I chose this hostel to get a good nights sleep on a stopover in San Jose. For that it is perfect! The bathroom/shower is the best I've seen in all of Central America. Free (and great) wifi & breakfast. Very quiet and peaceful. If you're looking for a really social or busier environment then I recommend elsewhere, but if you... More

Our Management is deeply concern about this review/comment that attacks directly to the wellbeing of the Hostel and its owners with false accusations, situations that do not concern the rest of the guests; and above all a lost object in a private room to which only he had access. To other Hosts: Be aware of this person. Isabel Owner More

Thank you for an amazingly comfy time at your hostel! I booked five nights but suddenly wanted to join a roadtrip and therefore only stayed one night, which was no big deal for the owner and everything went smoothly. The hostel is in a safe area 5 min walking distance away from the nearest mall and an approximately 7 minute... More

In & Basic...is just that! Very basic but very clean & the owner is really helpful. It's outside of the city with only a supermarket & a few fast food joints in walking distance. There is a kitchen, however it's locked between 9-9 so bare this in mind if you're leaving early. Perfect for a night or two to start/end... More
