“Charming hostel, clean, great location, friendly staff!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

I would recommend this hostel to anyone. It's family own and operated. It's clean and the environment is very sympathetic and friendly. The location is great, in the core of Monteverde. There's also free breakfast that the wife cooks for you :)

My friend and I spent a few nights here and had a great experience at Sleepers. It is very close to the local bus stop, which makes getting there very easy. The owner, Ronny, was there to greet us and gave us a sheet of the many informational and adrenaline activities around the area and helped us decide on which ones to do. He set up all of our tours and helped us arrange our days in the most time efficient manner. The breakfast there is second to none--fresh fruit, cereal, scrambled eggs, toast and coffee/tea. His wife and cute kids and there, who help with breakfast and the laundry service. We had a small problem with the WiFi for the couple days we were there, but he had it fixed by the time we left and in the interim had computers for us to use. He and his family were very sweet and accommodating and really made for a great experience in Santa Elena. We would definitely stay there again and recommend you to stay there too!!

I could not say enough amazing things about Ronny, his family, and their hostel!! We stayed two nights and the first night, the hostel was overbooked so he gave us a private room for the same price and even let us stay in the same private room the following night for the same price. Rooms were very spacious, super clean, hot showers (absolutely a luxury in Costa Rica), and awesome breakfast included!! Ronny went well above and BEYOND to help us with anything and everything we needed during our stay. The environment and feeling of the hostel was incredible; we had a blast in Monteverde all thanks to Ronny. His recommendations for everything definitely made our experience that much better. Throughout the rest of our 21 days in Costa Rica we most certainly went around recommending Ronny's hostel. Leaving was definitely bitter sweet. Thanks for everything Ronny, you're the man!!!!

We stayed here for two nights and were very impressed. Ronny and his family were very welcoming, helpful and accommodating. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a hot, powerful shower. Sleepers is very conveniently located (although everything in Monteverde is conveniently located!)and Ronny helped us make our reservations for the tours (particularly recommend the night tour; I wasn't brave enough for zip wires!) Strong wifi signal throughout and a large, delicious breakfast. Very impressed!

The sleepers that I stayed is the one beside of the Monteverde Hostel. Its not that one on the photo. Maybe there is 2 hostel with the same name. Any hostel in Monteverde its close to the downtown.
I was at the dorm, its face to street, so if you think you are going to sleep well, forget it, and is too small for 5 people and 5 backpack. The toilet was broken, you had to open it to pull the little cord to flush the water! The room was clean, but the kitchen and around, its a mess!!
They owner as really nice in the begging, talking and trying to sell me some tour, but when I said that I was not doing anything, he completely changed, no more talking.
So before you chose anyone, have a look around, Monteverde its too small.

This hostel is located in downtown Santa Elena. We didn't have a car and could walk to all the shops and restaurants. Ronny and his family are amazing hosts. Breakfast is included and you can also use the fridge and kitchen to prepare other meals. Ronny arranged our transportation and tours. He responded to all my questions via email before we even left for Costa Rica. My husband and I stayed in a private room with a bathroom. The room was clean and had plenty of space for us. There are also plenty of places to sit outside and read, drink coffee, etc. It's also fun to meet the other guests there and to share travel stories.

My sister and I stayed here while backpacking through Costa Rica. It was our favorite stay! The owner was so friendly and booked our zip lining tour of the cloud rainforest. The room was clean with our own private bathroom. Great value and fun location.
