This place is cheap, central and the staff are friendly. But that's about all it has going. We had no hot water, it was loud (we had trouble sleeping) and it was seriously lacking any any kind of atmosphere. If you're on a budget, it's a great choice. If you can afford $3 a day more, then go somewhere else.

I do not recommend staying here. When we first arrived the place looked ok and the staff was nice. However, after spending sometime on the bed watching tv, we noticed bugs crawling on our stuff. They turned out to be bedbugs:( We took of the sheets and looked at the mattress and it was full of stains from the bugs... More

I wanted to stay at the hostel 1110 because it's cheap and was close to the bus terminal in San Jose. The people there are amazing! The wifi works well and the rooms and common spaces looked nice. However, when we went to sleep, we found out there were bedbugs in all the beds. We don't mind bugs, cockroaches and... More

We arrived in this hostel early january and only stayed for a few hours. At first the room looked very nice, but after a few hours the smell of the sewage was getting really bad. We still stayed there but when the hundreds of bedbugs conquered our bed we escaped in the same night. Do yourself a favor and don't... More

We reserved a room through Hostel Bookers and made the mistake of paying for 2 nights before we saw the room. As soon as we did enter (room number 5), we were greeted with a stench of sewage. We requested to change rooms, only to be told by the girl on reception that all the rooms smelt like that. She... More

I chose this place as it got so many great reviews. I'm amazed at how this was possible! The staff were friendly and very helpful. I needed to go to the shop late at night and they walked me there and were really nice. However, 1) before I arrived, I rang them and ordered a taxi to pick me up... More

Nice place with decent bfst included. Good helpful staff always willing to help. Hottest shower I've had in Central America as well which was a bonus. Recommended. Good kitchen and nice courtyard to eat in. Location not bad and close to downtown area

This hostel was the cleanest one and it seems to be really safe but there were only two or three other guests!!! Rooms are quite new and the staff is really friendly and helpful. I went there twice and I would always come back! I also recommended it to two friends and they were quite satisfied as well!

We ended up in Hostel 1110 by accident after missing our bus from the Tracopa bus station. A taxi driver took us here and at the time we were just grateful to have somewhere to stay. The owner was welcoming and we got a private room. The room was fine but didn't feel 100% clean. It needed redecorating and the... More
