    This place is AMAZING, the workers there, is the best. We came as strangers, and left as friends:) Our stay here was so great! The bed was comfy. Free breakfast was delicious, and they had a kitchen you can cook in. The best part about this place is the community. The people we met were so fun, and just has a great atmosphere! Would definitely recommend staying here!!

    They moved us from Sloth hostel to Coati hostel because they were full up and it was an accident overbooking. When booking Hostelworld said they still had 10 beds available in the dorms that I could I think they just do this on purpose to get the bookings then put customers in Coati hostel which is their partner. Coati wasn’t good. It was a smelly room above a restaurant. The restaurant fan goes through the room to the ceiling, so you smell all food they cook and hear everything too.

    While Sloth has a central location, it was tough to find anyone to help out with information. The woman in reception overcharged for many tours & shuttles, and used a higher conversion rate than was standard everywhere else from Colones to USD (610 while bank rates were 590 and most places were converting at 600), which she claimed was to recoup the conversion fee at the bank. Wifi was spotty or non existent, and they turn it off if someone doesn't wash their dishes. No social vibe either.
