This hostel is so nice. You can not even call it a hostel in my opinion. It is a grand building, with beautiful decorations inside. We slept in the dorm, for $10 per person. It has lockers and very comfortable beds. The dorm is open, which makes it very big. It's a nice and quiet hostel with kitchen and tv... More

I loved hotel casa del parque from the moment I entered the place. It is visually stunning but also feels so comfortable, like visiting my parents (if they had an Art Deco mansion) Fred and Roger and the rest of the staff were really helpful with every question I had. The only downside is the one shower in the ten... More

My boyfriend and I had originally planned to spend 4 days in Costa Rica and ended up staying for almost 2 weeks at this hostel. Aside from San Jose being a lovely city, I'll admit that the sunny living room, the well equipped kitchen and above all, the cleanliness and location of the hostel had something to do with our...

The hostel is located in a beautiful building right next to a park. The dorm sleeps 10 but the room is large enough to still feel comfortable (no bunk beds). The beautiful garden and the commons room with wifi and satellite TV are very social areas that invite to hang with other travellers. The crowd tends to be sociable and... More

The hostel is located in a very beautiful historical building. We stayed in a family room which was very spaceous. But after travelling for 7 months in Central america I can say the beds were very old and uncomfortable. As the hostel wasnt full it was ok with only one shared shower. What I dont understand is why there was... More

Hello, thanks for your feedback on the beds, we are working hard to save the money to change our bed frames, as far for the shower it doesn't come out from both tabs, you have close the lower tab with the middle knob, i believe i did tell you this when you came to the office and asked about it...

This feels more like a guesthouse than a hostel. The location is good, just 15 min walk to the city center. Shops and restaurants nearby. Security is good (looked doors, lockers, camera etc.). There's only one big dorm. And only two bathrooms (one shower). That can lead to some cues in the morning, or evening. Wifi is good, but not... More

The best hostel I've ever been at!!!! The owner is super nice, helpful and always smile. I felt like it is my home! I've been there twice, each time for 3 nights, and enjoyed every second. The private rooms are HUGE and the dorms are amazing as well, everything is designed so classic. There are books and art pictures on... More

Can't speak for the larger rooms and I'm guessing when you spend $40 dollars your expecting something half decent. But, that's why I check every hotel out on review sites before I choose a hotel suite. As a single traveller and as a hostel I can see why this is number one on another site. It's like living in a...

I've stayed at this hostel many times. I keep meaning to write a review, and always forget. Roger, the manager, is one of the nicest, most helpful hostel employees I have ever met (hi Roger!). The original architecture is beautiful, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the location is perfect; close enough to the center of town for a convenient... More
