Our only disappointment about this place was we could only stayed one night as we had to return back home. My wife an I stayed at several hostels in Costa Rica and throughout our life and must admit that this hostel should be a role model for all hostels. We stayed on a private room with washroom and shower. The... More

For the price, you can't complain! For super bargain prices, you get a nice colourful room in a nice setting within walking distance of downtown San Jose. The staff are super friendly and helpful, and can advise on almost anything you want to do in Costa Rica! A great find, highly recommended.

I spent a night here in Kaps Place and loved it. It's a cosy family run guesthouse with a pleasant atmosphere and decor within. It's a pretty building with lots of different corners - kitchens, 2 lounges, a TV room. The wifi works fast and the place is safe. The best part however is the breakfast!! It's a massive all...

Myself and 2 amigos made Kaps place home for 2 weeks in August. Karolina and her staff were pretty engaging, provided us with good service and helpful info about neighbourhood and things to do to pass our time in CR. Overall,we had a massive time. It was a great stay and have nothing major to complain about.
