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 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

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.

Positive: The service by the owner and the ladies at the front desk was excellent. Very helpful and nice. The Junior Suite was very big and comfortable. Negative: The breakfast was tiny and the juice not always fresh. Also, it rained very strong one night and the ceiling was leaking on the bed and on the floor. The other guests... More

Enjoyed Casa Colon. Beautiful old family home converted into hotel/hostal. Only problems were noise in streetside units due to extremely heavy traffic and slippery floors in shower stalls. Very comfortable with good beds.
