle was there waiting at the bus stop in the rain to walk people to the hostel and then provided us with maps and as much information as we needed. It was helpful to be able to book all our activities with Yorle, who provided recommendations without being pushy at all. We were also able to book our onwards transfer to La Fortuna and get our washing done - all without leaving the hostel!
My only small negative would be that it can get a little loud in the front rooms with the traffic from the main road and people coming and going in neighboring rooms and the kitchen. However I think that this would be unavoidable anywhere in town and is the price you pay for a good location within walking distance to the main restaurants and attractions.
