Excellent hostel--el mejor de San Jose. Beautiful and clean, this hostel is affordable and the staff are very friendly. Private suites and dormitory-style accommodations were perfect for a large group traveling together. Would recommend staying here to anyone in the area.

Beautiful house with nice sitting area outside! Huge, comfortable rooms. Super close to city centre but quiet! Bathroom wasn't really clean but I'm sure they would have cleaned it up if we had told them. We enjoyed our stay a lot!

The hostel is located downtown, but right off the side where it is not too crazy. So, you get easy access to the major attractions (walking distance) The house is beautiful and well kept, the place was very clean and the staff super friendly, i would totally recommend this place!!!!

We stayed here twice - once the night we landed in SJ and once the night before we left. First time we had a simple, clean private room. We were tired from our trip and late after flight problems, and really appreciated the staff staying up to take care of us. Left early next morning on a trip which we'd... More

I first arrived in San Jose a bit nervous and worried, there I was, fresh off the plane in front of a gated house (this place looks like a Costa Rican mansion by the way, including a gated front that you have to get buzzed into.) And I was greeted by an array of travelers from all over and a... More

Hostel was exactly as advertised on the other reviews here on TripAdvisor...super cool set-up in colonial house, safe location in San Jose. Above all, the owner and staff here go above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate their guests (as an example, they helped my friend and me change a tire on our rental car merely 1 hour...

This is a fantastic hostel in a safe part of San Jose. It is housed in an old colonial house and is like walking into a different world! A massive grand stair case dominates the entrance area with leather couches, a beautiful dining table and all the luxuries of home. They have made the house feel like home and people... More

We only got to stay one night but this hostel made us seriously consider to lay back a couple days in San José just so we could spend more time in this building. Unfortunately it was already fully booked :P Great central location, extremely friendly and helpful owner, clean, fully equipped with kitchen and nice TV room, nice courtyard with... More
