After a long trip from Bocas del toro this hostel was an oasis. The staff was friendly and helpful with onward transportation options. The location was very nice. The room was spacious, but a bit loud. Well equiped kitchen.

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our trip, in a private ensuite room. Next to a small park, the hostel is really spacious and feels beautifully grand and dilapidated at the same time - we loved it! It's really great value for money, is a short walk from the downtown area with shops and bars and... More

We stayed at this hostel for two nights at the start of our trip round Costa Rica. The dorm is spacious with comfy beds. There aren't enough plug sockets at all which is a slight downside, and the room is very dimly lit in some parts. There is only one shower for around 15 people to use and so always... More

The hostel itself is a really charming place BUT you have to know that the railway is right next to it (basically across the street). First trains are honking around 5 in the morning... because of that, this hostel was far to be a relaxing place. The shared parts were also poor: Only 1 shower for the whole hostel...with either...

As a group of four, we stayed in two of the 'deluxe rooms', which are very spacious. But thats all the positive I can say. One of the rooms was full of holes in the ground, but the big surprise was when we looked under the bed and we saw a great big hole through which numerous cockroaches could enter,... More

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
