I stayed here two nights. The staff and owner were super nice. I would've left after the first night when I woke up with a ton of bed bug bites, but I had booked a shuttle to pick me up the next morning from the hostel and couldn't change my reservation. Judging by the other reviews over the past six... More

Despite only a quick visit hostel 1110 had all I needed. It is very quaint, clean and has a great kitchen and common areas. It's location is prime and is an ideal hub for exploring the city. It is also close to the main bus terminals. Very mellow and affordable.

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
