We stayed at Sleepers Sleep Cheaper knowing that coming from Nicaragua, Costa Rica overall would be a more expensive experience. We booked 3 nights here and 3 nights in the sister hostel in Monteverde. We arrived a day early, which was seemingly no problem at all for our gracious hosts Ronny and Maricio. They welcomed us heartily and were very accomodating. We got a room w/o bathroom, and upon first inspection, it was a bit musty. Hard to avoid in the area with all the rain, however, and even with my girlfriend's sensitive allergies we had no problems whatsoever.
We booked our activities easily and for the best rate with Sleepers, rented nice bikes, and also a nice breakfast is included with the room rate. Jeep-boat-jeep ride to Monteverde right to their sister hostel is convenient and cheap. This hostel is conveniently located next to the church and Parque Central and was very easy to find. I would recommend this place to anyone travelling on a budget and in this area, as it is a high tourist area with many expensive developments. It was a gem to find!
