The house is lovely, immaculately kept with a beautiful back garden sitting area I met lots of cool folks from all over the world and we hung out in San Jose. Special thanks to Roger and Celeste who made my stay like... More

This little hostel is in a nice house, especially the little garden is great. The dorm is a big open room, with just single beds (no bunk beds), which we liked. It is quite clean, except for the bed sheets. There are many comfy lounch areas for sitting and reading or watching TV, the kitchen is nice and clean. The... More

My friend & I flew into San Jose and stayed one night in Casa Del Parque. The hostel itself was an awesome place; for being located in the middle of the city, it gives a nice, tranquil vibe. Not to mention, the travelers staying at the hostel were really friendly. However, the service was very disappointing. The manager was rude... More

Having been travelling through Central America for 3 months now we were looking forward to a enjoyable New Year's Eve at Hostel Casa Del Parque based on some of the other glowing reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately our excitement soon turned to disappointment. We booked a double room with shared bathroom at the hostel the day before via hostelbookers.com and... More

This place is beautiful. It is an open, old mansion converted into a hostel. I felt more "at home" here than anywhere else on my trip. Very reasonably priced for such a beautiful spot, we paid 12$ each for a dorm bed. This place has multiple hangout spots, great wifi (doesn't reach the dorm upstairs though), a fully prepared kitchen,... More

This hostel is one of the greatest hostels i've stayed in. I felt in love with its arhitecture from the beginning. You really feel like home staying there. Roger, the guy from there, is so helpful and he know everything about Costa Rica off beaten path!

We stayed here for only one night. On one hand it was a good hostel, on the other hand we found it a little strange. When we arrived, our confirmed room was not available so we got the room at the back of the yard. Some kind of loft, but without a door! So no way to lock your room... More

A real traveller's oasis in the best neighbourhood in San Jose. Close to all ammenities. shops, markets (including a super cool organic green fair on Saturdays), museums, parks. Free wifi, coffee and tea. Super genuine, down-to-earth and friendly owner and staff... really will go out of their way to help you. As the smallest hostel in San Jose, and family... More

Given the nice location and positive reviews we reserved a room via booking.com. Upon arrival - after a long day of traveling - the guy at the reception simply told us there was no room available. Apparently their own booking system and that of booking.com are not synchronized so the room that was shown as available was not. Although they... More
