I was happy to find towels and soap included in the dorm. The staff helped us to schedule tours and buses to the parks. The included breakfast surpassed my expectations, with toast, pancakes, and omelet, and...

The rooms itself are simple but ok and looking at the price giving good value for your money. The staff helps you organizing your trips and a homemade breakfast is included. Recommendable place to stay during your trip to Monteverde.

This is a very nice place to stay. The owner, Yorle, gives you information about the area. Breakfast is included (eggs, toast, fruit, pancake, juice and coffee). At the breakfast table you meet the other people in the hotel, so there are a lot of conversations there. And finally, the rooms are good, the beds are great and the shower...

I stayed for 4 nights at Sloth Backpackers and had a great time. The breakfast is absolutely great, and definitely far above average comparing to other hostels in Costa Rica (if you even get breakfast). The open kitchen (bring you own salt, oil, etc) is small but nice. The dorm (5 beds) is small as well, there's not much space...

The dorms have extra blankets and are very comfortable. You've got hot shower, which is a great thing in Monteverde. The breakfast is very consistent and it's included in the price. The owner gives you the informations you need.
