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...

My sister and I spent our last night in Central America here before flying home and were looking for a place to chill out. This is exactly what we got! I can't even explain to you how good it felt to lay on a sofa and watch TV after several months of travelling. The staff were amazingly helpful, the rooms... More

Arrived here late at night and left early in the morning as I was just passing through San Jose to catch a bus so unfortunately can't comment too much on this place. From what I saw the dorms and bathrooms were very clean with proper hot water (none of that water heater rubbish with no pressure, though you do have... More

One of the best options in you want to stay in a nice place in San Jose. Now if you want to check out the night life better this is not a goog option because is not that close to all the clubs that you can check.

It's so funny that this is called a "hostel" because it really should be a "hotel." I had a one night stop over before heading to Panama and this was the perfect choice. If you have the same situation, it is located a few blocks away-super convenient. Great food, nice staff, gorgeous common areas to relax and unwind, comfy-clean beds... More

We are grateful for your comments, our goal is that the hostel is having high quality services, unfortunately for being situated in one of the main roads noise is one of our disadvantages, so we try to reward with our services. Greetings! More

We recently stayed at Casa Colon for one night at the end of a trip and it was perfect for our needs. With a private room, it had more of a hotel feel than a hostel feel. It's in that mid-range of pricing that seems hard to find in San Jose (the $30-50 range). The building is quite nice with... More

Thanks for your comments the hostel has private and shared rooms for all tastes of our customers, there are people who do not like to sleep with other people and prefer to have a private room, like you! Also We regret the inconvenience with the sheets! Best regards! More

We stayed in a 3 bed room and it was great. Very clean with nice sheets. Best shower I've had in Costa Rica. The place was a very charming boutique hostel. Relatively close to the airport as well.
