Sleepers Sleep Cheaper Hostel Reviews

Sleepers Sleep Cheaper Hostel is a family-run hostel and a good budget option for your stay in Monteverde. Good Wi-Fi is available throughout the hostel, though it may not reach to all of the rooms, especially on the top floor. There is a computer for guest use in the common room. A great breakfast is included -- Costa Rican coffee, cereal, cooked-to-order eggs, and fruit. From the reception desk, guests can book tours and excursions with no additional cost. Laundry service is available for a fee.

The Location

The hostel is well located in the heart of the very small town of Monteverde, right around the corner from the main street of the town. Bars, restaurants, and shopping are all within walking distance of the hostel. Most excursions booked in Monteverde will come with pickup from the hostel.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Sleepers Sleep Cheaper has a four-bed dorm room and private rooms accommodating one to four people. All of the rooms are competitively priced. The rooms are adequate and the bedding is comfortable, if not hilarious with Tweety Bird and Disney character designs. The bathrooms are spacious enough and clean. The showers have decent pressure and lots of hot water.

Common Spaces

The hostel has some outdoor seating areas on all levels of the hostels. There is also a large common space where reception is and where breakfast is offered. There is a TV in the common room and a small book exchange. Please note, though, that this is a family-run hostel, so sometimes the common space is used by the family during their meal times or when the children are watching TV. The kitchen is available for guest use. Despite this common space, the hostel is lacking the typical hostel atmosphere. It is not a party hostel and can be difficult to meet other travelers. It is more of a place to stay than a hostel where you can hang out.


Overall, Sleepers Sleep Cheaper is a good option for your stay in Monteverde. With its great location in town, excellent breakfast, and subdued atmosphere, it is a quiet place to relax after adventure activities in Monteverde.

Amazing place

Nice, friendly, staff who spoke great english. Very helpful with trip planning and knowing the best places to go for what ever you want. Hot water, big and delicious breakfast. the wifi had a limited range, but it was not a problem. clean rooms and great environment. i would go back here any time i am in monteverde. it is in a great location close to the 2 supermarkets in town. it is a little intimidating coming from the bus stop and walking through the town until you get to the place, but once you are there it is very comfortable and worth it.


Great Deal!

This place is hands down one of the best deals you can find in Costa Rica. For six bucks a night you get a bed, breakfast, Wi-Fi, and a hot shower. There's also a communal kitchen, a tv room, and a couple of computers for backpackers who don't have a laptop. The owner and his family are very helpful. Overall, its very clean and in an excellent location. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants a good, cheap place to stay in Monteverde.


Cozy place to hide from the wind

Glancing at the hostel from across the street, the hostel looked like nothing more than a shed tucked onto the hillside and we had doubts about going inside. There was no walkway to the door, just a hop over some thick crumbling concrete and a hammock swinging wildly in the wind outside the door. However, once inside, it was warm and cozy, a true refuge from that crazy Monteverde wind! Ronny and his family were so friendly and helped us book a sky tram trip. The rooms had views of the town and hills, with bedspreads that featured unicorns and Winnie the Pooh. Some of the little kids were noisy at times but quieted down after about 10. The hostel is located 5 minutes walking distance from the supermarket and restaurants, and of course, across the street from the beautiful building of the World of Insects. Nice kitchen and internet area too, though don't expect much from breakfast. The water is potable, but tastes yucky, so load up on the big jugs from the supermarket.


Sleepers Sleep Cheaper Hostel is the best hostel you could hope to find in Monteverde. They offer warm, family atmosphere and free breakfast -- all for a really low price! The owners are really helpful and lovely and they will help organize tours for you at a not-marked up price (which is not necessarily so in town).

The Location

The town of Monteverde is great if you want to experience the cloud forests of NW Costa Rica. They have many different trails, guided tours, self-tours, and canopy tours, which are awesome. The owners will also provide you with a map of the town, and will answer any questions you may have. Monteverde is a little touristy (to say the least). But once you get used to the long line of taxis down Main Street, you will realize you are in a beautiful and untainted place filled with nature -- it just takes some traveling to get there. Once you have decided to see the cloud forest, you will need to walk up the mountain to the sister town, Santa Elena, which is about three-quarters of a mile away. Or if you schedule a tour, they will drive you there.

Sleepers Hostel is located just off the main drag, a short walk from where the bus leaves you off. It is located across the street from an inexpensive local Pollo restaurant which serves great food and smoothies for cheap. Otherwise, there is not much past the hostel. The area of the hostel is very safe, and it is less than a five-minute walk to town.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are decorated in a charming yet youthful manner (the bedspreads have images of Taz and Tweety Bird on them, for example) -- most likely because the owners of this hostel have three young children. But once you get past this you will realize that the hostel is spotlessly clean! The bathrooms are clean too, and there is hot water for showers, which in Costa Rica is a rare find. For the price, this is one of the best deals you could find. Also, the free breakfast is very good -- consisting of fruit, eggs, toast, jam, and good coffee and tea.

Common Spaces

The common spaces are many and varied. The hostel's exterior is painted in bright colors, making sure you don't miss it. You enter a courtyard when you first come in, and then the hostel is divided into three separate areas -- the kitchen has its own area, with ample cooking space for guests (just ask), and then there is the office where you can use the (free!) internet, which can be kind of slow, but it's free, as well as check in with the owners. You can also hang out in the courtyard in front.


Overall this is a warm, friendly, safe and cozy hostel, making you feel welcome and at home. And with free breakfast and internet -- it's a great deal!

Erica Grier


Great hostel, really clean. Free internet. Awesome home cooked free breakfast, eggs/toast/fresh fruit/granola/milk/coffee. Owners are really helpful, booked all our tours and rides. Very homey place, the owner's whole family lives there, kids and all. Homey, but we had no problems when we came back drunk from Chancho's Bar. Go visit Chancho, walking distance, great bar, cheap drinks, bonfire. you'll meet some cool people.
