The location is central, within walking distance to a huge chunk of San Jose, and an affordable taxi jaunt to the bus station. The staff were so helpful! Friendly, relaxed, and knowledgable without trying to get us to go on every tour there was. The casa itself is gorgeous! Open and clean, with enough space to spread out but home-y... More

We really enjoyed being here! English-talking and friendly staff. The kitchen is clean and they have a tv-room with different movies you can put on. The dorm was actually quite fine, except when people were using the bathroom, just beside the beds, a loud noise came. Definitely a hostel worth staying at for some nights!

Felt safe. Great value for money paid. If I were to suggest one thing to the owner is to consider changing money... More

We stayed at this hostel for the first and last nights of our trips, so spent more time sleeping than fully utilizing the hostel's resources. The building was gorgeous... plants everywhere, fascinating architecture, lovely quiet patio to sit on. The hosts were kind and helpful, and fluent in Spanish and English. We stayed in a private room with a private... More

My friend booked this hostel for our arrival in San Jose based on it's excellent reviews. I have to say I was disappointed with the rooms. We were put in a double room next to Reception. It had double doors which led out to Reception but these had to be locked all the time and the curtains drawn for privacy.... More
