    Loved my stay at the Guest House and would strongly recommend it. It’s not fancy or flash but it’s clean, central and has a very calm, relaxing atmosphere. Heidi and Peter are perfect hosts and I will stay there again if I’m ever back in the area.

    This guest house was everything we could have hoped for. The communal space is light and airy and has everything you could need. The rooms are nice and well decorated. The only thing we marked down on was the amount of ants but we understand this is often unavoidable in hot countries with food around. Overall, the highest recommendation for this place! Would stay again in a heartbeat!

    A nice place. Heidi was very helpful. Central location but not too noisy. It would have been better with more guests there.

    I loved staying at The Sleeping Indian. Despite being there alone, I felt comfy, cosy and I was told by Heidy to treat the place like home. Very quirky and interesting space with some lovely artwork by Heidy. It was a pleasure to meet Rocky the dog, Phoebe the cat, the Terrapins and the visiting birds. Heidy, Peter and Cristal were all lovely and welcoming. I'd definitely stay here again!

    Great location in a small town. Heidy was really helpful and knowledgeable about the area but we didn't see much of her which was an issue. The hostel offered tour prices which were only a little cheaper. The place had great character, awesome hammock and we were made to feel very welcome.

    Very Good

    Overall no frills good place to lay your head. Keep in mind On a very busy street so bring earplugs for sure. We were the only people in the whole hostel for our 2 nights which was nice. Rated staff low because we never got change for the money we had to pay in cash upon arrival (3k colones/$5) which is a little annoying, Pete said he would get it to us but then we had to leave very early in the morning. Great location in town, clean rooms. Gated parking for a rental car was dope.
