Awesome backpackers in la fortuna with a pool and a tours desk. No kitchen though... And really inconsiderate people in our dorm room that decided packing their bags for half an hour at 5am while everyone else was sleeping was a good idea...

The first night may have been a result of a mood - I was grumpy and tired. The music was loud, my roommates were young and excited and noisy. The room was hot and the base just kept pumping. The second and third night weren't as noisy which was awesome. Our window was broken which isn't great for security. The place has a great setup if you are willing to put up with the noise - pool, hammock tree, trampoline, volleyball court, nice bar.

Noisy tents, clean hostel

I stayed in a tent for $20/night. The tent is more like a regular room with a bed but with cloth walls. The bed was clean and nice, but unfortunately the bar across the street plays LOUD reaggeaton music late at night, so bring earplugs.

Freddie at the reception is awesome, he alone is worth one star.

Great for young college aged kids

We found this place to be a little more expensive than others and it reminded us of like a college spring break type place. We only stayed there one night and then switched hostels. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is nice and it is definitely a party type place.

Swinging through the Jungle

From Tamarindo we really stepped up the pace! Away from the coast and inland to the jungle! We got the shuttle bus to Monteverde which took about five hours and checked into Sloth Backpackers, picking up Tyler en-route - not a fan of the hostel with its wooden feel mattresses and sounding like it's situated on a highway, alongside the miserable …
