This hostel is the perfect deal for your stay in San Jose, close to Bus terminals, quiet place, looks like a "hacienda", very elegant and functional. Price is a very good deal to compare to the other hostels in the city and I will definitely sleep again there if I will go back to San Jose

I have stayed at Casa Colon three times now, and I now understand why I keep going back. The staff are always so friendly and helpful. You'll always be greeted with a smile and if you're struggling with anything they will always offer to help, whether this is booking a taxi, organising a tour or recommending the best places to...

Very nice place, and most of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice, location were nice and most of all the beds were nice to sleep in. I only thought the receptionist could have been a little more outgoing and helpful, when you asked a question it was like she did not care at all :)

I like this hostel. Being a world travel and having stayed in countless hostels, this is a good one. It is well located, has nice architecture, the bunk-beds in the dorm rooms are solid and comfortable. Wifi can be a little weak and depending on how busy the hostel is, it can get noisy, but overall, it's a decent place... More

Overall, this place was good. We stayed in the basic private room. It was very small, but it was clean and decently comfortable. Our garbage was emptied only once during our 4 night stay, and our bed was never made. We didn't really need it, but it would've been nice. Staff were friendly and tried to be helpful, although we...

We rented the private room for 50USD for 4 nights. It was clean & staff was helpful (not always 100% correct on the information) buy always willing to attempt to help! The water temp & pressure change a little during the shower (depends if anyone else flushes the toilet or turns on a tap) you may get a good blast... More

While the actual hostel is beautiful the biggest downside for me is the internet sucks! It does not reach to any of the private or dorm rooms. Even in the common area it's hard to get a connection. First night I arrived I had the junior suite no complaints at all! Second night went to an 8 person dorm. Place... More

In brief: The basics in a nice environment, but the service and accommodations could be better. The pros: -Breakfast included (rice, beans and eggs or fruit and eggs) - not very tasty, but it's there -Free wifi, though not the strongest -Cost reasonable ($55 per night for private room with queen bed) -Decor in the main areas is really cool...
