They were able to give us information about San Jose and other places to travel in Costa Rica. They were very personable and we enjoyed spending time with them in the evenings. Highly recommended. The only complaint is... More

I came here during the low season so I got great deal for a huge room. The mansion is beautiful and has a character! The staff is very professional and helpful. The location is great, so close to the china town and downtown area. The only thing is that I wish it has more bathrooms and toilets :)

There are large indoor and outdoor common areas, a well-equipped communal kitchen, hot water, free Wi-Fi, and luggage storage. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The hostel is... More
