The street was pretty quite, but we also just arrived around 10pm. The receptionist was friendly and showed us our room. It was clean and cozy. The pressure in the... More

I was visiting Costa Rica for an outdoor adventure with all details planned. I decided to arrive a day early and stay a day late to explore the San Jose area and after spending a lot of time researching B&Bs, hotels and hostels, I booked with Karolina (the owner) at Kaps Place. Karolina responded to communication quickly and was always... More

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...
