Great location. Really comfortable, clean and spacious rooms. Staff extremely helpful. Made sure we had tours or transfers organised before they left each day. Free very generous breakfast each morning. Kitchen available for use all day. Would highly recommend.
As a tour group staying in Monteverde we wanted to do some laundry. They advertise laundry services for $10 a pound. Doable. They tell us (and write on the receipt) to be back at either 8pm that night or 6am the next morning. Because we are leaving at 6:30 the next morning we arrive at 7:45 and wait for an hour. No one shows up. We knock on a few doors and try calling non stop and still nothing. They have our clothes. And we pre paid. We end up leaving because other guests tell us there has been no staff for a few hours. They closed hours early. So we come back at 6 in the morning, make our tour group wait until 7:15 and still nothing. We paid $50 for laundry and never got it. We came back to both of the two times they asked us. We were early and stayed late. Do not stay here or try and do laundry, they will scam you and you will end up without clothes. We are all livid.…
My friend and I reserved this hostel for two nights. After a very long bus ride we arrived to Sloth backpackers, only to find out that the hostel is always overbooked & we would be sent to a different hostel. There goes our joy of saying we stayed at the Sloth. This town is very small, so there is not a lot to do in this town and everything closes at 9pm (I mean EVERYTHING, so make sure you plan accordingly).
This hostel is amazing. The owner (Yorle) of this hostel was so helpful when giving information about the town Fantastic breakfasts, very clean, central location, beautifull rooms with tv and mini refrigerator, The breakfast is really good and generous. The location is right in the middle of town and a 2 minute walk from the bus station. There is a common kitchen that is pretty and very clean. The grocery store is not too far away. Amazing opportunities to take tours around Monteverde for good prices.They help you with everything. Arrange your trips for the days and arrange the transport to the next place. They even called for us for the transport to the final destination! I really enjoyed my stay. The personal is a really kind
Thanks Yorle and staff for accommodating our family of 10! Incredibly clean hostel with a great breakfast. Excellent advice on trips and tours. Go down a property to eat at Soda Coati, also owned by Yorle. Only reason for 4 stars is because it’s on the main drag (awesome for getting around), it is noisy. Thanks for everything- it was my 75-yr-old parents’ first time staying in a hostel!
