Hostel El Museo was great. I arrived several hours later than I told them I would check in and they saved my private room, although several other guests wanted it. Also, I only paid $30 for a private double (the price of a room without a private bathroom), and yet I received a room with a private bathroom! They were... More

Hostel El Museo is the place to stay in San Jose! Best thing about it was the fantastic service - the staff was very welcoming and made it a very fun stay. Perfect location and value make this one place you do not want to miss.

This was my first stay in a hostel, so I was unsure of what to expect. The rooms were kept clean & the beds were comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful & friendly, which made my stay very enjoyable. They were quick to offer use of the phones & Internet, as well as advice on where to go out safely... More

In terms of value for money this hostel is best we have stayed in. Clean and well maintained, very comfortable beds and a friendly staff. For the price, you cannot find anything better in Costa Rica.

By far the best location, just few steps from everything!! The staff is awesome, the rooms are brand new and really clean, you feel like if you where in an Hotel instead of the typical dirty, ugly hostel. All the staff are experts on turism, San Jose BEST places to visit and they will answer all the questions you may... More
