My partner and I spent 1 night at sloth backpackers and were really disappointed. Although the hostel itself was fine: decent kitchen and rooms, relatively clean. The downsides were the lack of areas to hang out and one of the toilets was missing a toilet seat.
The problem we had were the staff. They were very rude and pushy, and when they realized we didn't want to do a tour, they basically asked us to leave the hostel! Also, when we arrived they only had one double room and we were 3 people (my partner and I and a friend looking for a single room or dorm). Rather than being helpful, the girl on reception wouldn't tell our friend which direction to go in to find another hostel and told us that the whole town was full (typical crap hostel lie, I know).
I would not recommend this hostel to anyone - you can get a far better deal elsewhere in town.
