Casa del parque is an old colonial house with bedrooms and a dormitory at the secondfloor. It's very convenient, with a taxi rank just at the corner of the street. The hostel is quiet, because of the park juste beside. Bedrooms are clean, the dormitory quiet small with a single one bathroom for the whole hostel (there is a restroom... More

My friend and I stayed in the large dorm room on the top floor. It was bright and spacious. The rest of the hostel seemed kinda dark and uninviting though. We had just arrived in Costa Rica and had traveled many hours before arriving at Hostel Casa del Parque-- we were exhausted and went to sleep rather early. We left... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room at Hostel Casa del Parque. Right away we were impressed by the security and the atmosphere of the hostel. As we settled in we realized the value for our money was fabulous! Roger was very friendly and gave us a tour of the place and laid out the hostel rules. The... More

We moved to this casa from another. In comparison, Casa Hostel Del Parque was incredible. The house is beautiful, and the staff incredibly helpful. We stayed two nights in the room above the garage. This room has received negative comments, but I loved it. The room is spacious, and has a gorgeous view of the mountains. Also, it's across the... More

We stayed one night in a double room. The room was really big, bright and clean. De hostel is in a beautiful old house, has a lot of communal areas inside and outside and a good kitchen. Only downside is that there is only one bathroom with a shower upstairs and one toilet downstairs to share for the dorm and... More

We stayed at the hostel for two nights (couple at the age of 22) and were pleased with the experience. Nothing fancy but an OK kitchen, nice common areas (especially the garden were we spent most our time there) and polite and helpfull staff. The dorm(!) was very basic but large, so you could have your own "area" without problem.... More

I only stayed at Casa Del Parque for one night, so that I could get to the San Jose airport the next day. I arrived around 8pm and hung around the hostel that night. It's gated and you have to buzz to get in so it's super safe. Great outdoor space with a big table and lots of people hanging... More

It feels like home: Beautiful, very clean and relaxed hostel. Nice dorm with good beds. Television room, living room, well equipped kitchen, nice garden, friendly staff and beautiful park in front of the door. It's just a few minutes walk into the city center. If you go out at night: make sure you have a key, because you can't get... More
