Stayed here a few times. It's clean, safe and the location is great if your using ticabus (only 5 minutes walk from the terminal). There are cash machines right across the street too. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful and they all spoke good English if need be.

I had not planned to stay here however my airline misplaced my bag so I was forced to find accommodation in San Jose for the first night of my trip. The location is perfect, close to the major bus stations, and the interior is stunning. The common room is huge however it feels more like a restaurant/ social space than... More

Although the hotel is beautiful, the management has a terrible reputation for their treatment of foreign guests and workers. There are many other options in San Jose without bad reputations.I would highly recommend supporting other locations with your money.It is not worth the suffering they cause their workers.

This hostel was far nicer that I would have ever expected. It is an old house that his been converted. It is very beautiful and very clean. The staff is friendly and it's easy to get to by bus from the airport. Walking time to downtown is about 5 minutes. The only thing to warn you about (in case you... More

The hostel common area is beautiful and it's in a good location close to the center of any-town USA, er San Jose, but it doesn't quite make up for the so-so staff, so-so room (I splashed out on a private- it was the size of a shoebox and was directly across the hall from the communal bathroom where I was...

This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we arrived late. Our hosts arranged cab from the airport. (That was a nice touch that saved us from the throng of cabbies at the airport!) We found Casa Colon to be very secure and clean. Breakfast in the morning was fresh and flavorful. Casa Colon is located within close walking... More

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
