I stayed in the dormitory, which was very spacious with lots of light, ensuite big bathroom and very good beds. The service is the friendliest I have ever experienced in a hostel, they will help you with anything you need and give you... More

Even right after I reserved the room online. I then received an email directly for the hostel explaining safety tips how the get there from the airport and even call a taxi for me. When I showed up. Nothing but helpful friendly staff that really went above and beyond. The people staying there from all around were fun and respectful.... More

We arrived in the afternoon and the lovely girl at the reception showed us everything, the rooms, the kitchen, the garden, where we can find supermarkets, restaurant... More

We just stayed for one night at the beginning of our journey. The staff was very friendly and gave us a lot of tips for our one-month journey through Costa-Rica. Bathroom and Kitchen were clean. We asked for an airport pick-up by the hostel in advance. Allthough we landed 1 day late (thunderstorm in San José...so we had to land... More

Hostel Urbano far exceeded my expectations in all aspects including cleanliness, hospitality, and amenities. I felt like I was staying more in a hotel because of the level of cleanliness was much higher than I expected for a hostel, there are both group and private rooms available, a nice size kitchen, as well as a TV area and garden. If... More

Hostel Urbano is a great place to stay. I haven't felt as comfortable in any other hostels. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming, clean, and tastefully artistic. It is not crowded, junky or unclean. The staff gives you a tour and helps you in any way you need. Breakfast is included and delicious! Everyone sits in the kitchen like family (and... More

The outsides first appearance is not all that beautiful, but inside is spacious and clean, and decorated well! The staff are all willing to help and so friendly to talk with and joke with. The breakfast was wonderful and the other travelers that were there echoed to feel of the hostel!

Great location for exploring San Jose and day trips around. It's located in a pretty safe neighborhood right on the main bus line into downtown San Jose. Bars, restaurants, bank, groceries... everything you need is close by. Not for light sleepers, though, since it is right on the Avenida Central with cars, trucks, lights, horns, etc.
