    Sloth Backpackers was great, we did so many activities in Monteverde with Diego's (hostel host) help! He was right on the money with all of his recommendations and really cares about his clients. Included breakfast is excellent and the room were nice and clean. Would stay again!

    Outstanding breakfast, clean rooms and very organized. Stick with all rules of the house and you will be able to enjoy a great time at this hostel. The kitchen is more than well equipped and the receptionists or the owner can sell you any kind of tour in Monteverde of you wish so. Laundry service for 5$ within 6-7 hours.

    Manuel and the team were amazing! Had great chats and learned a lot about the area and surrounding it too. Were given wonderful recommendations and went through with all of them and came out extremely satisfied. The room itself was exactly what we thought we paid for and our expectations were met. Would definitely stay here again! PS: Food was delicious :)

    The place is clean and secure, there’s a shower/bathroom in the dorms and the location is close to the bus station where you can take the bus to go see the cloud forest. I also recommend eating lunch/dinner at the place where they serve you breakfast

    Helpful staff and great WiFi. The breakfast was nice. You could easily hear that the road was just outside when in the rooms. The kitchen was great

    Breakfast was great, location is right in town, walking distance to restaurants, etc. Staff were helpful in booking activities and helping us figure out transportation. Rooms were fairly spacious. Not much of a lounge/common area to sit in. Can be a bit noisy at night because of traffic in town. Overall a good experience!

    I was in the private room. It had it's own outside entrance, which I like. Shower was medium power and warm. Bed was comfortable. The breakfast is next door. Their food is good. Many choices for food and drink within a short walking distance. Great hub to do all your cloud forest activities. Wifi was spotty. Not a honeymoon suite but worked for me. Bring a towel.

    Cannot pay with credit card, even tho its adverstised on their sign outside. No common area to hang out in, tiny kitchen with nasty soap.. didnt even cook in there. Receptionist very moody and kept getting up to do other things while I was trying to book stuff. Rooms are cold, blanket had hairs on it that 100% were not mine. Plus side is a hot shower and breakfast is included. Overall, would not recommend.
